Threat Landscape

Understanding Ransomware

Ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid. There are various types of ransomware, including Crypto ransomware, which encrypts files, and Locker ransomware, which locks users out of their systems. Both can severely disrupt business operations.

Ransomware attacks have become increasingly common and costly. Businesses worldwide face millions of dollars in losses, operational downtime, and reputational damage due to these attacks. Understanding the severity of the threat underscores the necessity for advanced detection and prevention strategies.


Challenges in Detecting Ransomware

Traditional Methods vs. Advanced Detection

Traditional antivirus and firewall solutions often fall short in detecting and preventing sophisticated ransomware attacks. These conventional methods rely on known signatures and patterns, which can be easily bypassed by new, evolving ransomware strains. Advanced detection methods, powered by AI and machine learning, are crucial in identifying subtle, abnormal behaviors that indicate a ransomware threat.
