Nearly every day, there’s another story about a ransomware attack in the news. The U.S. Department of Justice reports that an average of 4,000 daily ransomware attacks have been taking place since January 1, 2016.
Ransomware has become a sizable international business, and it’s now estimated that the global cost for organizations will reach $5 billion by the end of 2017, up 400% from 2016 estimates. The average ransom requested has risen to $2,500, but this number pales in comparison to the hours of lost productivity that businesses suffer and the resources spent trying to recover the data, as well as the time and effort needed to determine the extent of the breach and ensure that the damage has been contained.
When you consider the fact that these costs are compounded by the immeasurable consequences of critical data that may ultimately be irrecoverable, it becomes clear that the potential harm inflicted on an organization by a ransomware attack can be extremely severe. With ransomware attacks on the rise, organizations of all sizes have found themselves vulnerable and struggling to reduce risk and respond to an attack.
At Druva, we take ransomware seriously. Our cloud native platform was purpose-built to help customers both proactively avoid and reactively respond to ransomware attacks like the recent WannaCry and Petya.
Druva has partnered with AWS and Hatco, a leading Druva inSync customer, to give you a real-world example of how organizations are protecting themselves against ransomware.
