Caretower launches new Ransomware Risk Reduction Service

Caretower are delighted to announce that we will be offering our customers another layer of defence against ransomware through our new Ransomware Risk Reduction service. This new service offering will provide an enhancement of up to 80% protection against known ransomware variants.

Ransomware attacks are on the increase, and in particular encryption of data with a demand for some form of payment for decryption. Our Ransomware Risk Reduction service provides another layer of defence against a highly professionalised, for-profit malware industry, which is constantly innovating and trying to either circumvent known security measures, or exploit unsecure or outdated systems.

By identifying similar patterns of behaviour within different variants, proactive protection rules for endpoint products can be configured on the following products: VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) and Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS). These rules aim at effectively preventing the installation and / or the payload of historical, current, and evolving new variants of all these threats.

Our Ransomware Risk Reduction service is an enhanced service provided in addition to our Managed ePO Service, and can be implemented on the following products:

  • Intel Security VirusScan Enterprise (VSE)
  • Intel Security Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS)

For more information on how this new service can support your business, contact us on 020 8372 1000 or email info@caretower.com

Bloxx product set replacement

As you may already know, on 2 November 2015, Akamai Technologies Inc. announced that it acquired Bloxx, the provider of Secure Web Gateway solutions. The acquisition will see the Bloxx product set discontinued (“end-of-lifed”), as product sales are halted in the UK after 31st January 2016. We understand that this sudden announcement has created a lot of uncertainty and worry amongst Bloxx customers.

Whilst Bloxx will be honouring existing contracts, this does mean that if you are a current Bloxx customer you will have to consider alternative solutions when your current contract expires. We can help you make this transition seamlessly, avoiding a potentially time consuming replacement project.

 Our technical team, who have a strong knowledge of Bloxx from our work with the solution for a number of years, are well placed to provide advice on an alternative that is best suited for your organisation.

 With strong relationships with the following partners, we can provide you with everything you need to replace your Bloxx product.

  • Proofpoint web security solutions
  • Sophos Secure Web Gateway
  • CensorNet's web and email security solutions
  • Barracuda web filter solutions
  • Websense Web Filter and Security
  • Trustwave Secure Web and Email Gateway
  • Mimecast email security

Don’t delay! With Bloxx end-of-life fast approaching, you’ll need a current, supported and fully functional web and email filtering solution in place. At Caretower we’re happy to provide more information and to assist you with your migration. Our goal is to make it smooth and hassle free, to incur minimal downtime and network disruption and to ensure the continued security and integrity of your web users.
