TRACKING THE MOST
SIGNIFICANT CYBER THREAT:
RANSOMWARE
Ransomware attacks are more successful than ever and use some of the most sophisticated techniques to target your employees and your data. Learn how to reduce your risk of infections

Here at OpenDNS, we are relentless in the pursuit of one goal:
to help the world connect with confidence on
any device, anywhere, anytime.
In fact, we’re already helping 65 million people around the world do just that, including Fortune 50 companies, small businesses, schools, and hundreds of thousands of homes.
We have never been afraid to do things differently, and that includes our approach to security. The traditional collect and react model cannot keep up with today’s rapidly evolving threats and ingenious attackers. We have developed a new strategy. Utilizing our global network, which sees 2% of the world’s Internet requests, we have engineered a predictive security solution that anticipates and stops malicious activity before it threatens your network. While the rise of the roaming workforce has eroded the traditional network perimeter, Umbrella by OpenDNS has you covered. It works anywhere, across any port, protocol, or app – and because Umbrella is delivered via the cloud, it is lightning-fast and easily scalable.

Customizable filters to protect your most personal data at router level

OpenDNS isn’t a download; it’s a change you can make to your router’s settings so it connects to the internet via OpenDNS’s servers. That means the protection applies to any device on your network, which is useful in today’s hyper-connected homes and businesses.
OpenDNS Home automatically blocks known offenders and offers a range of content filtering options to keep the kids away from filth too. The service is free, and there are full set-up instructions for every kind of device.

Wise Folder Hider

OverviewWHAT IS Wise Folder Hider

Sharing a PC with others? Keep them out of your personal files

Designed for Windows XP onwards, Wise Folder Hider does what the name suggests: it hides things on your PC. The free edition enables you to hide files and folders (both locally and on USB drives) and to password-protect them, although it doesn’t encrypt anything; for that you’ll need the $19.95 Pro version.
If all you need is a way to hide work files from the kids, or the novel you’re working on from the boss, then it’s a good little app, although if you’re truly paranoid you’ll want to invest in the Pro version to scramble the files as well as hiding them.

The hidden files/folders will be safely hidden whether the drive is accessed in another operating system on the same computer or reinstalled on another computer. The only way to access hidden files/folders/USB is to enter your password(s) correctly.

With Wise Folder Hider you will get your private and important data double password protection. This freeware also supports drag and drop, hides files/folders by right-click when Wise Folder Hider is closed. And it can hide your data from a removable device.
