These resources from Threatscape will help you
defend against the next malware attack

The WannaCry ransomware incident has served as a harsh reminder to IT personnel of the prevalence and dangers of malicious software such as ransomware, and of the importance of ensuring that their information security defences and procedures are in line with industry best practices.


Threatscape issued this detailed Technical Advisory to our clients in which we discuss:

Wannacry ransomware


What happened?

Why were certain organisations so badly affected?

What should you do to ensure your systems are not at risk from this - and future ransomware threats?



Customers are also reminded of the following events we have already scheduled and which may be of interest:

SEP 14 Bootcamp – hands-on technical training

Our 2 day training courses for administrators of SEP 14 [Symantec Endpoint Protection 14] are proving very popular and advance booking is highly recommended. Each delegate is provided with a high powered notebook during the course enabling them to complete a number of live lab exercises.

The training is split over two consecutive days allowing you to book to attend just one day or both:

Day One: This starts with a recap of SEP management basics and then looks in detail at what is new in SEP 14 and how users can migrate SEPM servers and clients from SEP 12 to SEP 14.
Day Two: The second day covers more advanced topics such as performance tuning, high availability considerations, configuration of advanced features in SEP, problem troubleshooting.

Patch and Putt – Altiris client management suite

The endpoint management suite from Symantec effortlessly automates tasks such as network inventory, software deployment – and most critically in these days of software vulnerabilities and ransomware attack, it can automate the process of deploying the latest security patches to hundreds or thousands of PCs.

This half day event (with optional golf afterwards) was originally intended to be our annual Altiris user group meeting but with the number of enquiries we’ve had recently about patch management, we’ve opened it up to all those interested in learning more about how to automate endpoint management.
