May Newsletter: The Vault

Welcome to The Vault.


April was saturated with news about the coronavirus pandemic and its implications for the economy, national health, and our daily lives. The cybersecurity industry is no exception, and the Blue Ridge Networks team has spent a great deal of time discussing pandemic-related threats and vulnerabilities with our customers, partners and colleagues. 


The rapid transition to accommodate a newly remote workforce has created vulnerabilities for businesses across the board. The increased use of personal devices, and significantly higher volume of business operations conducted over the internet, has dramatically increased the attack surface for hackers. In this environment, it's no longer enough to rely on detection. A comprehensive, defense in depth strategy which employs preventative solutions is the most reliable and effective way to protect your organization. 


It's important to remember that you are only as strong as your weakest link, and with the exponentially high number of employees working from home there are countless new weak links to look out for. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out. The Blue Ridge Networks team is available 24/7 to support our customers and their employees during this challenging time. 



What to Watch:

Introducing these proven solutions will bring unprecedented protection to businesses and government organizations in Qatar, and support the country's growing reputation as a regional leader.

We are also excited to share that we've established an alliance with Imaging Center to provide our proven endpoint and critical infrastructure solutions to private and public sector organizations in Mexico and Latin America. The additional layer of security enabled by AppGuard and LinkGuard will protect organizations growing within the rapidly developing LATAM economy from persistent and sophisticated cyber threats.

Resource of the Month:


Stop Emotet at the Earliest Stage with AppGuard 

Instances of cyberattacks, both attempted and successful, have skyrocketed during the coronavirus pandemic. To best protect ourselves, our organizations, and our proprietary data it's important to not only understand the threat level, but the tactics hackers are employing to lodge attacks. Emotet has proven to be one of the most costly and destructive malware variants the cybersecurity industry has ever seen, and it is likely to be leveraged by cybercriminals during this increasingly dangerous time.
