Six Benefits of Alexio Defender

The Cybersecurity as a Service Suite Built for Dentists

In the ever-evolving world of technology, dental practices are often at the crossroads of innovation and risk. As medical professionals strive to provide the best care, they must also ensure that their patients’ information is secure and protected. This can be a daunting task for dentists with smaller budgets, who may have an IT provider but not specialists in cybersecurity. Enter CaaS, or Cybersecurity as a Service, a new offering from Alexio, Canada’s leading dental cybersecurity firm, that is transforming the dental industry.

An IT professional and a cybersecurity professional both have expertise in technology, but they have different areas of focus and expertise.

An IT professional typically focuses on maintaining and managing the technology infrastructure of an organization. This includes tasks such as setting up and maintaining computer systems, networks, servers, and software. IT professionals are also responsible for troubleshooting technical problems, providing technical support, and managing data storage and backup systems.

A cybersecurity professional, on the other hand, focuses on protecting an organization’s technology infrastructure and data from cyber threats. This includes tasks such as identifying and assessing potential security risks, implementing security measures to protect against cyber attacks, and monitoring and responding to security incidents. Cybersecurity professionals also have expertise in areas such as encryption, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and incident response.

In summary, an IT professional is primarily responsible for managing and maintaining technology infrastructure, while a cybersecurity professional is primarily responsible for protecting the technology infrastructure and data from cyber threats.

Alexio employs the largest number of certified privacy & cybersecurity professionals for the Canadian dental industry.
