Every 40 seconds, a company gets hit by a ransomware.
The scars of Wannacry have not healed yet, but there comes a new ransomware attack to haunt the cyber world again. Petya, another ransomware, has hit organizations across Europe. Unfortunately, it’s far more sophisticated and disruptive to your operations. 2017 is being swept by the ransomware wave, and this does not seem to end.
Ransomware, as it is called, is malicious software that locks a device —computer, tablet or smartphone and demands a ransom to unlock it. It hits the device when navigating through various hacked websites, downloading a file or clicking a wrong link.
