Given the “success” of its initial wave, the ransomware problem is getting worse. Backups seem to be the “go to” solution but really they should represent the last line of defense. The problem with backups are that they are not frequent enough to protect all the data that ransomware can impact. In a busy organization, a lot of data can be created and modified between backup jobs. And it is this most active data that organizations are willing to pay for to get unlocked. Ransomware developers know this and are exploiting it with strains of the code that can infect more file types, faster than ever.
It is not a matter of if but a matter of when someone will hit an organization with a ransomware attack. Ransomware is most typically triggered by an unsuspecting user clicking on a link in email they shouldn’t touch. That link downloads the ransomware code and it starts crawling through the network looking for files to encrypt. As these attacks increase in their sophistication, they target specific corporate servers.
