New strains of ransomware and other malware threats are on the rise, and using more advanced social engineering techniques to facilitate their spread. With more employees transitioning to working remotely, the risks and exposure to ransomware are higher than they have ever been. Ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts and holds your critical business and customer data hostage, and you are unable to access your data until you pay the demanded “ransom” to obtain the encryption key needed to unlock your data. Even if the ransom is paid, there is no guarantee that the attacker will provide you with the decryption key, which can permanently shut down your business. With the growing frequency and sophistication of ransomware threats, Security Operations leaders are acutely aware of the consequences of excessive downtime, data loss and business disruption due to ransomware attacks.
