mem property management, one of the leading property management companies in New Jersey, recently announced a major information security and server upgrade to keep pace with the company’s recent growth and ensure the safety and security of client data.
As part of the new upgrade, mem property management will be using a new, state of the art HP Server with VMware ESXi and configured to host two virtual machines. mem will have a new domain controller/file server running Microsoft Server 2019, and a new terminal server running Server 2012 for TOPS Pro. In addition, mem property management replaced an older 10/100 switch with a new gigabit switch for better performance, a new Firewall with more security and a new UPS to protect the new hardware from unexpected power failures or power surges.
“Over the past year we have launched mem construction services, mem construction services, mem insurance services and resale services. We want to make sure our information technology and security infrastructure keeps pace with our company’s growth and success,” explains Martin Laderman, founder and CEO of mem property management.
Hardly a week goes by without news reports drawing attention to the latest data breach. Facebook, Yahoo, CapitalOne, Equifax are just some of the data breaches impacting hundreds of millions of customers. While it may seem like an inevitable part of being online or doing business in the digital age — it’s likely that everyone has had their data breached or knows someone who has — it’s not something that consumers should have to deal with and forward-thinking companies, like mem property management, are working to make sure their clients’ and customers’ information is safe.
Data breaches officially refer to instances when a person’s name, financial information, Social Security number, and/or medical record is given to a third-party. However, there are less invasive yet equally damaging data breaches, including personal information like an individual’s phone number or email address. While this may seem relatively inconsequential, having customers’ email address or phone number in the hands of individuals or organizations who do not have permission can have devastating long-term consequences.
Data breaches are also costly for companies. Aside from the reputational damage, according to a recent study sponsored by IBM Security, the average cost for an individual hacked record cost companies $225 each, and a data breach costs a company on average $8.19 million, an increase from $7.91 million in 2018.
“We appreciate the hard work of our technology team and vendors who have worked hard over these last several months to ensure mem property management is an industry leader in the property management space for adopting best practices for information and data security,” said Laderman.
