Protection 1, the premier full-service business and home security company in the U.S., today announced the launch of Protection 1 Cybersecurity, the first comprehensive security offering for small and mid-sized businesses in the Dallas/Fort Worth-area. To share the threat cyber-crime can have on the community, Protection 1 created a series of seminars titled “Digital Defense: Understanding Small Business Cybersecurity,” beginning Tuesday, July 26.

Protection 1 Cybersecurity has aligned with best-in-class providers, including Bitdefender, Cisco and Druva, to provide customized disaster recovery and network, endpoint and wireless security solutions to serve the small and mid-sized business market. Coupled with Protection 1’s exceptional customer service (99.7 percent of all customer calls answered in three rings or fewer), this offering can help small and mid-sized business customers navigate an emerging challenge that their businesses face.

“Protection 1 Cybersecurity is a direct response to our customers’ increased concerns regarding data breaches and e-security,” said Michael Keen, Vice President, Commercial Sales, Protection 1. “We’re evolving our best-in-class cyber security offering for national account customers to a solution tailored for our emerging business neighbors on Main Street. By combining physical and digital security, Dallas/Fort Worth-area business owners can now access full protection for their greatest asset.”

To build awareness around the topic of Cybersecurity, Protection 1 will be hosting a “Digital Defense” education series featuring industry leaders and experts, including Dallas Task Force Officer Stan Forney, who oversees Cyber Crime in Dallas. Each event will also feature a spotlight on a specific area of Cybersecurity, presented by expert solution providers. All events at 8 a.m. local time on the following dates/locations; to register, please visit www.protection1.com/cyberevents

·Thursday, August 11: Digital Defense: Understanding Small Business Cybersecurity & Wireless Security (Event 1013 – Plano, TX)

·Tuesday, August 16: Digital Defense: Understanding Small Business Cybersecurity & Disaster Recovery (Lena Pope – Amon Carter Center – Fort Worth, TX)

Key components of Protection 1’s Cybersecurity offering include:

·Network Security: Similar to when an alarm system alerts small business owners when their physical space is exposed, the Cisco Meraki Network Security notifies Protection 1 customers when their system is exposed, allowing Protection 1’s team of experts to take action before the system is hacked.

·Endpoint Security: While physical alarms monitor any motion that may occur, the Bitdefender Endpoint Security continuously scans digital networks for viruses and malware, and immediately alerts a monitoring center in case of any malicious activity attempts.

·Disaster Recovery: Data is critical to the business, and hackers can potentially obtain and hold valuable data ransom. Disaster Recovery from Druva will provide businesses the ability to back up their data to ensure disaster recovery and minimize downtime.

·Wireless Security: In addition to protecting business assets, Protection 1 Cyber Security can turn on-premise Internet traffic into customer data. Partnering with Meraki, business owners can obtain critical insights on passerby traffic, in-store time and repeat visitors. Additionally, the system can capture customer emails in-store through Wi-Fi for repeat marketing.
