I was discussing measures to guard against ransomware with an OGI support member.
Hosts of virtual machines are not safe.
They had a client a few weeks ago, where the ransomware managed to get into the hosts (plural) and it destroyed the vhdx files (what a virtual machine is stored in). In a lot of instances, with limited access, more ports closed on the host and so forth, you would be inclined to believe that they are safe and only the virtual, more "public access" machines would be affected to different degrees.
I am now looking into making a Linux host, so that backup snapshots of a virtual machine will be safe and can easily be fired up for emergency cases.
I don't use Linked In. Good post.
My colleague had that all the time, would ask OGI support, "How do I do this?" and would receive the answer, "It can't be done." A week later they would go back to OGI with, "This is how you do it."
Now they don't even bother to log tickets with OGI. If OGI cared and had enough staff to put more time into working these things out with my colleague, then they would have an over all better product and better service.
Latest response from OGI:
I don't know why development did half a job of it in the first place and that getting this on their enhancement wishlist is such an uphill battle.
Anyone else want to log a similar request and join the chorus?
Sorry - the above was a more generic prompt for ALL brokers - particularly those who need to review their risk appetite - not aimed at you guys per-se
Ditto for this - and to make sure everyone is aware they can't blame or claim from, their supplier for their own inadequate security analysis and prevention
I feel your pain with the horses - but at least you found the water - that's half the battle
Tbf - I’d be interested in comparing how the competition / alternative OGI solution aka Virtual Cabinet, manages the same situation. That’s the real benchmark / leverage.
If cyber is a concern - or a requirement of your BI - I’d suggest taking a serious look at those security functions in both. Then make your choice.
