Ransomware Is Out There! Protect Your Business Today!

Ransomware is out there! This is a malicious software that denies you access to your computer system, data, or network until you pay a specified ransom. The malware poses a huge threat to your business.

A few months ago, a company we know was hit by such a ransomware attack. For about three weeks, they were locked out of their systems. This meant no data, no invoicing, and no looking up information of any kind. The company was using a third-party IT firm to manage their servers. This was a company they switched to after their last attack. This third-party company provided the standard guarantees of security and protection, and yet here they are! Unless you pay the specified ransom, your business is completely put on hold.

At ABIS, our aim is to help secure your business network and data. We offer you our innovative Rackspace solution and managed hosting services to ensure that your computer network is given the very best security and all-around protection it deserves. With this, you can prevent attackers from taking over your business or denying you access to your computer system.

What is Ransomware and How Does It Work?

Ransomware is a type of malware that locks a user out of their system, device, or files, then demands the payment of an anonymous ransom. As you can see, a ransomware attack basically cripples all your business operations. You have no access to your system, company, or customer data. This is not to mention the amount of data that may be stolen or compromised.

How Do I Get Ransomware?

Ransomware can be gotten through malicious spam. Also referred to as malspam, malicious spam is an unsolicited email which is used to deliver malware. The malicious spam or email will include a booby-trapped attachment such as word or pdf document. The mail might also contain a link to a malicious website. You will be tricked into downloading and opening the attachment or visiting the infected website. Once you do this, your system will be attacked and taken over by the ransomware.

Let Our Trusted Rackspace Solution Help Protect Your Computer System and Network

Every year, millions of dollars are lost to cybercrimes and cyber-attacks. On May 7th, the City of Baltimore government computer systems were hit by an aggressive ransomware attack called RobbinHood. During the period of the attack, Baltimore’s city government was paralyzed with various city services knocked offline.

Unfortunately, the attack cost the city more than $18 million, in damages. This is why it is often advised to use reputable and trusted IT services to manage your servers and business network. Unless adequate measures are taken, such cyber-attack will likely reoccur. Hiring cybersecurity experts to bolster your system and network is the perfect thing to do.  https://www.engadget.com/2019/06/06/baltimore-ransomware-18-million-damages/
