What is Ransomware?

Ransom malware, or ransomware, is a type of malicious software that is used to extort money from individuals, businesses, and all kinds of organisations.

Typically, ransomware will block user access to files and entire systems, and demand ransom payment, often time-limited, before the user can regain access. But ransomware can come in many forms, including Scareware, screen lockers, and encryption ransomware.

Check your network for Malware

How do you get infected by ransomware?

Ransomware can access your device or network by even just one small gap in your security, and it can be spread in a number of different ways, including malicious emails (Malspam or Spear phishing), malicious websites , and malicious online ads (Malvertising). It is also often spread through exploit kits – a set of tools that attackers use to try to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in web browsers and applications.

Ransomware in business

Protecting yourself and your business from ransomware requires a comprehensive security strategy. Best practices include limiting access to sensitive data, implementing multi-factor authentication and password management, training your staff on security best practices, and regularly scanning for viruses and other malicious programs. Additionally, investing in a comprehensive backup solution is key for recovering data quickly if ransomware does occur.

Ransomware detection and prevention

Ransomware detection and prevention can be improved by implementing a comprehensive antivirus solution for endpoint protection. Antivirus software, or endpoint security, can detect and block potentially malicious programs, and many programs also have the ability to automatically quarantine any suspicious files it finds. Cloud-based software solutions now provide automatic updates to protect against emerging malware in real-time. This can help to stop ransomware infections in their tracks.

Keep your software up-to-date

Ensuring that all software, including operating systems, antivirus programs, browser plugins, and applications are regularly updated with the latest security patches and bug fixes is critical to protecting against ransomware.

Back up critical data

Creating regular backups of crucial data and ensuring that those backups are stored offline (not connected to the same network as the original files) can help to protect against data loss in the event of a ransomware attack.
