Security Alert: WannaCry Ransomware Attack

Written by SkyViewTek on . Posted in .

The latest security threat is called “WannaCry Ransomware Attack.” Many businesses and organizations around the world have been attacked in the last couple of days, including Fedex in the U.S. Security experts said the attack appeared to be caused by a self-replicating piece of software that enters companies and organizations when employees click on email attachments, then spreads quickly internally from computer to computer when employees share documents and other files.

Some businesses default to the built-in ISP firewall to help protect its computer network, which is bare minimum protection for a home network. We at SkyViewTek recommend a proper business-grade firewall – like SonicWALL – be used to help protect a business computer network.

Contact SkyViewTek for more information or to have a SonicWALL installed at your business.
