Cyber criminals and malware authors are continually evolving their attacks to circumvent organisational defences.
The days of hackers being spotty teenagers with too much time on their hands is long gone. Today, cyber criminals are backed by more funds and resources than ever before. Because of this, we are seeing attacks such as ransomware getting increasingly sophisticated and hard to mitigate against.
WatchGuard’s most recent threat research shows that now some 30% of malware is classified as “zero day” and won’t be caught by traditional signature-based AV solutions.
This rapid evolution of ransomware and the wider cyber threat landscape has caused legacy cybersecurity solutions such as antivirus (AV) to struggle to keep pace. Don’t be the next victim of ransomware. WatchGuard Total Security Suite, available with all Firebox appliances, provides strong defence against advanced malware and ransomware.
How to Prevent Ransomware
Host Ransomware Protection
The Host Ransomware Prevention (HRP) feature of Threat Detection and Response enables industry-leading prevention against ransomware attacks. HRP blocks the execution of ransomware before any file encryption on the endpoint takes place, mitigating the attack before any data is lost or damage is done.
APT Blocker is a dynamic sandboxing solution providing detailed visibility and analysis into the execution of malware. If the file has never been seen before, the files are detonated in a virtual environment to analyze the behaviour and determine the threat level, protecting against advanced malware and zero-day threats.
