LegalTech in Leeds







SMEs have become more vulnerable to cyber-attacks, with businesses facing a 107% increase year-over-year in ransomware and extortion attacks.

The threat of losing sensitive information, system downtime, and financial and reputational damage has meant businesses are turning to Microsoft Defender to bolster their cybersecurity posture.

Microsoft Defender for Business is an enterprise-grade endpoint security solution designed for SMEs, with advanced features like endpoint protection and advanced threat detection.

For many SMEs, internal resources are limited and often don’t have the in-house capabilities to manage new and emerging threats as they come in. Defender for Business helps small businesses with out of box policies, and automated investigation and remediation help automatically protect you against the latest threats.

To keep security at the forefront of business, many turn to government frameworks to provide the benchmark of best practices. Defender for Business helps small businesses to achieve this by aligning their security capabilities with the four functions in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, which provides coverage above and beyond traditional antivirus.
