The Ultimate Enterprise Ransomware Guide

Ransomware: understand, plan for, respond to and protect yourself against this now-prevalent threat.

Last year SonicWall saw a 62% rise in ransomware attacks worldwide, making it the fastest-growing attack technique for the past five years. This executive brief is a detailed study into ransomware that spans comprehension, planning, response, risk reduction, and possible preventative measures.

Ransomware, in concept, can be traced back to the late 1990s and early 2000s, with the rise in popularity of “FakeAV” or fake system utilities which “find” false infections or nonexistent system issues, then demand (aka extort) fees enable “removal” of these counterfeit artifacts.

This guide will help you understand, plan for, respond to and protect against this now-prevalent threat. It offers examples, recommendations and advice to ensure you stay unaffected by the constantly evolving ransomware menace.

The full brief contains more than twenty pages, covering the following topics:

  • How to understand the ransomware threat.
  • How to plan for a ransomware incident.
  • How to respond to an incident.
  • How to prevent attacks.
  • How SonicWall can help.
