(MURPHY):
"
SINCE MAY, WE'VE SEEN TWO MAJOR CYBERATTACKS DISRUPT HUNDREDS-OF-THOUSANDS OF SYSTEMS, WORLDWIDE.  THIS SHOULD SERVE AS A DAUNTING REMINDER, TO EVERYONE, THAT RANSOMWARE HAS BECOME TODAY'S MOST-PERVASIVE AND -COSTLY CYBERTHREAT.  AND, FOR GOOD REASON:  IT'S EFFECTIVE.  PROPER DEFENSE REQUIRES THE MOST-ADVANCED ENDPOINT-PROTECTION--USING CUTTING-EDGE MACHINE-LEARNING, AND REAL-TIME BEHAVIOR-ANALYSIS, TO PROTECT AGAINST EMERGING THREATS--AS WELL AS ZERO-DAY ATTACKS AND OTHER MALWARE.  PATCH-MANAGEMENT IS A CRITICAL ELEMENT--HELPING TO ELIMINATE VULNERABILITIES THAT CYBERCRIMINALS ARE VERY ADEPT AT EXPLOITING.  THE MOST-RECENT ATTACKS SPREAD SO FAR AND WIDE BECAUSE THEY GOT INTO MACHINES THAT HADN'T BEEN PROPERLY UPDATED OR PATCHED.  FREE TOOLS AND BASIC ANTIVIRUS-PRODUCTS JUST AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH, ANYMORE.  VISIT 'VIPRE'-DOT-COM [LIKE 'VIPER']--THATíS 'V-I-P-R-E'-DOT-COM--TODAY."
