Although you might think that your company is already well-protected against malware, you can never be too careful. Protecting your business against the threat of hide and seek malware begins with understanding a little bit about it. You can’t fight what you don’t understand, so here are some things you should know about hide and seek malware.
What is Hide and Seek Malware?
Hide and seek (HNS) malware sneaks its way into your systems and finds ways to corrupt your network from the inside. This malicious software infects other devices on your network and re-tasks them away from their intended purpose and into something else, such as crashing your servers.
Resets typically work as your first line of defense against most types of ordinary malware, but because HNS malware is so much more devious it is also harder to remove. With Internet markets exploding in profitability (projected to reach around $17 trillion in 2020 – less than two years from now) any and all cybersecurity measures you can take to protect your company and your customers are absolutely necessary.
How Do You Stay Protected?
With all of this in mind, it can seem overwhelming to even know where to start enhancing your network protections. Fortunately, you can trust the experts at Global Harvest Networks to help you. Continually change both the network name and the password of your organization’s internal Wi-Fi networks to deny and thwart hacking attempts. Make sure the passwords are complicated enough to withstand basic intrusion techniques and be on the lookout for phishing attempts. Also, it is essential that you keep track of what these passwords are and have been. If you need to, increase the level of protection that your current firewalls provide, and if you haven’t done so already, proceed with updates for your antivirus and antimalware software solutions.
