In July 2021, the world faced one of the largest ransomware attacks in history.  Every company affected had one thing in common. Their IT infrastructure was managed with network management and remote control software developed by U.S. technology firm, Kaseya.  Hackers exploited over 1,500 businesses by leveraging zero-day exploits in Kaseya’s software used by cybersecurity, giving them full access to all of the devices managed by these firms.

Cybersecurity expert and founder of ReachOut Technology, Rick Jordan, says this was completely avoidable, and he’s on a mission to prevent it from happening again.

“Cybersecurity is difficult and expensive because it requires a large team of highly skilled and highly specialized technicians. The average IT firm simply cannot afford the staff needed to do it right,” he explains.

Peter Bookman, serial entrepreneur and cybersecurity expert, agrees.

He says, “Many companies with employees working from home through VPN connections believed they were safe. While many VPN connections are secure, a personal device may contain malware that now travels to the company, ironically, through the secure VPN. Or worse still, if the VPN makes a permanent connection to the family network, any internet-connected device on the family network is now able to access the company server as well.”
