Are you protected from Ransomware?
Ransomware continues to plague organizations, with over half of companies surveyed across 26 countries revealing that they were hit by ransomware in the last year*. Such attacks are ever increasing in complexity and are getting more efficient at exploiting network and system vulnerabilities, leaving organizations with a significant clean-up bill: a global average of an eye-watering US$761,106.
One of the most effective methods for protecting against ransomware attacks like Ryuk, Sodinokibi, Maze, and Ragnar Locker is to make use of a properly configured firewall.
Who hackers are targeting?
Who are hackers targeting? The short answer: everyone. In a recent survey, 51% of respondents said they had been hit by ransomware in the last year and it seems that organization size is not a significant factor. Forty-seven percent of the organizations had fewer than 1,000 employees while 53% had more than 1,000. No country, region, or vertical market segment is immune.
