Today, ransomware is wreaking havoc and then some. A string of ransomware known as LockerGoga collapsed the operational systems of one of the world’s largest aluminum manufacturers, costing them $40M USD and counting. In May, a ransomware attack on a United States city government had an estimated impact of $18M USD: $10M to rebuild the city's systems and $8M in lost revenue—more than 200X the original $80,000 ransom.
It gets worse—the 2019 ransomware landscape includes over 1,100 different variants, with LockerGoga just one of the 10 most popular ransomware strains. Jigsaw, a particularly malicious form of ransomware, not only encrypts users’ files, but also progressively deletes them.
But ransomware is just a single type of cyber-security threat encountered by organizations around the world. Organizations are also struggling with downtime and data loss caused by malware, insider threats, natural disasters, public cloud outages and more.
Get ahead of the threat
In today’s data-driven society, leaders understand data needs to be at the heart of their business—and that data needs to be always protected. But protection isn’t the end-all.
Business continuity depends on whether you can recover from a debilitating event—because it may not be a matter of if your business is going to be put in that situation, but one of when. And while data protection should be the first step in your arsenal, being able to recover critical business data and business services quickly is just as important.
