Why Virtualization Rocks; Stopping Nation-State, Polymorphic Malware (video)

2017-05-16 14:15
  • The WannaCry ransomware attack was a call to arms.
  • We actually were lucky; it could have been a lot worse.
  • Employees need to open attachments; you need to stop worrying about that.

In the shadow of WannaCry, we hosted a live webcast with our co-founder, Ian Pratt and team members, Robert Wiggenhorn and Simon Plant, to answer questions about the ransomware attack. To get a foothold, WannaCry had to deliver it’s payload. As we understand it, that came through a downloaded file. The attack was simple and most next-gen anti-virus caught the malware once it was known, but next time, it could be a polymorphic breach and companies might not be so lucky.

To learn more about what went down, watch the video below.

Then consider these questions when doing a self-assessment to see if virtualization might be for you:

  1. Are you worried about stopping malware that is unknown: nation-state, polymorphic, or zero-days?
  2. Are your teams current restricted by what they can do (e.g blocked websites, fear of attachments) and is that limiting productivity?
  3. Do you run Windows 7 or above and use Internet Explorer?
  4. Do you have legacy applications that rely on Java or Flash?
  5. Are your employees signed-up to obey your security policies (our latest research suggest humans – your humans(!) are still the biggest risk to security)?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you owe it to yourself to learn more.

We are serious security for those who are seriously about protecting their assets. We offer a low cost Risk Assessment that makes sure your environment is a fit for virtualization and to identify where we can instantly add value. If you decide to purchase Bromium, there’s no charge for the assessment. A typical installment starts with 1,000 endpoints (we’ll do the assessment on just 500 endpoints to make sure you see value).

The easiest way to get started is to contact us. We’ll work with you to address your needs.
