Software and technology
Boosting and protecting tech firms online
The tech sector leads the charge on modern business: creative companies innovate their culture, infrastructure, and products to pioneer the next digital landscape. New technology breaks the paradigm, changing the game for everyone, from new smartphones to the latest developments in AI. Agile organizations embrace these adjustments, while maintaining their focus on great products and services.
Trust and security
Safety and compliance
For even the most dynamic software and tech companies, each new avenue brings an element of risk. Cybercriminals see the value in proprietary code, designs, and customer data, so organizations must steel themselves against evolving threats.
Data breaches cost the technology industry almost $5million each on average.
Under 40% of consumers trust tech companies for capability, reliability, and transparency.
The Irish data commissioner charged one tech company with a nine-figure compliance fine in May 2023.
Threats to the industry
Tech-enabled industries face tech-enabled threats. Attacks on infrastructure, product offering, colleagues, and clientbases mean that software and hardware companies must stay vigilant to protect themselves online.
As technological leaders, software and hardware companies alike stake their reputations on a reliable website presence.
However, cybercriminals target these assets from every angle, phishing admin credentials for your DNS server, hijacking expired domains, and launching DDoS attacks at vulnerable servers.
Regulators keep a close eye on data security in the tech industry, so any breaches around customer details, proprietary design information, or software source code wreaks chaos on an organization.
Hackers love holding tech data to ransom, or simply selling it on the dark web, so firms must be on their guard.
Tech companies connect with clients on as many platforms as possible, from websites to app stores to email and social media outlets. However, cybercriminals prowl each platform, ripping off a brand’s names, wording, images, and logos to trick their targets.
Impersonations damage an already-suffering public trust in tech, so companies stand out from the crowd by verifying their brand and curbing impostors.
Achieving these institutional goals
Tech spans a broad range of offerings, from SaaS to hardware. Companies succeed by valuing each objective in each category, and boosting and protecting their brand.
