In the last 12 months, 60% of Australian organisations experienced a ransomware attack. This is according to Telstra’s Cyber Security Report 2017, which also found that ransomware was the number one type of malware downloaded in the Asia Pacific region during 2017.
With ransomware being one of the leading cyber security threats to Australians, you don’t need to have been a victim to understand that cybersecurity is one of the most pressing challenges businesses across the nation are facing. Analysing yesterday’s security incident no longer enables you to predict and prevent tomorrow’s attack.
A significant challenge for businesses is that legacy antivirus technology is too slow to stop cyber-attacks in time. Attacks are often weeks or months old by the time they are discovered, as many security point solutions only store a few days or weeks’ worth of data.
