March Is For Malware Mitigation

March 8, 2017 Company News, Security

ABS Technology was pleased to host clients today at the boutique hotel, Quirk, in Richmond VA for a deep dive into malware prevention and mitigation. Clients from around the Richmond region joined us as ABS’ Security expert, Dave West, and ABS’ Data Center expert, Rob Cox, presented the latest details about malware and best practices for mitigation.

For example, did you know that in 2016, cyberextortion losses cost individuals and businesses $1Billion? Dave West dove into some of the details behind this statistic and others as well including ways to prevent and react to malware. Rob Cox dove into more specifics on how organizations can protect and recover via microsegmentation, virtualization, and data protection for application workloads.

Also, in true ABS spirit, for every attendee at today’s event, ABS will be donating $10 to the American Red Cross in honor of Red Cross Month!
