Texas was recently under fire from ransomeware

Texas was recently under fire from ransomware, are you next?

Texas is a big state, an enormously big state. With around 30 million residents it’s the second biggest state in America, it has a land mass twice the size of Germany, and a GDP larger than Russia. Texans like to boast, “Everything is bigger in Texas”, and usually that’s a good thing to brag about. However, this time bigger was not at all better..

News hit a few weeks back that 22 government organisations in the Lone Wolf State were recently under attack by structured & sophisticated ransomware attacks. It’s a timely reminder that as attacks continue to evolve, it’s crucial that your protection evolves even faster.


How can I make sure I avoid a sophisticated, intellectual ransomware attack?

So how can you help ensure your business isn’t the next victim?

Does your solution provider or have industry-leading technology to ensure attackers can’t use un-patched, vulnerable software programs to distribute and install ransomware into your systems?

Puzzle Technology can perform tests on your systems to ensure that they are secure, and your business is conforming to appropriate methods, including penetration testing and intrusion testing, however, the very basic elements of patching endpoints with vendor security patching, ensuring antivirus is up to date is the often overlooked start point.

Should that not prevent a cyber attack – or should an exploit not be leveraged – how will your solution stop attacks it’s never seen?
