Ransomware – A Growing Enterprise Threat

A deep dive into ransomware's evolution and why businesses can't afford to ignore it

Ransomware has grown up. Once a “consumer-only” problem, there's now an established business case for profitability, and that’s driving criminals to expand their operations and hunt for more lucrative prey. As a result, commercial enterprise and other large organizations are increasingly in the crosshairs.

Consider these facts:
  • Ransomware attacks doubled in 2015
  • The number of new ransomware variants increased 17% in Q1 2016
  • The FBI estimates that ransomware will net criminals $1 billion in 2016

This white paper dives into the inner workings of ransomware and its perpetrators, including how their tactics and targets are evolving to maximize profits. You’ll also learn how companies are fighting back, and review best practices for protecting your organization from becoming another victim of electronic extortion.
