      Cyber Security Threat landscape

      Threats now go well beyond viruses. Here are some of the more common types of malware :


      Viruses are often attachments in an email that a user opens and then the virus infects the device and often other devices on the network.


      Ransomware encrypts everything on a machine and demands a ransom from the user to decrypt the files. And because ransomware is on the increase, more information, and how to combat it, can be found below.


      Worms infect a machine often without a user interaction. To do this, they access a machine through a weakness in a piece of software or the operating system itself.


      Spyware is installed on a computer to spy on a user’s actions. This means that Spyware monitors all communications on a device such as logging what is being typed or accessing a webcam without the user’s knowledge.


      Trojans are set up to trick users into downloading them. After doing this, they steal data, cause software to crash and launch other attacks from inside the user’s machine.


      When a machine is infected with adware, the user is presented with various unwanted adverts and pop-ups. These blinking across the screen and stopping them from using the machine easily.

      At its most basic level antivirus technology detects and neutralises threats found on devices and servers. As a result, most solutions will, however, contain a range of additional features to help keep users safe.

      With this in mind, Akita offers two main antivirus products to deliver PC, server and wider endpoint protection:

      managed Anti-ransomware


      Sophos is a market leader in cybersecurity solutions. As a Gold Partner, Akita offers a range of Sophos antivirus solutions.

      The most popular solution is Intercept X – a comprehensive solution offering excellent protection against a broad range of attacks and threats. It does this by securing all devices on a network with endpoint protection, server protection and a software firewall that blocks threats from entering the network in the first place. Additionally it includes WiFi protection, email scanning and much more.

      Sophos Intercept X comes in a variety of configurations depending on your organisation’s requirements.

      Business Anti-virus


      Best known for its consumer antivirus solutions, Avast also offers a business-grade antivirus product.

      Avast Business Antivirus provides a good degree of protection for SMEs when budget is a key consideration in the choice of solution. Available for both computers and servers, it actively monitors for viruses and malware infections and attempts to penetrate systems.

      Alongside a comprehensive antivirus solution, Avast contains a range of features to help users stay secure including web filtering, file scanning, CyberCapture threat locker and an email shield.

      Akita can supply and deploy Avast antivirus onto user devices and servers. As well as this, we can also manage licences and renewals, plus perform updates as part of our proactive IT maintenance.

      Managed Anti-ransomware


      Ransomware is an evolving threat and arguably more dangerous to organisations than many other types of malware or viruses.

      Ransomware creates an encrypted copy of all data held on a PC or server, then wipes the original files. After this, organisations are then forced to pay the ransom to unlock the data. And afterwards, there is no guarantee that cybercriminals will unlock your data on payment.

      As entire servers can be infected in minutes, organisations are recommended to adopt an IT cyber security strategy that includes anti-ransomware.

      Akita’s preferred solution is CryptoGuard, included as part of Sophos Intercept X. It uses machine learning to detect activities occurring within devices and servers that indicate signs of a ransomware attack. Afterward, it will then deactivate any suspicious processes in seconds.

      CryptoGuard will even monitor trusted applications and programs for signs of infection – something many other anti-ransomware solutions don’t do.

      Cyber Essentials

      As well as software solutions to combat cyber attacks, we also assist organisations with Cyber Essentials accreditation.

      Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed scheme designed to help organisations of all sizes protect themselves against cyber attacks. The certification assesses IT setups and is designed to prevent the most common types of cyberattacks.

      By achieving Cyber Essentials, organisations can become more aware of common threats and reduce the risk of them becoming a victim to cybercrime tactics. They also become eligle for cyber security insurance and to bid for certain Government tenders.
