Prevent ransomware with Mimecast
As ransomware attacks continue to plague companies worldwide, organizations are looking for the most effective ways to prevent ransomware from disrupting business.
Ransomware like Cryptolocker or Locky are usually initiated through email. The message usually contains a malicious URL that launches the ransomware virus when clicked, or an attachment that contains malicious macros to execute the virus when opened by an unsuspecting user.
Once the virus has infected a machine or system, it prevents access to or encrypts files and data. Individuals or organizations must pay a ransom in order to get access to their data again.
To prevent ransomware, you need a sophisticated security solution that provides multiple tools to detect and block ransomware before it can cause damage. And to truly protect your organization from ransomware, you also need the ability to backup and recover data quickly in the event of a ransomware attack. Mimecast can help on both fronts.
