How to Protect your Business from Ransomware this summer.

Mosquitos are not the only bugs you need to worry about this summer…

The team here at Odyssey hopes you are enjoying the sunshine as much as we are.  We also want to make sure your hard work is protected and secure.  As I’m sure you’ve heard, there have been multiple serious global ransomware attacks affecting companies big and small across the US and Europe. Bloomberg and CNN are calling this the biggest ransomware attack we have ever seen, and are warning that this is just the beginning. Please see more details in this blog post.

Below we have outlined what to do to put a ransomware protection plan in place to keep your computers running, no matter what happens.

How to Protect your Business from Ransomware

These are just a few of the steps we can take to protect your home and office:

  • Updating all operating system and application software.
  • Removing any software that could pose a security risk.
  • Installing the most up to date antivirus on your machines.
  • Setting up a “bare metal backup”. If the worst does happen, a bare metal backup can reset your computers and network without having to pay any ransom at all. This is the best insurance you can have against a ransomware attack.

These are just a few of the ways we can protect you and make your life easier.  We have spent time putting together proactive Managed Services and maintenance packages to keep the computers at your home and office running at peak productivity and to maximize the investment you’ve made in your technology.  


Don’t waste any time worrying about threats or lost efficiency.  Call today (406) 992-4093 to get started – let us manage and protect your computers so you can focus on your Life’s Adventure!
