Ransomware is a violent and deadly form of attack that each year results in the loss of more than a billion dollars to corporations. Six out of every ten virus payloads were ransomware in 2017, with companies being subjected to this form of attack every 40 seconds, on average.
There are many varieties of ransomware – with the number increasing every day the ingenuity of hackers rises to meet the challenge of a more wary business community. But all forms of ransomware follow the same basic pattern: an employee receives an email containing an attachment. This attachment might look like a document, invoice, or other innocent business communication needing action. When the user clicks on the attachment however, a virus runs that encrypts information on the local computer. The user is then greeted with a dialogue box or window informing them that their information is locked, and they must pay a ransom to regain access to it.
Even though a ransomware attack directly affects only the user that opens it, the entire organization can suffer. The challenge is that ransomware attacks grow more sophisticated as corporations become more aware of the problem. Since ransomware is launched via email, defensive strategies must focus on e-mail security. DuoCircle’s Advanced Threat Defense Suite is an effective barrier to all forms of email-based attack, including ransomware.
