What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts the victim’s data. The bad actors threaten to keep the data locked or delete it unless the victim pays the ransom.
It does not matter what kind of ransomware it is once it enters the security systems, it affects the entire security architecture. After infecting the system, it starts corrupting files and alters the accessing credentials. In short, the computer system becomes a hostage environment where cyber attackers make demands to give access to the system.
Ransomware attacks are evolving fast and are inevitable. The hackers are exploiting new ways of circumventing existing security controls. It is increasingly mandatory for every organization to find solutions to restore business continuity rapidly and safely with as little data loss as possible.
