BREAKING NEWS: Protect Your Device and Network From a Wi-Fi KRACK Attack

BREAKING NEWS: Protect Your Device and Network From a Wi-Fi KRACK Attack

A serious weakness in the WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access) protocol has been found, allowing attackers to intercept passwords, emails, and data on devices or access points within close range.

In other cases, ransomware or other malware is injected into a website a client is visiting.

Known as KRACK (short for Key Reinstallation Attacks), this attack affects the core WPA2 protocol and exploits normally encrypted data, especially on devices running Android, Linux, and OpenBSD.

While there are other ways to help with protection, like using HTTPS-protected web pages, this extra protection can still be bypassed by exploiting this weakness.

If possible, using a wired connection over Wi-Fi is ideal until patches become available and are applied to your devices.

This is an extremely serious issue that can drastically affect your privacy and personal information. We strongly encourage you to contact IntelliSyn today for more information on how to keep your personal and business Wi-Fi devices safe.

3 Security Steps All Businesses Should Be Implementing

3 Security Steps All Businesses Should Be Implementing

By | Blog

Every business, no matter the size, should be taking certain security measures to protect its business data and files from malicious intent and corruption.

Even if you’re not ready for external help with your IT, here are three things you can do today on your own:

  • Weekly backups for all files

The sensitivity and importance of your data, as well as how often you create new files, will determine how often your data should be backed up.

Once a week is a good starting rate, with increase or decrease once your business sees what it needs.

But, is a backup enough?

  • Secure your wireless network

Securing your wireless network is a must to keep your business data and files secure from corruption from cybercriminals. One important thing to do is change Wi-Fi passwords often.

  • Keep all devices/computers up to date

There’s a reason why Microsoft sends regular updates!

Most updates urge PC and Mac users to update the most secure software version compatible with certain devices, ridding bugs and any previous software issues and replacing them with the most current, best version available.

Older software is more susceptible to cyberattacks, so keep all devices and computers up to date to prevent any virus infections or data and file corruption.

If your network isn’t protected by the latest security technologies, you’re leaving your business wide open for attack. Eliminate the risk with scalable, turnkey IntelliSecure managed security and unified threat management (UTM) services.

When you’re ready to go beyond the basics, getting help from a Managed Service Provider (MSP) will ensure data and network security at a higher level.

Contact IntelliSyn today to learn more about how you should be protecting your business data and networks.

Two Categories of Cyberthreats to Keep an Eye out for This Fall

Two Categories of Cyberthreats to Keep an Eye out for This Fall

By | Blog

Protecting your business data from cyberthreats is crucial for business continuity and productivity.

As 2017 winds down, businesses still need to be on alert for cyberthreats, regardless of the time of year.

Critical Infrastructure: Power plants, electrical grids, and telecommunications networks (especially those constructed before the threat of cyberattacks) are at risk from organized cybercrime. A cyberattack resulting in a power outage to any of these critical infrastructures could cause substantial damage and harm.

IoT (Internet of Things): The IoT connects multiple physical devices to a network that enables the collection and exchange of data. With so many devices connected, the more easily a cyberthreat can launch a larger attack, making the IoT an ideal target for cybercriminals.

If your network isn’t protected by the latest security technologies, you’re leaving your business wide open for attack. Eliminate the risk with scalable, turnkey IntelliSecure managed security and unified threat management (UTM) services.

Our complete IntelliSecure security services are tailored to your unique business environment. They allow you to take advantage of the latest technologies and industry standards without the associated infrastructure, management, and support costs.
