Endpoint Protection Best Practices to Block Ransomware

In our survey of 5,000 IT Managers across 26 countries, 51% of respondents revealed
that they were hit by ransomware in the last year. In 73% of those incidents, attackers
succeeded in encrypting data. Furthermore, the average global cost to remediate these
attacks was an eye-watering $761,106.

One of the most effective methods to protect against ransomware attacks is with a
properly configured endpoint protection solution. In this whitepaper, we will discuss how ransomware attacks work, how they can be stopped, and best practices for configuring
your endpoint solution for the strongest protection possible.

organization should be doing to minimize its vulnerability to an attack.
