Ransomware Protection is a must!
Many small businesses may believe they aren’t at risk of Ransomware infection, but Ransomware is designed to attack computers on any network, regardless of business size. Newer versions are even made to attack several systems on the same network to cause serious damage to any unprepared businesses. Therefore, Ransomware Protection should be important to everyone.
The best Cyber Security
You need cyber security that can defend you from Ransomware infections and a rock-solid plan to recover from disasters quickly and efficiently. Astria IT Solutions provides your business with the best Ransomware protection available.
Ransomware is unique among cybercrime because in order for the attack to be successful, it requires the victim to become a willing accomplice after the fact.
What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware that infects a computer and locks away photos, documents, and other files using heavy encryption, and demands the victim pay a ransom to get access to them. Some Ransomware variants even try to force you to act quickly and irrationally, threatening to start deleting your precious files if you do not pay within a few hours.
Should I Pay the Ransom?
Even if you pay the ransom, there is no guarantee that you will be able to access your files afterward. Symantec’s research during 2016 found that only 47% of victims that paid the ransom actually got their files back. The “WannaCry” Ransomware outbreak in the summer of 2017 was another case where thousands of people payed the ransom, only to find they could not unlock their files. While paying the ransom may seem tempting, the truth is that you have less than a 50% chance to get your files back.
Where does ransomware come from?
Ransomware can com from a number of sources but is most often spread by tricking people to click links or download files that they shouldn’t. This could be in cleverly disguised emails, ads, or even web pages. Email is one of the most common sources, where criminals often design the message to look like it came from a person or business the victim knows and trusts. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize threats.
