2016_02_Ransomware Strikes Again-01

If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times. . .

. . .alright, as my wife would say, I am prone to exaggeration but still we did tell you at least a dozen times, including:

  • Avoid Crypto-Locker type threats through Application Control
  • How to Stop Zero-Day Malware Once and For All
  • AppSense Endpoint Security Adoption on the Move

AppSense Endpoint Security Adoption on the Move

Fix your vulnerability to Ransomware, (e.g. Cryptolocker) zero day malware, WITHOUT impacting user productivity.

AppSense Application Manager (AM) runs at the desktop level; with a kernel level driver that controls what runs (funnily enough we don’t actually stop anyone downloading malware – what we do is stop that malware being executed). Also it is important to note AM runs locally on each desktop or virtual desktop and has a configuration file locally installed that the user cannot stop, remove or modify.

Application Manager does a lot more than this and it’s easy to install plus evaluate. We’d be delighted to show you what we’ve done with some of our other 3,600 customers worldwide across millions of desktops.

Don’t let yourself getting into the same sad state as Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles and many others, give us a call or email us at: [email protected].
