Ransomware Protection | Cyber Security Solutions


Ransomware Attack Protection

Ransomware is an increasingly common attack strategy that can bring organisations of any size to a grinding halt by encrypting, corrupting, or deleting sensitive files or programs, accompanied by a ransom demand.

Like any extortionist, ransomware hackers should not be trusted.

Your money is better spent investing in a strong cyber defence than paying off criminals.

New Threats Need A Novel Approach

Of the trends we have seen develop over recent years this may be the most significant, with the global cost of ransomware expected to exceed £23 billion this year¹.

The shift towards encrypting your data has produced a new range of challenges for securing your files and systems.

Criminals Don't Play Fair

Paying a ransom is not effective - just 65% of encrypted data is restored on average², and 80% of businesses that meet ransom demands are targeted again - often within a month⁴.
