Webroot: Effective protection against ransomware attacks and other threats


Today, businesses of all sizes are under constant attack. With the variety, number and speed of attacks, stopping malware, ransomware, phishing, cryptomining and other malicious attacks targeting users and systems has never been more crucial.


Cases of ransomware attacks that make the headlines usually involve large ransoms from huge corporations.

Companies such as Kia Motors, Accenture and Acer have been some of the biggest victims in recent times. However, it is important to understand that the 'Top 10' incidents do not represent an accurate or at least comprehensive picture of the impact of attacks on companies in the recent past.


It is small businesses and not-for-profit organisations that are often attractive to cyber criminals due to limited IT budgets, complex networks and a lack of cyber security professionals. As a result, schools or universities, police units or city halls have found themselves under the greatest threat in recent years. According to the Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Report, the infection rate is growing fastest in the healthcare, non-profit, arts or entertainment industries. The most frequently attacked institutions are schools, local governments and hospitals, as the Polish Mother's facility in Lodz, Poland found out late last year.


To reduce the risk of falling victim to ransomware or other malware, companies can follow a few easy-to-implement steps, such as regular data backups, use of anti-virus software and increased employee awareness. It is important to employ comprehensive endpoint protection, which Webroot® Business Endpoint Protection has in its portfolio.


Webroot harnesses the power of cloud computing and real-time machine learning to continuously monitor and adapt each endpoint protection system to the threats that the end user or the system they are using is exposed to. When the tool detects suspicious behaviour, it immediately blocks access to a file or programme. It provides security against exploit threats that exploit vulnerabilities in the system or software, protects against phishing, which is one of the most common ways ransomware infects systems, blocks DDoS attacks, and also protects against zero-day threats and other cyber attacks.


Combined with easy managed protection for all devices from a single location, low impact on system performance and proven effectiveness by tens of thousands of customers, Webroot® Business Endpoint Protection solves endpoint device protection problems and will complement any organisation's cyber security strategy.
