In today’s world, business organizations and individuals have become accustomed to accessing the information they need 24 hours a day, seven days a week, often within seconds of making a request. To illustrate, an ad marketing study conducted by Google found that 53% of website sessions are terminated if pages take longer than three seconds to load.
Simultaneously, there is a significant and growing risk to preventing your business from being able to meet these demanding goals: the rising frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks. In 2021, ransomware attacks increased by 13% year over year, as large an increase as in the previous five years combined. Unlike other types of attacks, a ransomware attacker does not have to resell or otherwise exploit the data in your network.
A 2021 analysis by Verizon reported that an attacker may be interested in interrupting your business by encrypting the data and denying access to it.
