Protect from ransomware with Mimecast
As ransomware viruses like Cryptolocker become more prevalent and sophisticated, organizations everywhere are looking for more effective ways to protect from ransomware.
A ransomware virus usually starts with an email – an unsuspecting user clicks the wrong link or opens a malicious attachment and the virus is launched. The attackers take control of systems or data and hold it hostage by blocking access or encrypting it. Organizations can only regain access after paying a ransom.
To protect from ransomware, you need a powerful security solution for email that prevents users from clicking suspicious links or opening weaponized attachments. But because your anti ransomware technology may not be successful 100% of the time, you also need superior backup, archiving and recovery technology that can negate the impact of a ransomware attack by delivering continuous access to your information assets.
