Ransomware, a type of malware, is top-of-mind for all organizations today as attacks become more sophisticated and its impact increasingly detrimental. When infected with ransomware, organizations lose access to their systems and/or data and the cybercriminals demand a ransom in exchange for restoring access.
One in four companies worldwide pay the ransom to regain access to their files. However, paying up does not always pay off. The likelihood of getting all your data back after paying is slim. In 2021, only 8% of companies that paid recovered all their encrypted files, according to SonicWall’s Cyber Threat Report. To stop ransomware attacks, collectively we need to cut off the cybercriminal’s source of income – that means not paying the ransom and understanding the alternative steps to take to prevent and respond to a ransomware attack.
Ransomware prevention and knowledge must stay at the forefront of organizations’ security efforts. Since hackers continuously become more sophisticated in their ways to encrypt data and develop new ransomware, we continually monitor those developments.
Don’t let ransomware make your organization a victim. With Raptor Firewalls, you’ll have an end-to-end solution that improves threat and risk mitigation across all endpoints and applications. You will always have recovery readiness and greater confidence in your data backup, recovery and compliance.
Raptor Firewalls security frameworks are based on Zero Trust principles. The underlying philosophy for zero trust is, “Never assume trust, but continuously validate trust.” Zero Trust ensures access is continuously validated using various multi-authentication, and segmentation techniques.
