The latest announcement aims to respond to the increased demand for effective technology optimization solutions. With strategic virtualization solutions, businesses across sectors can improve their IT infrastructure while reducing the physical space needed to house hardware, lowering their energy costs, and offering staff the ability to access business IT systems from anywhere.

 

We are offering capabilities that enable you to separate your IT resources from your in-house environment, explained a spokesperson for the company. That means you can actually do more with less, because your technology will be delivered to you via the Internet, instead of taking over your office.


By virtualizing your in-house technology, you’ll be able to access more IT, more memory and more software than is physically installed in your office, because it’s all hosted by IT Management Solutions offsite. That means you no longer have a single point of failure with everything taking up space in your office. IT Management Solutions will take care of your most important IT assets for you, they added.

The company’s new virtualization solutions allow businesses to benefit from improved performance without compromising on accessibility and with massive reductions in hardware maintenance and energy costs.

Companies can get access to advanced technologies without having to install additional equipment, and all software can be easily accessed remotely. In light of the current COVID-19 mitigation policies, this allows businesses to implement work-from-home or telecommuting programs.

To assist businesses in transitioning to telecommuting, IT Management Solutions has created a free guide on how to set up a work-from-home remote access system. Finally, with optimized technology storage and management solutions, the risk of cyber crime is also substantially reduced.

With the latest announcement, the company continues to expand its cutting-edge IT solutions to meet the diverse needs of businesses throughout New England.

IT Management Solutions has more than a decade of experience serving businesses in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine. The company has established a strong reputation for professionalism and service quality, as reflected in its flawless 5-star rating out of more than 110 Google reviews.

A satisfied client said: I have been working directly with Pedro and his team at IT Management Solutions for over a year and a half now. The attention to detail and level of customer service provided is second to none. Their broad knowledge of IT infrastructure, data security and multi-vendor platforms continues to assist our company’s expansion domestically and throughout Latin America. I would highly recommend ITMS.

GoodAccess Offers Protection Against Online Threats With its Built-in Threat Blocker Feature

GoodAccess | March 09, 2022

GoodAccess, an anytime-anywhere zero-trust remote access company, has added the Threat Blocker feature to its platform. Threat Blocker enables businesses to provide network security on the public internet and protect remote employees from dangerous domains, phishing attempts, malware and network attacks. Threat Blocker is a native feature of the GoodAccess platform and is automatically enabled for all customers with no additional setup required. It uses several threat intelligence feeds to identify and block connections with malicious domains in real-time (so-called DNS filtering). The feeds are constantly updated with the latest information on malicious domains, so businesses can be confident that their employees are protected from the newest threats. Threat Blocker is an important addition to the security features of our platform. When phishing, ransomware, and other online adversary techniques are still at large, GoodAccess Threat Blocker will help businesses to elevate their security posture against them and reduce the attack surface introduced by remote work." Artur Kane, CMO at GoodAccess For monitoring and compliance reasons, employees' access to harmful websites and content is tracked and logged. Also, GoodAccess users can define their custom domain blacklists (denylists) to strengthen their security controls. The new feature helps businesses to: prevent employees from accessing malicious websites and keep their data safe and secure, block malware before infiltrating business network and launching larger attacks (advanced persistent threats, APT), detect and block connections with C&C botnet networks, prevent ransomware attacks to keep data safe and systems up and running, prevent unauthorized access to the business network as a result of successful phishing and identity theft, reduce the risk of sensitive business data exposure. GoodAcces cloud VPN with zero-trust network access controls streamlines the way organizations handle remote networking and mitigates security risks introduced by distributed workforce, constant mobility and decentralized IT. Since 2020, GoodAccess has earned the trust of more than 1000 business customers from 120 countries worldwide.

VMWARE

CISA recommends VMware, F5 patches. Liquidity mining fraud. Strapi issues patched. TDI clarifies data incident.

CISA | May 20, 2022

VMware yesterday addressed issues in several of its products: VMware Workspace ONE Access (Access), VMware Identity Manager (vIDM), VMware vRealize Automation (vRA), VMware Cloud Foundation, and vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager. That these are more significant than the ordinary run of patches may be seen by the way the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has discussed them. Alert (AA22-138B), "Threat Actors Chaining Unpatched VMware Vulnerabilities for Full System Control" warns that "malicious cyber actors, likely advanced persistent threat (APT) actors, are exploiting CVE-2022-22954 and CVE-2022-22960 separately and in combination." The Alert adds, "CISA expects malicious cyber actors to quickly develop a capability to exploit newly released vulnerabilities CVE-2022-22972 and CVE-2022-22973 in the same impacted VMware products. In response, CISA has released, Emergency Directive (ED) 22-03 Mitigate VMware Vulnerabilities, which requires emergency action from Federal Civilian Executive Branch agencies to either immediately implement the updates in VMware Security Advisory VMSA-2022-0014 or remove the affected software from their network until the updates can be applied." US Federal civilian agencies have until next Monday to identify and remediate the issues, and they're required to report completion no later than Tuesday. Fraudulent liquidity mining. Sophos describes the way the threat of fraudulent liquidity mining is shaping up in decentralized finance systems. "Legitimate liquidity mining exists to make it possible for decentralized finance (DeFi) networks to automatically process digital currency trades," Sophos explains, and criminals are using social engineering to abuse such systems to defraud cryptocurrency investors of their holdings. More loosely regulated than conventional cryptocurrency exchanges, which use market makers and seek to ensure that sufficient reserves are on hand to back trades, DeFi exchanges use Automated Market Makers (AMMs). Sophos explains that "Smart contracts built into the DeFi network have to rapidly determine the relative value of the currencies being exchanged and execute the trade. Since there is no centralized pool of crypto for these distributed exchanges to pull from to complete trades, they rely on crowdsourcing to provide the pool of cryptocurrency capital required to complete a trade—a liquidity pool." Liquidity pool tokens, ("LP tokens") are used to represent the portion of the liquidity pool an investor contributed. But unethical DeFi operators can cancel the tokens (or simply not create a pool to back them in the first place), and this, Sophos observes, offers "ample opportunity for digital Ponzi schemes, fraudulent tokens, and flat-out theft." CMS vulnerabilities disclosed and patched. The Synopsys Cybersecurity Research Center (CyRC) has identified two vulnerabilities in Strapi. Strapi is an open-source headless content management system (CMS) Javascript software that enables developers to quickly design and build content-rich APIs. Both vulnerabilities involve authenticated users with access to the Strapi admin panel having access to private and sensitive data, such as email and password reset tokens. The first vulnerability allows for the authenticated user to view private and sensitive data for other admin panel users that have a relationship with content accessible to the authenticated user. The second vulnerability allows for the authenticated user to view private and sensitive data for API users if content types accessible to the authenticated user contains relationships to API users. The vulnerabilities are fixed in newer, updated versions of Strapi, and Synopsys has commended Strapi for its quick response to the discovery. Texas Department of Insurance clarifies facts surrounding its data incident. The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) has sent around a fact sheet that clarifies a data incident the agency sustained earlier this year: "In January 2022, TDI found the issue was due to a programming code error that allowed internet access to a protected area of the application. TDI promptly disconnected the web application from the internet. After correcting the programming code, TDI placed the web application back online. The forensic investigation could not conclusively rule out that certain information on the web application was accessed outside of TDI. This does not mean all the information was viewed by people outside TDI. Because we couldn't rule out access, we took steps to notify those who may have been affected." While data could have been accessed by unauthorized personnel, TDI has investigated and found that, "There is no evidence to date that there was a misuse of information."
