Ransomware is quickly becoming the most dominant threat faced by businesses regardless of their type or size. Organizations are finding their critical data being held hostage.
It's not only important to be able to prevent ransomware attacks, but also be able to recover quickly and in a way that is least likely to impact company operations.
Over the past year, ransomware has proven to be an increasingly lucrative business for cyber criminals and is becoming more prevalent each day. Unfortunately, it appears this threat will grow larger and more complex in the future.
The single most effective tool against ransomware is having regularly updated backups. Data protection schemes vary in complexity and cost but a quality engineered data protection scheme can reduce the time to recovery from days or weeks down to hours.
Dell SonicWALL provides subscription services which continuously scan edge traffic for known threats, provide content filtering as well as intrusion prevention service. These recommended add-on security services help secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, viruses, spyware, worms, Trojans, adware, keyloggers, malicious mobile code (MMC).
Users need to be educated on what the threat is and what a potential threat may look like. Insider threats are still one of the biggest problems in maintaining a secure network. The proliferation of USB flash drives, personal mobile devices as well as social media continue to present challenges to IT security. Keep in mind firewalls and anti-virus are of little use if a privileged user knowingly or unknowingly passes malware onto your network.
