Ransomware Protection

To protect from the devastating consequences of ransomware, it is vital that we establish a strong defense against this malicious software.

The cost and specifics of addressing Ransomware attacks are: 

  • Dealing with a ransomware attack typically incurs a cost ranging from $100,000 to ten million dollars. 
  • Out of seven companies that choose to pay the ransom, only one successfully retrieves their data. 
  • On average, it takes 22 days (about 3 weeks) to fully recover operations following a ransomware attack. 
  • These breaches can lead to class-action lawsuits. 
  • Reputational damage to the company will occur. 
  • A company's ransom is usually 3% of its income.

Many people often wonder about the nature of Ransomware: its origins, how it infiltrates systems, and most importantly, how to effectively shield against it.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a dangerous type of malware that is designed to seize control of your computer and hold your valuable files hostage. The attacker encrypts your files or limits your access to them, demanding a ransom to be paid to regain control over your precious data.

There are several common methods through which ransomware can infiltrate your system, such as: 

  • Browsing websites that are unsafe, suspicious, or fake. 
  • Opening unexpected file attachments from unknown sources. 
  • clicking on malicious links found in emails, social media posts, or instant messages, users are exposing themselves to potential harm and security threats.

Ransomware poses a constant threat, targeting various technological platforms, including personal computers, corporate networks, and government servers. It is crucial to safeguard your network against this ongoing menace.

It blocks incoming and outgoing internet traffic to risky domains. Many organizations rely on vulnerable external servers for their DNS requests, which can be attacked or compromised. 
  • Patch management is essential for system security and stability as it fixes vulnerabilities and bugs, reducing the risk of breaches. 
  • Vulnerability scanning, which identifies weaknesses in computer systems, networks, and applications, helps organizations proactively address security issues and protect sensitive information before they are exploited by hackers. 
  • Penetration testing and breach attack simulations improve network security by detecting and addressing weaknesses before real attacks occur. 
  • Produce disaster recovery plans, not only for a ransomware attack, but also for other unexpected catastrophes. This package includes comprehensive testing, thorough documentation, and well-defined procedures. 
  • Implementation of cybersecurity insurance protects against expenses from cyberattacks like legal, fraud, and e-data costs. It provides peace of mind and enables Swift response to breaches. 
  • Next Gen Firewall, to safeguard your front door against potential harm, we utilize state-of-the-art firewalls that efficaciously prevent unauthorized entry into your network.
