Ransomware - top threat for infection of IT systems

The value of all data in a company is immeasurably. Ransomware attacks takes advantage of this.

Ransomware like WannaCry, Petya or NotPetya is a special form of malware that infects computers and systems and leads to complete system failures. In order to regain power over the data, companies and organizations are often willing to pay large sums of money – which are demanded by the attackers. Therefore, cybercriminals have a huge effect on computer systems. Once a computer is affected, the ransomware spreads quickly to the entire network – which makes the damage even greater.

The most common ways that a malware can reach an endpoint device are the following:

  • Spam emails
  • Infected removable drives
  • Bundled with other software
  • Hacked or compromised websites
  • Other malware

Malwares can also reach the internal network via uploads (or injections) in one of your websites.

Your Challanges

Ransomware is one of the horror scenarios that exists in cybersecurity. Therefore, protection against ransomware poses major challenges, especially for IT managers. If you want to protect your data and pay ransom in the future or hope for an effective decryption tool, it is imperative to face up to these challenges. They mainly range from choosing the right security solution to providing regular data protection. It includes the maintenance of implemented IT solutions as well as keeping them up-to-date. Being in charge of that means keeping a general overview over all processes and thus reducing the likelihood of a ransomware attack. If you take up the challenge and protect yourself extensively against ransomware, you benefit from reducing the possibility of being a target.

Benefits of our solutions

  • Protect your enterprise devices thoroughly with a secure browser solution providing a shielded virtualized browser that may be used to access external Internet websites.
  • Protect your websites from becoming an entry point for malware by using a web application firewall.
  • Leverage the IP reputation feed (integrated from Webroot) that lets you reject any request coming from the TOR network, often used to anonymize the WannaCrypt attack.
  • Avoid basic upload of infected files by having all uploaded files analyzed by your enterprise anti-virus engine (using the ICAP protocol from the WAF)
  • Schedule scans through a vulnerability manager in order to check that all assets (desktops and servers) are patched.
