Ransomware hitting home!

There was a serious rise in Ransomware attacks between 2015-2016, and it’s been increasing since.  Not just in number, but by impact.  These attacks operate by locking down systems and rendering them useless, while compromising server data until the ransom is paid.  The sophistication in ransomware attacks (and the fact that they have become virtually untraceable) has recently caused the FBI to advise that ransomware victims to just pay the ransom!  This is one of those areas where we have seen first hand that companies not protecting themselves up front are getting burned in a big way.  These are dangerous times with everything connected worldwide…. talk to us about how your company can prevent, mitigate, and even recover quickly from an attack.
