Ransomware is a type of malware that can target your computer or organizational network and subsequently lock you out of either your data or your computer network, or potentially both. Ransomware will often try to spread itself across the network and infect as many PCs, file services, and database services as possible. The information in the system of the victim will be converted to an unknown form by the attacker in this category of attack. The attacker will ask for a ransom amount from the victim to bring the content to its original form. Law enforcement agencies across the world discourage people from paying ransom demands as it only continues to fuel the appetite of criminals involved in these activities. There are, however, several steps that you can take to prepare for such events. In this blog, we have explored how to mitigate Ransomware attacks using Microsoft Azure tools.

Posted on September 6, 2022 by Rajesh KVN | Comments(1)

The power of quantum computers increases exponentially in proportion to qubits. Quantum computing has a huge impact in areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, molecular modelling, drug development, financial modelling, weather forecasting, traffic optimization, and supply chain logistics. Apart from these applications, there are certain threats of quantum computers to the field of cybersecurity. Quantum computers will be able to smash through the public-key encryption standards widely relied on today due to their exponentially higher processing power. According to the World Economic Forum’s recent report, quantum computing is one of the top five threats to cybersecurity. This blog identifies the ways in which security can be implemented effectively in the Quantum age.

Trust Neither a Zero Nor a One! Zero Trust Model Explained (without jargon)

Posted on June 20, 2022 by Komal Singh | Comments(46)

The term, Zero Trust comes from the fundamental principle that any access to the source must be verified. Regardless of the device and human location, the verification process is repeated regularly according to the workload. Usage of the same device and save the possibility of information availability is not an option.  The Zero Trust model works by assuming that every endpoint and connection is considered a threat. This is based on one of out of the three principles of the zero-trust model. This blog post brings out the important measures to be taken while implementing Zero Trust Models.
