Catch attacks before they begin
Ransomware attacks have skyrocketed due to the increase in remote work, which opens up more gateways for an attack. These attacks are incredibly disruptive to an organization, costing time, money and trust.
Businesses of any size and any industry are potential victims. In 2021, 80 percent of organizations were hit by a ransomware attack (Claroty x Forbes). It is more important than ever to protect your business or firm from a ransomware attack
Types of Ransomware
Ransomware is malicious software (malware) that an outsider can use to access and encrypt another’s files. Financial extortion is the ultimate goal the majority of the time. The cyber criminal will threaten to publish or destroy your data unless a fee is paid.
There are two main types of ransomware, crypto and locker. Crypto ransomware is the most common and involves files being encrypted so that they are unusable. Locker ransomware locks the user out of the system – aside from the ability to pay the ransom, of course.
In both cases, a ransom must be paid in order to retrieve your data and private information. SorceTek are experts in anti-ransomware technology.

Prevention and Protection
Common sense measures such as never clicking on an unknown link, never disclosing personal information and keeping your systems up to date are solid precautions when it comes to avoiding malware.
Content filters and virus scanners installed on your mail servers are another way to avoid an attack, but it is still important that the right anti-ransomware software is installed onto your systems.
This software will be able to scan, detect and prevent your system from becoming infected, saving you from paying a costly ransom and all the headaches of being hacked.
