We've received reports that customers are receiving calls from a company claiming to be Apple informing them that their Apple ID has been compromised. The culprits are calling random numbers, mainly in the United States. If you follow their prompts to "secure your account" you'll be transferred to a call center in India who will then try to get as much personal information from you as possible; they will try to get your credit card information to charge a fee to secure the compromised account.
Apple WILL NOT call you, even if your account is compromised. If you get the call don't worry about changing your password, they are randomly calling anyone they can, whether they have an Apple ID or not.
Cloud computing has been around for quite a while but it took some years before it became part of everyday language. Starting out it might have seemed too esoteric for many companies, but it's hard to imagine our current technological world without the cloud.
On average, it takes 100 days for ransomware or malware to be detected with traditional network security systems due to their inadequate visibility and limited ability to analyze advanced threats. A lot of damage can occur over 100 days. Due to the advanced programming of EDR, the 100-day average of detecting ransomware or malware drastically drops to just a matter of hours or even minutes.
