Block Every Step in the Ransomware Kill Chain

The Severity of the Ransomware Threat

Ransomware is one of the fastest-growing cyber threats in today’s digital landscape. Where national governments and large enterprises were once the primary targets, local governments, and smaller organizations are now becoming increasingly lucrative victims to most hackers – with an alarming US$ 456.8 million being extorted through ransomware within 2022 alone. Statista reported that the global cost of cybercrime was an estimated US$ 8.4 trillion in 2022 and that the cost of incidents caused by illegal activities on the internet is set to surpass US$ 11 trillion by the end of 2023.

Ransomware threats and attacks can devastate a company’s financial posture, breach critical data, and destroy a public reputation – which is impossible for most small to medium enterprises to recover from. The need for adequate cybersecurity and anti-ransomware solutions is expected to only grow within the next few years due to the drastic increase of attacks taking place and their growing sophistication. 

This is where Sangfor’s Anti-Ransomware solution enters the fray to provide a revolutionary approach to identifying and preventing all aspects of the ransomware kill chain – giving your organization a secure and reliable platform to mitigate the risk of ransomware in the future.

Frequently Asked Question

There is no specific target when it comes to ransomware attacks as all businesses – from small and medium-sized enterprises to major firms – may be caught in the crosshairs. A total of 236.1 million ransomware attacks worldwide were reported during the first half of 2022 alone and research stated that 54% of respondents indicated the use of phishing scams as the most common cause of a ransomware breach. Anyone can be a victim of a ransomware attack – which is why implementing the right cybersecurity measures is crucial for you and your organization.

Phishing emails with malicious attachments are one of the major causes of ransomware attacks. Additionally, drive-by downloading has also been attributed to many ransomware-related issues. Essentially, drive-by downloading is where an individual visits a website infected with ransomware unknowingly, which results in the ransomware being downloaded and installed on the system the user is operating on. This triggers the Ransomware Kill Chain, and the only way to effectively stop it is with a trusted ransomware prevention solution like Sangfor’s Security Solution for Ransomware.

Companies that fall victim to ransomware attacks stand to lose a lot. Not only are they at risk of suffering data loss and data theft, but they may also experience financial losses as a result of paying the ransom demanded. IT costs, legal fees, network modifications, a decrease in productivity, and potential loss in reputation are among the other pitfalls that may befall companies. With the frequency of attacks on the rise, and big payouts already having occurred, many firms are seeking top of the line cybersecurity services to ensure they are protected against all types of attacks, including ransomware.
