In recent years, ransomware type attacks are increasing and affecting all types of organizations.  According to the  Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), “Ransomware is a type of malicious software, or malware, designed to deny access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid. Ransomware typically spreads through phishing emails or by unknowingly visiting an infected website. Ransomware can be devastating to an individual or an organization.”

It is currently impossible to know how much ransom is being paid by U.S. businesses, governments, schools and non-profits to these ransomware captives but the Emsisoft Report estimates it was in the excess of 7.5 billion in 2019.  The state of Louisiana recently passed a law requiring managed service providers disclose cyber security incidents to the state and to notify them when a ransom for one of their clients is paid.

The Best Ways to Prevent a Ransomware Attack

Be Vigilant

Hover over a link before you click it on an email or website.  See if the link is misleading you and not sending you to the appropriate website.  Also check the senders email by double clicking on the name and see if it is a false email and someone is spoofing a name.  Be on the lookout for bad actors trying to get you to do something that could cause harm to your network.

DNS Protection 

Our DNS Protection for workstations (computers & laptops) is a cloud security platform that provides the first line of defense against threats (including many ransomware type attacks) on the internet wherever users go. This solution blocks malicious destinations before a connection is ever established. This is an additional layer of network security and content filtering.

Email Security

With our Email Security Solution, we stop viruses, spam, phishing and other email related threats.  Our solution includes a safe senders list and blocked senders list.  Users receive a daily email spam summary to review quarantined items.

Redundant Off-Site Backup

The best protection against external and internal security threats is an off-site backup of data.  With our Redundant Off-Site Backup Solution, only you will have access to your documents. Before your data files are backed-up, they are encrypted using 448-bit blowfish encryption. Files are encrypted at the source during transfer and stored in an encrypted database. We provide versioning of files so you can access a document before it is deleted or changed.
