Ransomware is a clear and present danger and is globally considered one of the foremost threats to enterprises today.
What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a malicious software designed by organized cyber criminals, aka “bad actors”, who determinedly work to infiltrate enterprise systems, steal and encrypt their data, and extort hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars from these hacked companies and their customers.
In the past, most of the attackers simply ask for the money in exchange for a key to the encryption so that companies can get access to their data again, but a recent evolution has been to leak sensitive or proprietary data or sell it off to others.
