To Stop Data Theft, Disconnect From The Internet?

January 2015

At the back end of 2014, Forbes published a great article “To Stop Data Theft, Let’s Start Disconnecting Computers From The Internet

The last paragraph says:

Some corporate and government data simply doesn’t belong on the Internet. Why is that so hard to understand?

A good question indeed.

The majority of Nexor’s customers run such networks. But while these networks are not directly connected, there are good reasons why they need to get data from the Internet. For example Windows update, application updates, anti-virus updates.

This is where Nexor excel – segregating networks to mitigate risks, but enabling key data exchanges to take place.

An example of a solution of this type is described in the blog Secure Windows Updates.

Can Nexor help your business disconnect!?!
