The number of ransomware attacks has steadily risen over the last decade and now tops 1.7 million hits per day—that’s one attack every 19 seconds. With the right disaster recovery protection solution, though, you can recover from ransomware attacks in minutes and reduce the risk of data loss to just seconds. Or, avoid them completely.
Remember when you could create a simple password for your WiFi and feel invincible? Those days are long gone. As we’ve all come to learn, whether through our own experiences or the misfortune of others, securing your business WiFi network takes a lot more than an alphanumeric token.
The conversation around business internet commonly centers on speed, bandwidth and reliability. These are all worthy metrics. But there’s another very important, yet less appreciated, quality to consider: accessibility.
Cyberattacks are increasing in frequency around the world—and the problem is even worse in the U.S., where incidents jumped 57 percent year-over-year in 2022. Finance, insurance, manufacturing and professional service providers are among the most-targeted industries, but regardless, the outlook is clear: No business can afford the potential losses caused by a breach in their network or other protected assets.
These days, an internet interruption is much more than an inconvenience for businesses. Your shop, office or salon is only part of your footprint—the real storefront is online. But that’s only the beginning of your online investment. Your POS system, credit card processing, VoIP phones, critical software and security components such as door alarms and video cameras all connect over the internet.
If your organization has experienced a ransomware attack recently, you have plenty of company. If not, then count yourself lucky.
Eighty-five percent of organizations suffered at least one ransomware attack in the past 12 months, according to the 2023 Veeam Ransomware Trends Report—and more companies will have a ransomware attack this year than turn a profit. Ransomware attacks can be damaging to your bottom line, your customers and your reputation. And the criminals who perpetrate these attacks know that.
