Ransomware has quickly become one of the most infectious and feared threats in business environments. Ironically, the main cost is not the ransom itself, but the business downtime it causes – so it is not surprising that only a third of businesses believe they will recover from a ransomware attack without significant losses.
To date, there are roughly 2.8 million known unique samples of ransomware and the numbers keep growing, with DIY ransomware creation tools readily available.
According to Bitdefender Labs, over 400,000 new malware/ransomware variants are created daily, and 99% are only seen once before they are modified. Traditional signature-based AV simply cannot keep up because, by the time a signature is created, the malware has already changed.
