You may have heard recently about some Russian Malware that is going around. The headlines tell you you need to reboot your router to make sure your router isn't a part of a large botnet. Rebooting removes the malware from the device's memory, but it's likely to come back later if you don't lock the device down by changing the default passwords and updating the device.
If you are a client of ours, however, and are using a SonicWall firewall (either stand-alone or as part of our WestonShield program), then you don't need to worry about rebooting the firewall as Sonicwall devices are not affected.
As a CompleteCare client, you can rest assured that we are doing everything we can to protect your network from security threats and problematic malware. We were asked by a client recently what we do to help protect them from cyber threats, so we figured we’d share a bit of our multi-layered approach here (these are the major items but not the only items).
We’ve been an increasing number of attacks on PPTP VPN connections. PPTP VPN connections are the most common method for users to use a VPN connection to connect to their server back at the office. Recent attacks on a few of our clients have made us recommend (in some cases) an alternative VPN option to protect your server from these types of attacks. Read on for how you can help protect your server with a Sonicwall VPN connection and Intrusion protection.
