We are increasingly surrounded by artificial intelligence (AI). Autonomous driving or automatic facial recognition are just two popular examples of how AI is changing our everyday lives. IT security is also on the verge of upheaval, as AI has enormous potential for defending against cyber attacks. The attackers do not rest and use AI to optimise their attacks. Despite all the hype, however, it is often overlooked that users today can already benefit from conventional functionalities that are on a par with AI-supported technologies. Read more
Since Microsoft has already discontinued support for Outlook 2007 in October 2017, we now announce the discontinuation of support for Outlook 2007 for the NoSpamProxy Outlook add-in as of June 30, 2019. If you are still using the Outlok add-in with Outlook 2007, we recommend that you upgrade to a current version of Office or Outlook (at least Outlook 2010) due to the security risks associated with Office 2007.
The new NoSpamProxy version offers numerous enhancements and convenience functions for administrators and users. The sophisticated URL Safeguard enables the rewriting of URLs in incoming emails and checks the URL at the time the user clicks on it to see if there are any negative estimates for the URL. In Version 13, the optional Sandbox Service provides an additional level of email security. The near- comprehensive support of the S/MIME 4.0 standard, which Net at Work is the first manufacturer worldwide to offer, as well as a multitude of improvements that further increase the security of email communication round off the new version.
Digital transformation is the shift towards modern workplaces that respond to technological progress and the realities of people’s lives. However, this shift to cloud-based work should not be at the expense of security or data protection – especially in view of the fact that emails are still the most important gateway for cyber attacks. What can Office 365 do to secure email traffic and protect your business from spam and malware?
Criminals have recently launched a wave of email attacks targeting industrial AutoCAD files. The focus is on companies in the renewable energy and automotive sectors. Industrial espionage thus reaches an unprecedented scale.
Malware endangers computers, systems, IT infrastructures, and entire companies. The aim of these attacks, which are carried out using malware, is to capture data, documents and passwords. In most cases, the criminals want to enrich themselves with the money of their victims. The financial losses for private individuals or companies can be serious: Financial damages, including insolvency, can be caused by malware if action is not taken in time.
With the last Microsoft patchday on September 12th, a security update for the .NET framework was released, which closes a critical vulnerability. To exploit the vulnerability, the victim must open a document specially prepared by the attacker. Even if there is no direct danger for NoSpamProxy customers, we recommend installing the update. Further information and the download links can be found here.
The new NoSpamProxy 12.3 already offers security against EFAIL even for communication partners with a weak infrastructure. Due to the far-reaching support of the new S/MIME 4.0 standard and Authenticated Encryption, many EFAIL-like attack methods are additionally neutralised. Numerous other improvements and new features ensure increased email security and increased resilience against the weaknesses of others. In our press release you can learn more about version 12.3 of NoSpamProxy, which Net at Work will present at the security fair it-sa from October 9 – 11, 2018 in Nuremberg.
