Ransomware – Pay Up

Ransomware is malware that spreads via email attachments and locks users out of their computers until they pay a ransom. Ransomware is a growing problem in the enterprise; just last year, the CryptoLocker virus infected more than 200,000 computers, causing massive amounts of lost and unrecovered data. Even so, less than 2 percent of CryptoLocker-infected organizations go through the hassle and expense of paying the ransom. Unless the affected company has proper endpoint backup in place, it either pays the costly fee or risks never seeing its data again.

Endpoint data protection and security are a bigger priority for enterprises as they consider the devastating impact of data loss. In fact, an ESG Research survey discovered that 66 percent of organizations have re-evaluated their endpoint security policies, processes and tools to create a plan for improving endpoint security. An integral part of the puzzle is endpoint backup, which companies are increasingly tapping as a core element of an overall endpoint security strategy.

In this slideshow, Code42 highlights the top five scenarios when endpoint backup staves off major data security threats in the enterprise.
