Why You Need to Replace Your End-of-Life Security Hardware

Security threats continue to grow stronger, smarter, and more frequent for businesses every single year. That’s a fact.

So when companies actively rely on outdated IT security hardware or end-of-life units to protect their business assets from hackers, malicious threats, and other damaging data loss, they’re putting their employees and clients directly at risk.

Does your company share a similar strategy‎? If so, we highly recommend that your company makes a change.

The truth is, neglecting to patch, update, or replace your aging security hardware and software is never a good idea, even if you’re on a tight budget. Saving a few thousand dollars today may end up costing your business hundreds of thousands of dollars in downtime tomorrow, not to mention the irreparable damage to your company’s reputation for years after.

Luckily, there’s an easy way out of this. Providing a proactive alternative to the above, Trapp Technology offers industry-leading firewall and network monitoring solutions that put companies right at the razor’s edge of today’s most robust security practices and technology–all without breaking the bank.

By replacing your end-of-life equipment with modern security solutions, you’re ensuring ‎your business is as prepared and fortified as possible to defend against even the most aggressive security threats. For many companies, that could literally save the structural integrity and reputation of their businesses.

While this all seems like a no-brainer, you’d be surprised at the number of companies who take a “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it approach” to protecting their business. Coincidentally, these are the companies who end up giving us a call after they’ve been hacked. Who would’ve thought?
