WannaCry Ransomware Update

wannacry

Announcement to our clients:

We wanted to take a second to update you on the ongoing ransomware threat reported in the news starting Friday (reference article at bottom of this email), and you will be glad to hear that we already have all your systems under management updated to protect your equipment and data from this ransomware as much as we can. The main vector of attack is a recent vulnerability, which we have had patched for you for 3 weeks already. 

Specifically, this is Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010, which released March 14, 2017, and we patch within 2 weeks across the board continuously, so this has been fully patched for your protection since the 21st of March. We delay push of new updates by a week to catch potential bad patches, but deploy it shortly thereafter to protect for short-term hacks.

 

The patch prevents the spread of the ransomware across an internal network, not the initial infection, so please reiterate to your staff the importance of extreme vigilance when opening files from email or the internet. If in doubt, simply contact your support staff and we can assist with evaluating the safety of a file and its source.

This specific ransomware was halted accidentally by a security researcher looking into it, but please be assured we are continuously managing your security to minimize your exposure, to ALL threats, and running security measures in the background to maximize your safety and productivity.

Are you using Outlook on your iPhone yet?

Microsoft just recently updated Outlook for iOS.  Business users that have Exchange or Office 365 mail servers will see the new mobile Outlook as a solid addition for their iPhone and iPad.  Outlook unifies mail, calendaring and files into one app making it easier to keep your business tools aligned.  If you area business user of Office 365 you really need to try this app out for mail on your iPhone.

"The best email app for the iPhone." - The Verge

PC Outlook users will appreciate the unified suite of applications that Outlook for iOS brings into one mobile app. Access to your files in OneDrive, Dropbox, Box and Google Drive is an option too.  No need to jump back and forth between Mail and Calendar on your iOS devices.  You can add other mail services like your Google and Yahoo accounts as well. 

There are a solid base of features already built into the app and was very well thought out by the Microsoft development team.  For example you can customize swipes from your preference settings to delete, archive, flag, move, or mark your mail.  Quick links to share files in mail from your cloud drives.  The calendar view is easy to navigate and straightforward to edit. The app launches quickly and is very responsive.  

Users will like how easy the app is to setup and will find the user interface very intuitive as they get started.  Once I had it running on my iPad, I was anxious to install it on my iPhone.  

In addition, ActiveSync can be used for remote wipes and uses a passcode to encrypt all the data stored on your device.  There are a surprising number of features to make any current PC iOS user happy, but of course room for some improvements with contacts in future releases. 

In addition, if you are an Office 365 user be sure to check out Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and One Note for iOS.  Microsoft is really serving up a strong suite of apps that work very well together and now with Outlook it really completes the package. Better yet this is free to all Office 365 subscribers. You can download all of these apps in the iTunes store today.
