Who works 24/7? Not you, I hope – but hackers around the globe are busy trying to compromise systems 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “Next-gen” is not just a convenient marketing term, it is very accurate label for new types of threats and new types of solutions designed to counter those threats.
The basic nature of PC and server (aka “endpoint”) security and threats to same had not changed in many years. For years, the enemy would be the rogue program (.EXE) or Word macro that would find its way on to our system and either destroy our data or perhaps surreptitiously take control of our system either to steal our data or add our system to its army of drones – or both.
The traditional endpoint security solution would rely on its researchers to learn the digital fingerprints – usually referred to as the signature – of the virus. Upon detection, the entire offending program or macro would be isolated (quarantined) and, ultimately, deleted.
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). NCSAM was formed in 2014 and is observed to raise awareness around the importance of cybersecurity.
At SiteLock, we too believe in creating a secure Internet for every individual. Beyond protecting websites, our goal is to teach all Internet users about cyber threats and risks. One way we do this is by attending various trade shows around the world to help raise awareness around the importance of cybersecurity.
It’s appropriate, then, that our our hometown WordCamp, WordCamp Phoenix, happened during the first weekend of Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
