Cybersecurity Services in Kent for Companies Large and Small

In May 2021 a group of Russian hackers who call themselves “Darkside” gained access to the computer systems of the Colonial Pipeline company in the US, shutting down the company’s main pipeline that carries nearly half the petrol consumed on the US east coast. The shutdown caused massive disruption to the American economy and only ended when Colonial paid millions in ransom to the group.

 

This unprecedented attack on critical infrastructure should be a wakeup call for all companies that depend on the integrity of their computer system to deliver their services. The threat is real. It is potentially devastating. And it is coming for the unprepared. Proximitum provides expert cybersecurity services in Kent that can protect your business from ransomware attacks and other forms of malicious behaviour.

Vital Cybersecurity Services in Kent

Woe unto those who underestimate the ability of today’s hackers. Many of these individuals are extremely knowledgeable and many have state sponsors. It is not hyperbole to say that they pose an existential threat to businesses large and small that increasingly depend on their computer systems for communication, mechanical operations, inventory control, online sales, the protection of customer data and much more.

 

If you are to prevent these nefarious players from wreaking havoc with your Kent business you need proven cybersecurity services on your side 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You need the professionals at Proximitum.

Whether the threat to your company is ransomware, (as was the case in the Colonial Pipeline hack), cryptocurrency mining, (where your servers are covertly hijacked to engage in harvesting Bitcoin and the like), or DNS tunnelling, (used to steal user data and other information), Proximitum have you covered.

Ransomware is the main target of the criminal business model, installing malware on devices and storing valuable data, files, or information as ransom. Ransomware has low entry barriers and high-income potential, making it the biggest threat facing businesses today.

Malicious Cryptocurrency Mining

If an attacker finds a way to inject JavaScript into a website so that they can use the computing power of the website visitor’s device to mine cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, a browser-based cryptocurrency mining attack is possible. The entire user device is taken over, and their CPU is used for higher-level currency mining.

DNS Tunnelling

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a protocol that converts user-friendly URLs into machine-readable IP addresses. Cybercriminals know that DNS is widespread, trustworthy, and often undetectable. Therefore, DNS tunnelling is used as a protocol to carry malware and other data through a client-server model.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

Every day the world’s vast computer systems become more integrated. Every day hackers become more sophisticated and dangerous. And every day the threat they pose comes closer to your front door.
