Be Free from Ransomware

You would have to live under a rock to be unaware of all the recent news reports regarding the ransomware attacks that are occurring, more and more frequently.  There have been more than 40 publicly reported ransomware attacks against food companies, alone, since May 2020, according to Allan Liska, senior security architect at the cybersecurity analytics firm Recorded Future. Moreover, this affects trucking companies, whether by direct or indirect attack.  Look at what happened when JBS SA, the world’s largest meat producer and Colonial Pipeline Co., operator of the biggest U.S. gasoline pipeline, when both were hit earlier this year by ransomware. In addition, most recently, Kaseya, an information technology firm.   (More on that, below).  Trucks were parked because production had stopped.  Parked trucks means loss of revenue!

That is why it is very important to us, at TMS Digital, to know that the Transportation Software we provide our customers is in a safe and protected environment.  Our software apps, whether you run it as a stand-alone app or as a full service server system, are hosted on secure servers.   We can assure you our data servers, with over 95% success rate, are ransomware, malware and virus free.

 

Our parent company, Protected Harbor defines ransomware as

“Ransomware is a type of malware which interferes with a system or server by limiting or entirely cutting off access to files until a ransom is paid. The attacker demands a ransom from the victim to restore access to the data upon payment. Ransomware has become one of the most lucrative ways for hackers to target companies and organizations.” For more information regarding our services, click here.

 

The most recent attack on a data provider affected between 800 – 1500 businesses around the world.

Quoted from Reuters:
“WASHINGTON, July 5 (Reuters) – Between 800 and 1,500 businesses around the world have been affected by a ransomware attack centered on U.S. information technology firm Kaseya, its chief executive said on Monday.

Fred Voccola, the Florida-based company’s CEO, said in an interview that it was hard to estimate the precise impact of Friday’s attack because those hit were mainly customers of Kaseya’s customers.

Kaseya is a company which provides software tools to IT outsourcing shops: companies that typically handle back-office work for companies too small or modestly resourced to have their own tech departments.

One of those tools was subverted on Friday, allowing the hackers to paralyze hundreds of businesses on all five continents. Although most of those affected have been small concerns – like dentists’ offices or accountants – the disruption has been felt more keenly in Sweden, where hundreds of supermarkets had to close because their cash registers were inoperative, or New Zealand, where schools and kindergartens were knocked offline.  To read more, click here.”

In addition, to being safe and secure, our trucking dispatch software is one of the best dispatching apps on the market today!  With over 35 years’ experience, this program has been finely honed into trucking software that is easy to use, efficient and absolutely loaded with options to be a perfect custom fit for your trucking business.  Your freight dispatchers will enjoy having load browser screens that display the information that they need to see at a glance.

With loads (pun intended) of interface options, all sorts of custom features like browser screens, button and menu options, along with custom programming, should you need it, you will find it hard to find a better dispatch system.  And, along with our secure hosting, the Dispatch software, itself, offers security features to keep prying eyes out of options they don’t need to be in.

Besides all the bells and whistles that are included in the program, it handles truckload, LTL, Split loads, Cross-docked loads, Deadheads and Brokerage.  For intermodal carriers, just a few flips of switches in the configuration settings and you have additional screens for your containers, chassis and their owners.
