What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malicious malware. Once your system is infected, it denies you access to your files and apps until you pay the ransom.
Ransomware is a serious threat to all businesses worldwide, no matter the size. In 2015, ransomware attacks were just at 3.8 million. One year later, this number skyrocketed to over 638 million.*
Many businesses hit by ransomware have been forced to close down. But ransomware has one big weakness. If you've got clean backups, you can wipe the infected system and restore your data, all without paying ransom!
But ransomware is smart. It knows backups are it's weakness. So it looks for ways to encrypt your backups so that you can't use them.
That's where CryptoSafeGuard comes in - actively protecting your backups from ransomware infection.
