During 2020, we witnessed a large increase in #ransomwareattacks. What is really interesting is the fact that 36.8% of all ransomware attacks are targeted at companies with less than 100 employees. According to the latest trends, companies that offer professional services, especially law firms and companies that offer financial services, are the most interesting targets for hackers. The reason is simple, such companies do not have their own internal IT team, they have a simple infrastructure and not so complex and well-maintained access controls. Also, these companies do not consider themselves prime targets for ransomware, and are not taking the steps needed to keep themselves safe, making them an ideal target.
Another interesting fact is that the newer versions of ransomware (e.g. Mamba ransomware) do not actually use any malicious software. So how do you prevent such types of attacks? What technology should you use to adequately protect your customers? Do standard #antivirussoftware products offer enough protection or should you use more advanced solutions? Solutions that can help you identify, stop, and react to threats that have bypassed other defenses? Answers to all these questions and more you can find in our webinar.
