RansomWare

RansomWare

Hopefully you read this before you succumb to one of the most damaging security threats going around.  Ransomware is malware that prevents you from using your files or your computer, and then extorts money from you in exchange for a promise to unlock them. Traditional approaches of protection and detection are failing. A multi-element approach is required to minimise the chances of being held to ransom by the European hackers. They are causing havoc in Australia, targeting small and medium business and demand anything from $600 to $20,000 to unlock access to your files and data.

Deltanet is experienced in Recovery following a Ransomware attack, but strongly recommend PREVENTION MEASURES as recovery is not always successful.

A good, secured backup is essential to minimise data loss, and is just one of the elements to consider. We can consult to you business to ensure that all the prevention elements are in place.
