Ransomware is a particularly painful type of malware. Malware is “hostile or intrusive software” that is illegally introduced onto your computer for malicious reasons. When ransomware infects your computer it blocks access to your data until you pay the criminals who are extorting you. It’s an illegal threat to your data.
Ransomware is now the fastest-growing malware threat in history. In 2016, it netted criminals $1 billion in ransom payments, and now it’s spreading even faster. Are you defending your company against the ransomware epidemic yet?
