Employees keeping your Data Safe?

One morning late last year, an unemployed man was making his way across London, heading to the library to continue his job search. But on the way, he encountered something peculiar: a USB stick, peeking out among the fallen leaves and shining in the morning sun.

Top 4 Ways Hackers Will Attack Your Network


Most small and midsize business (SMB) owners exist in a bubble of blissful ignorance. They focus on the day-to-day operations of their organization, driving growth, facilitating hiring and guiding marketing, without a single thought given to the security of the computer networks these processes depend on. After all, they’re just the little guy – why would hackers go to the trouble of penetrating their systems for the minuscule amount of data they store?

 

And eventually, often after years of smooth sailing through calm seas, they get hacked, fork out thousands of dollars to malicious hackers and collapse beneath the weight of their own shortsightedness.

The latest ransomware threat is called Petya


Here we go again, another major ransomware attack in Europe and the United States within a couple of months.  This one is called Petya and it's been working its way here in the US by using the same exploit of SMBv1 that WannaCry used which rapidly spreads across networks.  

Petya which also has been referred to as Petwrap has been bringing computers down at corporations, banks and other companies.  How Petya works is that it will reboot the computer and encrypt the hard dive's master file table, which makes the master boot record inoperable restricting access to the system.  It will replace the master boot record with it's own code which displays a ransom note and leaves computers unable to boot.

APT Blocker-Your Best Defense in the War Against Ransomeware


The more sophisticated malware gets the more sophisticated your firewall has to be to fight it.  WatchGuard has added APT (Advanced Persistent Threats) Blocker as another layer of prevention against advance ransomeware viruses that encrypt all of your data and make it inaccessible. 

APT blocker checks file against an existing database of malware. This happens first on the firewall itself and then in the cloud.  If the file has never been seen before it is analyzed, and if found to be suspicious, blocked from ever entering your network.
