Everyone knows we need firewalls but, as any good network admin will tell you, owning a firewall isn’t the same as getting the most out of your firewall.
Your security posture has to adapt continuously to deal with the ever-shifting threat landscape and the emergence of new threats like advanced, worm-like ransomware.
That’s why we’ve developed a new guide – Firewall Best Practices to Block Ransomware – to help you optimize your firewall setup and meet the evolving ransomware threat. In it you’ll find a set of easy to read and easy to implement best practices. It helps you understand how a ransomware attack like WannaCry or NotPetya happens and what you can do to avoid being a victim of the next big outbreak.
This guide offers a bit of historical perspective, explaining how recent major attacks spread as fast and as effectively as they did, what exploits were used, what vulnerabilities were exploited, and in the end, what mistakes were made that could have saved victims from the attacks.
It also reviews methods for blocking and preventing future attacks, such as exploits and file-based ransomware payloads, and what technologies and solutions an ideal firewall offers to combat them.
You’ll find guidance for: ensuring you have the right protection, reducing your attack surface, securing ports, using sandboxing to protect against suspicious messages, and minimizing lateral movement within your network.
You’ll also learn about the benefits of isolating infected systems automatically, sharing threat intelligence between endpoints and firewalls, and see how XG Firewall stacks up against the other options out there against ransomware attacks.
