YOUR LAST LINE OF DEFENSE
Being infected by ransomware is no longer a question of “if,” but a matter of “when.” And when a computer becomes infected with ransomware, typically the backup files are the first attacked and corrupted or deleted. Once a device is infected with ransomware, it can spread to other devices on the network and stop your business in its tracks. Without a secure and available backup of company data, your business is at risk of interruption and the expense of recover your data from hackers. Creating an immutable, secure backup is critical to your cyber resilience plan and prevents you from being at the mercy of hackers.
Even if your system is infected with ransomware, the Blocky software will protect your backup data. Blocky creates an immutable data shield using zero-trust that prevents unauthorized processes from altering or deleting backup data. Blocky makes sure that your backup is available as “Your Last Line of Defense.”
What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is malicious software that can delete or encrypt your data. These attacks prevent traditional recovery from backups, thus shutting down your business operations. The perpetrators of these attacks demand payment (a ransom) to release your data. As it becomes easier to buy and deploy ransomware, such attacks are increasing at a furious pace for businesses of all sizes and industries.
At the same time, it has become difficult to protect against the increasing number of attacks and sophistication of the software used. Every month, new ransomware families emerge, and with them, new methods to bypass security systems.
What are the consequences of a ransomware attack?
When a computer becomes infected with ransomware, the damage is immense. Once the malware is in the system, it can spread to other devices on the network and shut down your whole business. Without data access, productivity comes to a complete halt, and high recovery and cleanup costs are incurred. In addition, downtime can have long-term negative consequences for the company’s image. In the worst case, it may no longer be possible to recover the data—even after paying a resolution fee.
How does ransomware get into my business?
Ransomware can enter your computer in various ways. Most often, it sneaks in via emails that ask you to click a link or has the malware in an attachment. However, infected websites or advertisements are also a growing threat. A wrong click activates a tool in the background that searches for vulnerabilities on your computer. Once a weakness like this is found, like in old software, ransomware is downloaded and put on your computer. All of this usually happens unnoticed.
