Expert Ransomware Protection Services
The first half of 2021 saw a 93% increase in the number of ransomware attacks worldwide. Not only is the number of attacks increasing, but so are the ransom demands. While it’s difficult to put an exact figure on it (since many companies are loath to admit how much they paid to get their computers back), industry experts estimate the average payment rose from roughly £300,000 last year to about £450,000 this year. If that’s an amount you’re willing to part with, then good luck. If not, call Proximitum for expert ransomware protection in Worcester.
Why You Need Ransomware Protection in Worcester
Ransomware is one of the biggest threats facing SMEs today, although it’s not a new phenomenon. The first, crude ransomware attack occurred in 1989, but few took notice because the internet was little more than a curiosity at that time. The issue remained a fringe one until 2009. That was the year the cryptocurrency blockchain was born.
Hackers immediately realised the opportunity for mayhem that cryptocurrencies represented and began insisting that ransom payments be made in the almost entirely untraceable virtual currency. Attacks spiked, ransom demands increased and 12 years later businesses find themselves facing an existential crisis.
