The internet can be a scary place. Is your business safe?
We rely so much on what we do over the internet. While larger public attacks such as Petya and WannaCry have been heavily publicized, there are so many other types of malicious attacks out there that it could make your head (and your business) spin.
Malware and its many iterations are at an all-time high right now and during our work-a-day lives you can get attacked, or allow yourself to be attacked without even knowing it. BILLIONS of dollars have been lost as a result of malware attacks on small businesses such as yours so it’s important to know what kind of attacks there are, and how neoRhino’s Rhino Advanced Security package can keep you and your wallet safe from malicious attacks.
These are just a few of many types of malware attacks that you could be a target of:
Ransomware: A type of malware that prevents or limits users from accessing their system by forcing its victims to pay the ransom through certain online payment methods (mainly through BitCoin) to get their data back. Some ransomware even will get even nastier by encrypting your files, such as a Cryptolocker or the more recently dangerous ransomware attacks: Petya & WannaCry.
Phishing: An attempt to acquire various amounts of personal information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy source, typically through e-mail. Those iffy e-mails that are urging you to click on a link or download a shady attachment are perfect examples of phishing. Don’t get caught on the hook!
Keylogging: You may not think someone is watching your typing skills, but keyloggers are and so much more. Keyloggers are hardware devices that track and record the real-time activity of a computer including programs used and of course, keyboard keys that are pressed, snapping up logins, passwords, credit card numbers and the like.
Malicious Links: Malicious links can hide anywhere and not having the knowledge of how to spot them can be dire. Phishing attempts in emails, questionable attachments online, invitations to Google Drive or nasty Dropbox links to infected files: millions of users get infected by malicious links like these every day.
Worms: Just as slimy as the real thing, computer worms are hidden programs that duplicate themselves and spread to other computers, injecting malicious code. They grow in strength through exploiting operating system & program vulnerabilities that should be patched through security updates. Worms also are synonymous with spam-sending malware, which can generate income for hackers by allowing them to sell spam-sending services.
Rhino Advanced Security gives your business the proper armor you need to stay safe from these types of malware attacks.
