October is Cyber Security Awareness Month
What can we do to combat ransomware?
First, make sure the operating systems for your network and connected devices are up to date. The 2017 WannaCry ransomware attack targeted computers running Windows 7. WannaCry developed from U.S. National Security Agency tools that leaked online. According to TechCrunch, up to a million computers are still vulnerable to WannaCry. Because they are running Windows 7 or earlier Windows versions. Microsoft also ends its support for Windows 7 in January 2020. Ransomware and other types of hacking attacks often target older operating systems. Because they are no longer receiving regular security updates and patches. Underdog Computer and Network Support LLC keeps businesses up to date and ahead of the curve!
Second, make sure your security software is also up to date. Check it at least once a month. With Underdog Serenity Care Solutions, our Security Software is always up to date. Ready to handle Zero-day malware
Third, make sure you and your employees know how to recognize potential security threats. Practice good computer habits that prevent intrusions. For example, do not click on any links or images that come from an unknown source no matter what! Underdog Computer and Network Support not only keeps you safe but teaches you how to be safe!
Finally, make sure you have a good offsite backup. Businesses that have overcome ransomware attacks have strong and redundant backups! You may lose time, but you won’t lose all your business data. If you’re in a field that keeps confidential client or customer information. It’s essential for your business to have secure, safe backups of data in the cloud and/or separate physical data storage. Underdog Computer and Network Support provides encrypted offsite “cloud” backup solutions. As well as Backup/Disaster Recovery Solutions. We understand the myriad of compliance needs your industry must adhere to!

We found it very easy to work with Carmine. He gave a very clear and professional quote, he has been promptly responsive in all communications, and the network is working great. I feel very good about using his company for any future IT needs for our business.
Barton Heights had a very successful computer upgrade due to Carmine. I met with him 2-3 months before the project and he gave us an estimate of the entire upgrade process involving 31 computers and a server. He advised us and placed the order. He also worked with us and ended up revising the estimate twice to completely satisfy our computer upgrade needs. He added true value to his service as he was willing to perform the upgrade in the evening when we were closed to minimize our down time as we are a paperless business and rely 100% on our computers. Carmine stepped up and took care of those problems as well, even though that was not his responsibility. He always responds quickly to any issue that occurs. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
I HAVE WORKED WITH CARMINE FOR MANY YEARS. HE HAS DONE EVERYTHING FROM NETWORK SERVER INSTALLATION TO PROGRAM TROUBLESHOOTING. HIS QUALITY OF WORK AND KNOWLEDGE ARE OUTSTANDING. YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON CARMINE TO WORK HARD FOR YOU.
Carmine makes you feel that you are his first concern if you have a Server down or you have a small printing question. We have been with Carmine for 16 years and have only received quality service.
Thank you Carmine. Will recommend you from the rooftops.
12 years in business and I have been there and done that with other IT / Computer biz, and finally found one that listens, asks questions, and comes up with a plan.
If you are having issues or just want to see if there are options for and avenues of improvement for your computer / networking needs, checkout Underdog Computer and Network Support LLC.
There are some others that are good, but I cannot express the difference enough – they actually get it! Every business IS different with different needs and processes, and they take the time to find what is best for you instead of what they think is best for you!
Thank you, Carmine J. Corridore, for allowing me to have a stress free vacation this year! I look forward to working with you in the near future for some serious upgrades!
