Original network protocols are starting to age out of usefulness. HTTP is being replaced by HTTPS, people are trying to replace DNS with DNSSEC, and TLS just got its first update in 8 years. Now it's time to update SMB. It's time for Safe-T Secure File Access.
For a certain kind of secure communication, Server Message Block (SMB) is no longer suited for the task. Windows machines use SMB to pass files around a network. Printers, mail servers, and high-priority internal network segments use SMB to provide access to remote users. Although SMB is convenient for Windows and other networks, it’s also convenient for attackers.
No company is too small to be devastated by a ransomware attack. In fact, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are prime targets, and the number--and cost--of such attacks continues to rise.
