Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting individuals and businesses.
Businesses – particularly SMBs that have limited resources – are struggling to cope with the ransomware threat. Carbonite’s data backup and recovery services are great for regaining access to data after a compromise, but they don’t help mitigate the potential for ransomware attacks. For that, your business needs a comprehensive approach to safeguarding devices and networks against ransomware, with backup and disaster recovery as the safety net – the last, best solution for recovery after data is corrupted.
