Thanks to the ransomware WannaCry, we experienced the first true overnight global digital pandemic – 250,000 machines infected within 24 hours.
The virus circulated at unprecedented speed through unpatched, unsecured systems. Desktops, laptops, tablets – and most importantly servers. There were billions in losses. It was easily preventable with proper security.
How we can Help
C3 has methods in place to protect our Managed Network clients – some of you have all of the protections, but most of you don’t. Now ALL servers, desktops, laptops and mobile devices need to be covered – because any device left unprotected is an opportunity to break into your system. See this quote from the Wall Street Journal today, from a published security professional, about how the Ransomware spread:
“Ms. Pinkard said an employee could have taken an office-issued laptop to a coffee shop or hotel and logged onto the venue’s unsecure internet network. If that laptop doesn’t have the antivirus protections that networks at big organizations typically have, a hacker could’ve slipped WannaCry onto the device.”
Here at C3, we know the cost of downtime. After having endured our own office being destroyed, we have learned the importance for continuity of business and disaster recovery plans. We want to ensure you have the proper coverage in place. It’s time to make a fresh assessment for your company.
