Ransomware is on the rise.

Ransomware is on the rise.

Ransomware is on the rise. Bad guys encrypt valuable data, demanding that victims pay a ransom if they ever want to access their data again.

Bad News:  Ransomware Attacks are Increasing.  An example of bad guys announcing their attack:

Good News:  Tested and proven security software is now available to protect you from this threat.  Anti-Virus software is NO LONGER ENOUGH and will NOT protect you from ransomware, since viruses and ransomware are different beasts.

Anti-ransomware software costs only about $2 per computer per month.  Set that against the hundreds of thousands it could cost you to recover from a ransomware attack, and this is a no brainer.  If you don’t have Enterprise Anti-Ransomware software installed on every computer in your business, you are carrying an unnecessary risk, and a heavy risk at that.  For a quote on this, email us at alison@holstonit.com.
