We are seeing a significant increase in demand for our StripIT solution that neutralises active content borne malware in Word and Excel documents.
A recent article in ZDNet discusses this very issue:Title: Australian organisations suffer ransomware because they make basic mistakes
Excerpt: “It’s a surprising answer, and scary. We know that ransomware attacks are on the rise, “by an order of magnitude” in the last 12 months, according to Scott Brown, senior tech with CERT Australia (CERT-AU). So what’s the most common attack vector?
“Number one is still macros in [Microsoft] Word and Excel documents attached to emails,” Brown told the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Conference in Canberra on Wednesday.”
StripIT is available as both an SMTP gateway product – for protecting documents attached to emails, and as a stand-alone file command utility, which can be configured to scan files from such sources as website uploads etc.
