Ransomware is a real threat

With the number of devices connected to the Internet ever increasing; so has the threat of viruses and malicious programs and applications. Designed to disrupt by encrypting valuable data; then attempting to extort you by demanding a financial payment to possibly gain access to your data again.

Ransomware is one of the most common types of malicious software that anyone using an Internet connected device will encounter.

Often being embedded into an attachment on an e-mail; or a download link disguised to look like the regular download link of your favourite piece of software or application. Without the user even being aware; ransomware software will begin to encrypt and often being days or even weeks before it’s noticed. All for the purpose of getting you to pay money.

Ransomware Attacks

Not only do we know the importance; but we also have the knowledge and techniques to put in place to achieve the goal of protecting your personal or business data from becoming encrypted due to an unexpected ransomware infection.

Why You Need Protection

As indicated above; ransomware has the potential to shut down entire offices and businesses. It’s always a high risk that your data won’t be able to be decrypted; even if you pay the required ransom amount.

The implementation of ransomware protection is even more critical for businesses dealing in highly sensitive data; or data governed by strict laws. Should this data become accessed by unauthorised parties, corrupted, stolen or permanently modified then it could potentially lead to large fines; or the permanent closure of the business.
