How safe are you from ransomware?
Traditional Antivirus is not enough!
Currently the most prevalent money-making scheme employed by cyber-criminals, the rise of ransomware has been astonishing. According to a report by the Cyber Threat Alliance, throughout the whole of 2015 a total of $325 Million was taken using ransomware.
However the US FBI reports that ransomware has taken $209 Million in just the first three months of 2016, more than eight times the total for 2015. At this rate ransomware is expected to yield close to $1 Billion by the end of the year unless individuals and organisations improve both their defences and security awareness.
Ransomware quick facts
• Ransomware is type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system, files or system functions until a sum of mone (the ransom) is paid by the victim.
• Ransomware is spread by Email (spam, phishing), through compromised websites and other malware (blended attacks).
• Effective protection from ransomware requires a combination of next generation antivirus, an advanced threat protection platform and security awareness.
