Ready for a better way to combat ransomware and other cybercrime?

Relying on patches and policing employees to prevent ransomware and other cybercrime appears to be a never-ending emergency for small businesses today. In a perfect world, such measures would offer total protection. But few of us live in a perfect world. Employees are ignoring basic protocols, like using password protection tools and using work computers and mobile phones for personal use.

According to 600 individuals in companies—many with a headcount of less than 100—participating in a recent survey on cybersecurity

· $2,235,018 per year is the average amount spent in the aftermath of a cyber attack or data breach (up from $1,835,011)*

· 9,350 is the average number of records compromised in a data breach (up from 5,079)*

· 61% say their business was a victim of a cyber attack (up from 55%)*

· 54% say a negligent employee or contractor was the root cause of their data breaches (up from 48%)*

· And ransomware has increased from 2% to 52% over a 12 month period

So those new patches you hired an IT guy to put in place across the network? Those security policies you told your employees to follow. Fugget'About'It! Well, no, not really. But you and I know that your business needs a better way to protect against cyber threats and achieve online security. Especially when you realize that 32 percent of respondents in that cybersecurity survey don’t know the root cause of their data breaches (the same percentage as last year), 66 percent say exploits and malware evaded their intrusion detection system (up from 57%), and 81 percent say their anti-virus solutions failed (up from 76%).*
