Malware attack : +62% in 2019

Malware attack : +62% in 2019. And it’s not the only alarming result: cyber crime leaders are producing increasingly diverse attacks.

Threats to cyber security are taking different forms. From Office documents actually malicious, to Macintosh malware.

The techniques are used, in particular, to implement data theft, often in exchange for a ransom.
ransomware or “ransom virus” are, in fact, among the most feared malware because, using sophisticated cryptographic techniques in their attacks, prevent victims from accessing
their files or their entire device, then requesting the anonymous online payment of a ransom to regain access.

Ransomware is, therefore, a much-feared threat, especially in the corporate environment, because it jeopardises the security of valuable information assets.

Take action promptly

The technical team of PromiGroup has recently completed an important rescue action at a customer company.
In this case, thanks to the use of Veeam Backup and Replication, it was possible to implement a backup system that allowed in less than one working day the restoration of 6 servers, along with all systems and business data.

Such backups have been confined within a repository, safe from any intrusion attempt, thanks also to the proprietary security systems of Veeam.

Although the customer’s operation has been temporarily and completely blocked, thanks to the installation of Veeam Backup and Replication we have been able to avail ourselves of a rescue plan that has set up the entire IT system, returning in a short time the full and complete business operation.

Our staff has been present at the customer’s premises since the early hours after the disaster announcement and has supported IT personnel in all phases, from the detection of the origin of the virus to its elimination, up to coordination of recovery and finalisation procedures.

Attacchi informatici

Company closes after 61 years of business and fires 300 employees due to ransomware attacks

It happened in Arkansas (United States), where, on the last October, “The Heritage Company”, a company with 61 years of business, has suffered some ransomware attacks that have blocked the company system, taking all the data hostage.

The payment of the ransom demanded from the hackers was vain, as well as the operations of restore, that caused to the company losses of hundreds of thousands of dollars and led the company to choose to leave the dependent at home.

 

It is not an isolated phenomenon

The bitter story of the Arkansas, unfortunately, doesn’t remain an isolated phenomenon. The ransomware attacks are, in fact, constantly expanding, just think of the 16,017 new versions detected by researchers of all major antivirus brands in the world in the second quarter of 2019, including those belonging to eight new malware families (more than double the number of new samples taken a year ago for the second quarter of 2018).

Cryptolocker, in particular, is a trojan virus, a variant of ransomware that infiltrates within systems systematically attempting to access every available network resource in order to encrypt all data, making all the files on which it can write unreadable and irrecoverable. Often, in fact, the cryptographic keys used by these viruses are so complex that it would take hundreds of years of calculations to remove encryption from corrupted files.

Ransomware Attacks

Italy among the most affected countries in the world

The ransomware attacks are growing steadily and among the most affected nations figure just the Italy.

According to evasive Threats, pervasive effects (Micro trend report on cyber threats of 2019) our country is, in fact, at the top of the world rankings, fourth to the world most affected by malware and twelfth to ransomware raids.

 

The importance of prevention

PromiGroup with its own team of certified technicians offers companies a service of prevention from cyber attacks through intercept X of Sophos.

Experts agree: Intercept X constantly receives the best evaluations in independent tests and in the reports of endpoint protection analysts. Thanks to its combination of cutting-edge technologies, such as Deep Learning and EDR (endpoint detection and Response: detection and response to endpoint threats), Intercept X offers a security of levels never reached before, to protect systems against unknown malware, exploits and ransomware attacks.

Sophos Intercept X blocks a wide range of threats, thanks to its approach to endpoint protection based on the concept of defense in depth. It differs from traditional systems, which adopt a single main technique. It is a combination of basic (traditional) and modern techniques (next-gen) market leaders.

Intercept X consolidates in a single solution the detection antimalware recognized industry leader, the best defense structure against exploits and an integrated system of detection and response to threats endpoint (endpoint detection and Response, EDR). Prevention against threats, at levels never seen before.

Artificial intelligence integrated in Intercept X is a neural network of Deep Learning, an advanced form of Machine Learning that can detect both known and unknown malware, without using signatures.

Deep Learning makes Intercept X a smarter, more scalable and faster-performing solution than end-point protection solutions based on traditional Machine Learning or just signature-based detection.

• more agility in service design thanks to established practices
• a better communication with colleagues and customers thanks to shared terminology
• easier to implement and control services in a changing environment
• more ability to discuss profitably with business
• a better demonstration of the value of the service by a utility measurement model

Considered the advantages listed and the increased demand of this kind of certification from the companies, it’s evident the importance to adopt an ITIL V4 qualified technical team.

From Project Milano to PromiGroup: the new website that tells the evolution of its experience

 

“How do you grow up?”

Not forgetting that you were a child.

“And what does it mean?”

It means that all adults have been children, but only a few of them remember it, and this inevitably slows the growth, intended as a constant improvement. True progress requires courage, curiosity and passion; it needs that positive unconsciousness that is unique in young minds, keen to innovate and experiment.

“That’s true: adults, like you, think too much and never risk”

Of course, but adults like me keep something precious; the knowledge gained in over 30 years of experience. While you put your soul, creativity and determination necessary to ensure that what we have never stops growing, I give you my experience, to allow you a constantly evolution through the values of your youth.

 

 

“So, I will grow as you did and I will do the things you did?”

Even more. I made my roots grow in this land, but you can broaden your horizons, bringing your ideas and my knowledge far, beyond the Peninsula and beyond Europe. You have already arrived in Australia, New Zealand and the United States, you have laid the foundations in Switzerland and every day you help companies, offering your services wherever you stopped off.

“But who doesn’t know me how could he know all these things?”

Today there is a site called www.promigroup.com, in which it is written our history, your evolution, our success stories and the news that numerous newspapers have dedicated to us, and that we have included within the “press release” section. Furthermore, the strategic allies that will accompany you in your growth and various pages listing the solutions intended for those who decide to trust you are also present. Finally, there is also a blog area, dedicated to all the users who want to know who you are, what you do and how you can add value to their business.

“And now?”

Now, don’t forget who you are!
