If you’re unsure about what ransomware is – it’s malicious software that will not only block access to your computer system (take hostage) until you’ve paid money (a ransom) to unblock it, but will in all likelihood encrypt your valuable data as well as your backup data. In fact, some malware is so nasty it encrypts your backup data first.
It’s becoming more and more apparent that ransomware is the number one cyber threat to businesses large and small. That’s why Kaspersky Lab is offering an anti-ransomware tool that businesses can download for free.
Source Telecom offers McAfee (an Intel company) products to help protect your devices from most unwanted malware and malicious software attacks. This free Kaspersky tool can be used alongside your existing anti-virus; so whether you’re a McAfee/Source customer or not, we’re sure your business can benefit from it.
If you’d like to discuss security options for your devices and the associated costs, get in touch with the Source team.
