Fight the ransomware virus with Mimecast
Ransomware virus attacks are increasing at an alarming rate, with reports of more than 4000 incidents per day. The news headlines are filled with stories of companies whose data has been held hostage in ransomware attacks, and the cost to recover data now exceeds more than $1 billion each year.
Guarding against a ransomware virus requires both strong security and powerful archiving. Your security measures for ransomware prevention must start with your email system, as email is the primary attack vector for hackers spreading the ransomware virus. And with the right archiving tools, you can easily recover data and keep email available even if a ransomware virus successfully breaches your defenses.
