Ransomware – Are you prepared?

June 23, 2017

Everyone is talking about ransomware, but are you prepared or protected?

 

Ransomware is a malicious software that blocks access or encrypts your data until you pay the ransom.

 

There are two areas to focus on. Protection and preparedness. How do you protect against ransomware? Nothing is 100%, but there are now antiviruses and antimalware available that can help protect against ransomware. Sophos has a solution called Intercept X. Sophos Intercept X features CryptoGuard, which prevents the malicious spontaneous encryption of data by ransomware.

 

What if you get attacked by ransomware? Do you pay to get your data back? Do you have a solution that can restore your data? How long will it take to recover? Datto has a “one stop shop” for your backup and disaster recovery. It can be setup to continuously backup your data and in a few minutes, you can recover from an attack, human error, or malicious activity.
