The current virus attacks notably the version Windows XP which is not updated by Microsoft since 2014 !
As a result victim companies that have experienced this cyber attack have been exposed to this risk for more than 3 years.
And, what had to happen with such an occurrence finally happened...
All the more regrettable that Microsoft published in March an update to prevent this kind of attack and communicated about the risk.
We are obviously in the urgent need of blocking this virus in the affected companies and relaunching the activity.
But why have we reached this level of failure even in large companies?
And how to protect your company from a cyber attack?
SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) is the guarantee ! Why ?
Because no software is installed on PCs or on servers of the internal network.There is no compatibility problem between equipping company software versions and operating systems (OS) versions of PCs and servers...
The higher the number of internal software, the greater the risk of blocking operating systems updates.
In fact updating versions of software is always very complicated and risky and does not match the pace of updates to the Windows OS.
The company remains blocked in an old version of OS with the consequences in terms of cyber attack risks that we discover today.
The solution : all software is exclusively accessible in a web browser only on PCs, no software is installed internally on servers in the company.
That corresponds exactly to the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model with the software hosted in a highly secure data centre, especially against cyber attacks with antiviruses updated every 3 seconds and including a Quality Assurance and Safety Plan as described in the general operating conditions of BlueKanGo.
