Ransomware Protection

Ransomware Attacks.  It's not IF...but WHEN.

Organizations have seen a steady increase – if nothing short of an explosion - of ransomware attacks. No longer are businesses worried about IF a hacker will intrude, corrupt, and/or extort money, but they are now worried about WHEN such an event will happen.

Ransomware threat actors are getting highly sophisticated, and with social engineering, it's difficult for organizations to keep their security up with the pace.  According to Dark Reading, businesses suffered 50% more ransomware attempts per week in 2021 than in 2020.

Cybersecurity Ventures says by 2031, ransomware will be the fastest growing type of cybercrime expected to attack a business, consumer, or device.  It is expected that ransomware will occur every 2 seconds with a cost to victims of $265B - up from every 11 seconds in 2021 with a cost of $20B.

United States Authorities reported that ransomware payments of approximately $590 million were made during the first six months of 2021, a significant increase compared to the $416 million reported for the whole year of 2020. With the alarming increase of complexity and volume of attacks, the US Department of Homeland Security confirmed that ransomware is a major threat to national security. So how do you prepare for an attack?

How do you combat Ransomware?

1. Prevention

Ransomware prevention is the first line of defense.  Phishing emails are still the most common point of entry.  Though employee training and awareness has improved immensely, malicious websites and links are still fooling many. Once inside the network, a users mistake leads to these statistics:

95% of ransomware attacks attempted to infect backup repositories, and 71% of those attempts were successful.

44% of production data was successfully encrypted – and of that, only 67% of data was recoverable. 

With statistics like these, it's important to look at ransomware prevention.  Practicing network vigilance and hygiene with monitoring, patching, end point management, device encryption, etc. helps keep a network secure from outside threats.  Though keeping a network secure can be daunting, there are some great solutions to address protecting a network and preventing a breach.  Learn more about the following solutions that can help prevent ransomware attacks.

2.  Ransomware Solutions

Having a solid Backup/DR product that also acts as a ransomware protection software is key to being able to recover data in the event of a ransomware attack.  Since data is the lifeblood of a company, it needs to be protected and highly available.  Backup and Disaster Recovery solutions are the insurance policy against corrupted, highjacked and deleted data.  Data protection has come a long way too over the recent years and there are many great products on the market today.

With the variety of options, businesses need to know exactly what’s at stake and how long they can afford to be without their data.  Conducting a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) is a good place to start.  Business Impact Analyses ask valuable questions where the answers will indicate how much of an interruption a ransomware attack could inflict. A downtime calculator is another great tool that shows potential revenue lost during a data loss event.  It’s important to know - down to the dollars and cents - exactly how long your business can afford being off-line.  Try Zerto's downtime calculator to calculate your business' lost revenue in real time due to unavailable resources.  Utilizing both the BIA and downtime calculator can help lead you to the ransomware/data protection solution that best suits your business needs.

3. Ransomware Recovery

Ransomware Recovery is synonymous with Disaster Recovery. Having a plan in place is crucial to minimize business downtime and data loss. When Ransomware strikes, it’s obviously very alarming and can cause a good amount of distress – even if you do have a solid recovery plan in place. The purpose of the plan is to make sure action items are taken not only swiftly, but correctly, in the correct order, and by the correct person. An even bigger disaster would be NOT having a disaster recovery plan to begin with.

Net3 Technology knows the viable threats and damages ransomware can have on a business. It’s why we have focused on a Recovery Preparedness Program to help customers be prepared for such an event.

Net3 provides customers with reliable Disaster Recovery through an all encompassing program called


Small to medium size businesses are the perfect target of ransomware since they cannot afford the investments of security - accounting for 43% of all cyber attacks.  As the threat of ransomware continues to increase, it is essential for businesses to implement a strong Recovery Plan and secure common vulnerabilities to lower their risk of suffering from a cyber attack.  Poor planning and underlying weaknesses associated with applications and operating systems can expose a business to potential threats.  Because of this, we approach each disaster recovery plan through the 4 Pillar Approach.
