People lose mobile devices. Sometimes they get stolen. They can also be hacked. So we need Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), and Enterprise Security has reviewed solutions that can work for a widely disparate group of business units, colleges, faculty and staff.
As you know, on Friday there was a worldwide ransomware attack. Though that attack is currently partially halted, there are additional versions currently released that are live and active. Technical staff should be aware that this family of ransomware works by exploiting the Server Message Block vulnerability. Microsoft released patches on March 14 to address this.
By now you should have seen the news of widespread ransomware attacks. It is projected to have affected users in more than 150 countries.
In this attack ransomware called WannaCry was emailed to users. When opened, the malware locked files on their computers. Older versions of Microsoft Windows systems that have not applied security patches were affected.
