06 Feb Are Your Devices Protected?
Ransomware is a type of malicious software, or malware, designed to deny access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid. It is typically spread through phishing emails or by unknowingly visiting an infected website. These attacks are becoming more sophisticated and, lucky for you, cyber-security professionals are taking action. With the right tools, you can prevent, detect and respond to ransomware attacks threatening you.
Ransomware can be devastating to an individual or an organization. Anyone with important data stored on their computer or network is at risk. Recovery can be a difficult process that may require the services of a reputable data recovery specialist, and some victims pay to recover their files. However, there is no guarantee that individuals will recover their files if they pay the ransom.
We use, and recommend, the services of PC Matic. They stop what others cannot with the use of an automated whitelist, fileless script blocking and brute force attack mitigation. PC Matic also includes patch management and driver updates, keeping known vulnerabilities patched before hackers can exploit them.
Additionally, all of the research, development and support for PC Matic is done right here in the United States. Their competitors outsource some piece of their product; research, development, support or all three. Brandesigns encourages using a service that keeps all pieces of computer – and other device security products in the United States.
Brandesigns uses PC Matic and we’ve found that it is an affordable protection service for up to five devices. This is a whole suite of optimization tools that are capable of significantly boosting system performance – in addition to providing security. They have full Android support and added support for macOS in November of 2019. You should consider this software, proudly made in America, for securing your devices.
