This week, we’ve seen two clients fall prey to the newest CryptoWall malware. These clients were tricked into opening infected files which, in turn, infected their systems. This is something that the customary anti-virus / anti-malware cannot stop because the user “invited” the intruder in.
In answer to this menace, ACTSmart has a solution that provides continuous protection from threats to your practice.
Here’s how it works:
If your office has a traditional firewall, and most offices do, it uses a protocol based security scheme that doesn’t protect the most vulnerable area of a dental office – you and your team. Much of the internet hacking and malware is aimed directly at the user in an attempt to gain access to a computer system (as in CryptolWall’s case) or to steal the user’s identity. This is the security component that needs fortification.
Today’s next gen identity based controls using Layer 8 technology, treats user identity as the 8th layer or the “human layer” in the network environment. This “best of breed”, advanced threat protection includes an Intrusion Prevention system, Gateway Anti-virus/Anti-Spyware, Gateway Anti-Spam, Web & Content Filtering and Outbound Spam Protection to secure against newly evolving threats.
Our Dental Office Security Solution is designed to prevent intrusion by staying ahead of and thwarting threats rather than having to deal with them once they are already inside your network. This level of pro-active protection is ultimately less costly than dealing with the aftermath of something already inside your system.
