At Aspect IT, we have a specialist product that will protect your business from ransomware.
The protection covers all your end-points including servers, computers and laptops.
Key Points to know about Ransomware
Currently, there are two types of ransomware; one will encrypt files on your computer or network and the second will lock your computer screen. Once this first stage has been successful, it asks for a payment (ransom) to release the files or unlock the computer.
Ransoms are usually not very expensive, around £300. This is because if the amount is kept low, people are more likely to pay the ransom. Hackers also make it easy to pay the ransom via a web site or bitcoins to encourage payment.
The UK government advises that anyone who is a victim of ransomware should not pay. This is because it is funding organised crime and there is never a guarantee you will get your files back or computer unlocked. They advise is to be protected beforehand.
