Heads UP! How Does Ransomware Work?


Cyber Ransomware typically spreads via spam, phishing emails, websites, system vulnerabilities or downloads which infects your corporate networks. 


Typically, ransomware locks files and databases it can access using strong encryption to demand a ransom (typically payable in Bitcoin) to decrypt the files and restore full operations to the affected critical IT systems.



The best way to prevent and defeat Ransomware


1.  Use anti-virus and anti-malware software or other security policies to block malicious payloads from launching.


2.   Make frequent, comprehensive backups of all important files and isolate them from your local network.

How can MARCOTTE’s Msync Cloud help with Ransomware? 



The fastest way to recover from ransomware is to restore your infected systems from a backup.


Some concrete producers recently attacked by ransomware restored all Mbatch and Mdispatch systems from their Msync cloud backup! Pretty cool, eh?
