RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2015) - Security First Corp., the industry leader in software-defined data-centric security technology, announced today its participation in this year's National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Founded and led by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, National Cyber Security Awareness Month encourages education and raises awareness of the need for cyber security.

"National Cyber Security Awareness Month reminds us all that we must remain vigilant in our efforts and fight to keep our nation's data secure. In the face of such a high number of attacks and their disastrous results, we must safeguard both a company's data and their customers' information from attackers," said O'Hare. "As experts in this field for over 30 years, we are happy to be champions for this important outreach program that recognizes the importance of new technologies and methods available to combat data breaches."

In conjunction with National Cyber Security Awareness Month's Stop.Think.Connect.™ campaign, Security First Corp. shares the following three cyber security tips for businesses across all industries:

  • Move to software-defined data security solutions instead of traditional, hardware based encryption for a faster, simpler and more cost-effective approach;
  • Ensure true protection by implementing security solutions that protect the data itself, and not just the network; and
  • Keep end point devices like phones, tablets, computers, point-of-sale systems and the like safe by utilizing software-based data protection solutions.

"Too many businesses approach cyber security by only protecting the network. Unfortunately, we have seen time and time again that those fortresses can be penetrated -- really it's just a matter of time," said O'Hare. "At Security First Corp. we encourage CIO's and CTO's around the globe to consider technology that adds an additional layer of protection that delivers data confidentiality, privacy, integrity and high availability, all while meeting and exceeding an organization's compliance requirements. This way, even if networks are breached, the data itself is not compromised and is safeguarded against exfiltration. We feel it's time businesses approach cyber security from a new angle."
