Ransomware is a low risk, high reward opportunity for criminals. The number and sophistication of ransomware attacks have increased significantly. And given the increasing value of business data and functioning IT systems, this threat will only continue to grow.
Traditional approaches to mitigating ransomware need to be re-evaluated. The advanced design of today’s ransomware cyberattacks requires federal agencies to adopt an “Assume-Breach” mindset.
In this eBook we look at a combined, defense-in-depth approach to ransomware protection. This includes stronger access and permission security with Endpoint Privilege Management (EPM) solutions working alongside common endpoint security tools such as Endpoint/ Extended Detection and Response (EDR/ XDR) and Next Gen Anti-Virus (NGAV), to provide stronger, more rounded protection against today’s dynamic ransomware threat.
