Hackers have a multi-pronged approach to attacking American businesses and agencies. Most attacks are random, usually on your website or in the form of spam / phishing and attacks looking for vulnerabilities. When one is found, it is exploited.
Website & Email attacks include:
- Thousands of WP-Admin logins per hour
- SQL Injections
- Form and Comment spam
- Direct File Inclusions (malware/viruses)
- Denial-of-Service Attacks
- Email Bombing
Meanwhile, your public-facing servers are dealing with the same 'noise' attacks, while dealing with Windows-specific attacks such as Exchange Server exploits from Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS), Eavesdropping, Network Denial-of-Service Attacks, Spoofing, RTP Relays, Spim Attacks, Viruses & Worms, and so on, and so on.
These attacks result in slow networks, websites and email delivery; affecting productivity, increasing IT costs, and in worse cases, ransomware nightmares.
