As Your Trusted Outsourced Business IT Solutions Team…We Keep A Keen Eye Open For All Emerging Technology Threats.
PNJ Technology Partners is always keeping our eye on trends – we know that in the world of technology, nothing is stagnant. Cybercriminals are always seeking out new vulnerabilities and using new ways to compromise data. That’s why we’ve paid close attention to Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report for 2015, to better understand the biggest threats facing businesses today. Do you know what to look out for?
Data loss is too common these days, and its affects are often crippling. When you’re storing sensitive client information, you can’t afford to have it compromised. Likewise, you need assurance that your documents and work communications are kept secure, and that your resources are always accessible – so how are cybercriminals threating businesses today?
Cybercriminals are smart – they’re always looking for the newest and most effective ways to exploit your technology and to get their hands on sensitive data.
Ransomware attacks grew 113% last year, with more than a 4000% increase in crypto-ransomware attacks. Criminals use these attacks to hold documents, photos, and other files hostage until the victim pays a monetary fee to retrieve them. In many cases, the files are never recovered.
2014 also saw in a spike in attacks that tricked companies into infecting themselves. Attackers did this by attaching Trojans to software updates for common programs – once downloaded, the criminals were given unrestricted access to business networks.
Attacks on mobile devices have seen a monumental increase. With employees continuing to bring their own devices into the office – and using them to access sensitive data from other places – it’s crucial to have a proper handle on device management.
PNJ Technology Partners works with you to ensure that your security is proactive and comprehensive. We provide solutions designed to stop malicious intruders and ensure your livelihood is protected no matter what type of disaster hits.
