Small businesses are at risk of collapse, says Kaner

Jerry Kaner, Ciphertex data security president and CEO, has said that small businesses are inherently at a greater risk of business collapse in today’s digital economy. According to him, this is because of natural disasters, data theft, and data loss.

Kaner is considered to be a data security and data forensics expert. He believes that small businesses such as smaller health clinics, production studios, and legal offices likely do not have an IT department to help them mitigate the risks that can cause serious damage.

Typically, small businesses either do not back up their data, do not update their software regularly enough, or do not know enough about the latest data security threats in the digital world. Securing and reliably storing data is absolutely critical when it comes to the sustainability of the business. It ‘is also of critical importance should a natural disaster strike, and data needs restoring.

To provide a solution to the ever-present problem faced by the market, Ciphertex has come up with portable storage devices, which, according to Kaner, offer unparalleled security and protection. This is a business-ready product, and is suitable both for small businesses and enterprise-level organisations.

Ciphertex bears the US Government’s seal of approval, since their products are being used in the US military to protect sensitive information. Their products are HIPAA compliant, and use an AES 256-bit encryption to protect data against natural disasters, loss, and theft. Their portable NAS servers are now available, and have the capacity of storing 8-100TB of data.
