Ransomware is the number one malware attack affecting Hampshire businesses today.
It breaks through your firewall and then encrypts your files and folders, it then holds them hostage until the ransom is paid. However, this still does not guarantee the files will be free from trace virus’. Without Business I.T. Protection this can cause massive disruption to any business and sometimes results in complete loss of data.
What do you need to avoid this and have complete Business I.T. Protection? Well, there is no exact cure as hackers keep evolving the way they access your network, but there are a few products on the market that are built to try and defend against this sort of virus. A product we have been testing, that also gets very good reviews is by Sophos, called ‘Intercept X’ It has a feature called CryptoGuard, which prevents the malicious spontaneous encryption of your data by ransomware—even trusted files or processes that have been hijacked.
Once ransomware gets intercepted, CryptoGuard reverts your files back to their safe states!
“Intercept X provides detailed, forensic-level analysis which illuminates the root causes of attacks and their infection paths offering prescriptive guidance to help remediate infections today and bolster your security posture moving forward”.
