A major ransomware attack Sunday kicked the majority of Italians off of the internet before administrators were able to restore service.

Italy’s National Cybersecurity Agency, ACN, said the attackers targeted a known vulnerability in VMware’s ESXi servers. VMware encouraged customers to install patches.

If it feels like you’ve heard this story before, that’s because you probably have. In fact, you’re forgiven for thinking this feels like Groundhog Day.

That’s because the vulnerability was first detected almost two years ago, and the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security issued its first security advisory – known as AV21-093 – on February 24, 2021. The Canadian cybersecurity agency issued a second advisory, AV22-689, on December 9, 2022.

Forgive us, but here at STEP Software, we’re optimists, and we believe the dawn of a new year brings all sorts of opportunities for renewal and growth to employers and their employees.

Optimistic doesn’t mean we aren’t realistic, though, and as 2023 dawns all fresh and clean and shiny and new, we also recognize that cybercriminals remain as threatening and dirty as they’ve always been. Actually, even more so.

So, as we’ve been reviewing our own cybersecurity plans for the upcoming year, we wanted to share some recommendations with you so that you can consider incorporating them into your own workflow. Because it’s always a good time to focus on cybersecurity.

Whatever business you’re in, it’s reasonable to assume that software powers your day-to-day operations.

So as the end of year approaches, now is an ideal time to look at all of your software-related assets through a critical lens and ask whether or not you’re getting your money’s worth.

Outsourcing your IT department offers impressive benefits, such as improving productivity, increasing security, and gaining access to the latest technology. However, one of the main advantages of using a managed service provider is that it is an excellent way to save your company money in many ways. Instead of hiring additional IT employees, a managed service provider will take care of all your technical needs in the workplace at a fixed price each month. Ultimately, this will make it easier to stay within a budget, as you will not have to worry about any unexpected expenses.

Here are a few more ways that an IT service provider can save your business money.
