With the rise in Cryptowall and other ransomware infections, making sure your firewall is up-to-date with the latest firmware upgrade should be a huge priority for any business owner.
(Remember that ransomware is a particularly nasty strain of computer virus. It encrypts your files and demands a fee to get them back. See our October 2015 newsletter for more information.)
Why? Your firewall is your computer network’s first line of defense against all the nastiness that lurks on the Internet. While antivirus and other software can clean up viruses that have already invaded your network, an up-to-date firewall can help in the detection stage, as well as prevent unwanted elements from getting through to your system in the first place.
So, if you see a quote come through email from Tavis for a SonicWall® renewal, definitely find a place for it in your budget. We make it easy – just approve the quote and we’ll handle the rest.
For more information on why you should renew and update your SonicWall firewall, see our April 2015 newsletter.
