Don’t Let This Happen to Your Company

Employees come and go – but in this case a departing employee took thousands of confidential supplier and customer records from the sports-apparel firm Fanatics when he left to join a rival company.

How did he do it? It wasn’t an elaborate hack. He simply grabbed one of Fanatics’ own flash drives and copied the data from his password protected company laptop. He planned to share the data with his new employer. And because Fanatics is a $3 billion company, the stolen data was worth a lot.

This type of employee behavior is difficult to monitor and control – unless you have a MicroData Managed Service Plan. Every MicroData MSP includes our exclusive Ransomware Guardian toolset that lets you implement a variety of user controls including the ability restrict the use of Flash drives on a company, group, or individual basis. And yes, it also includes the ability to restrict the use of web-based file sharing services like DropBox™ and OneDrive™.

If your current provider or IT system doesn’t have these types of security tools, give us a call and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with the latest in IT protection .
