Ransomware Isn’t Over Yet – pop-up malicious attacks

We can’t deny the fact that in the current digital age, a large audience are microchip driven and computer dependent. By the time people knew how to operate computer and related stuff, the market started to fill with new gadgets, devices and applications. But in a rush to feature new technology before the competitors did, enterprises often underestimated many crucial components, which left several inherent flaws in the applications.

Just rewind and think of the many cyber attacks we’ve witnessed and known of over the course of time. One of the many serious threat for the online world is ransomware, which is growing potentially powerful and severe. From a disturbing pop-up to a more complex malicious attack that encrypts data, ransomware has evolved significantly. Let’s discuss about ransomware and what businesses are doing and should do in order to prevent the malicious threat.

Business Leaders

Ransomware is a serious threat to business as the attack could damage the financial pillars of any organization. So how do C-suite or data center managers deal with ransomware attacks? Here we have discussed about them in detail.

While most organization ensure to implement security measures to combat malicious attacks, very few understand what security components actually needs to be deployed. Applying security elements will not alone satisfy the requirements, but organizations need to ensure that keep a check on the incoming and outgoing traffic as well to detect any suspicious activity.

There are different types of business leaders with distinct perspective on ransomware and business data security. Many of them are prepared to face the challenge effectively; many of them play the reactionary role; many of them are also ignorant to the fact that something bad would happen to their business through online networks. And when the worst happens, all of these leaders tend to play their part to keep their boundaries safe and secured. However, there are some common steps that organizations do to handle the aftermath of an attack.

The easiest step to protecting your data is using backup solutions, cloud solution would be ideal way to go to. Should your systems be infected, you can restore all your data before the attack gets severe and causes more damage. But don’t think that storing data on cloud servers could spare you from the malicious activities. In fact, if files automatically upload to the cloud servers, there are chances that the infected files may be uploaded as well. So ensure to keep certain type of file history enabled in your backup solution that will let you go back to a previous backup created if necessary.

Apart from backup services, there are plenty of other robust security options such as firewall, spam and virus filtering and many more. But sometimes, if the infection is too strong, you’ll have to end up paying the ransom amount demanded by the attacker. So better not to get into such circumstances. Adopt highly advanced business data security solution that offer real-time detention to prevent severe conditions.
