Ransomware Detection

    Mimecast offers a highly effective solution against targeted attacks like ransomware.

    Ransomware detection requires superior technology

    As ransomware attacks become more frequent, organizations are turning to ransomware detection technology to fend off this growing threat.




    How to detect a ransomware attack

    During a ransomware attack, cyberattackers access corporate data or network systems, hold them hostage by encrypting or blocking access to them, and demand that the organization pay a ransom to regain access.

    Ransomware attacks are often conducted via malicious URLs or weaponized attachments in an email message. Consequently, ransomware detection depends on technology that can scan email for suspicious links and malware, and prevent employees from clicking on a link or opening attachment that can initiate a ransomware attack.
