Cloud IT Expert Offers Ransomware Recovery Advice

June 24, 2016

With all the news about the increase of ransomware attacks in the media, it can seem like there’s no strategy to dealing with the problem other than coughing up the ransom.

But Intermedia SVP of Security Products, Richard Walters, has a different take. His recent article for Entrepreneur offers concrete strategies for IT admins to combat the threat of ransomware and recovery quickly when attacks happen…all without paying a dime in ransom money. You can read the full article here.


Here’s my favorite quote from the article:

“Each new attack serves as a stark reminder that prevention, containment and business continuity techniques are crucial to keeping companies up and running in today’s threat landscape. This especially holds true when advanced ransomware, like TeslaCrypt, adds features that are “impossible” to crack.”

Read Richard’s full Entrepreneur article to learn these prevention, containment and business continuity techniques and how implementing them can help you recover from a ransomware attack quicker…and without paying ransom. It’s a great combination of technology and employee training that will go a long way to making ransomware attacks less painful.
