Battle-Tested Shield Against Ransomware Families

Cross-Industry White Paper

Malware Decrease is Proportional to Rise in Ransomware

Since COVID, a shift in the type of intrusions has become obvious: despite a 39% drop in general malware; crypto and IoT jacking rose — and ransomware proportionally, by 40% (Source: SecMag).

Ransomware hackers repurpose malware for multistage exploits, often over months, to search environments for “crown jewels.” A flood of IoT devices with little security in mind (from smartphones to door chimes) and remote workers, enable this by spiking attack vectors in.

There’s a slim chance of ransomers being caught. For one, they usually use bitcoin, which is next-to-impossible to track. Hackers will continue to use this lucrative, risk-free type of cybercrime in order to achieve global recognition and economic power. Organizations must make themselves hard targets at every level.

Know Your Risks

Risks of Outdated AppSec
Negligence as with Equifax’s preventable breach, hiding lingering threats.
Uncertainty of stakeholders due to failed ad hoc tool-stacks.
Compliance issues because proper SecDevOps is non-existent.
Poor penetration of scanners allowing malware time to discover your crown jewels.
