Find out how OVH traps malware and ransomware
Whenever we celebrate innovation and feel happy about the fact that information technology is now accessible to everyone, we tend to forget that this also benefits malicious network users. Launching malware or ransomware has never been so easy despite the progress made by antivirus software and for the past year and a half, OVH has been contributing in its own way to make the web a safer place. The goal is to trick malware so that it will lead us back to its authors and discourage them to use the OVH network. Find out more on this from Frank Denis, security expert with OVH’s Security Operation Center (SOC), a team made up of more than 20 people spread across three continents. Read the article
