Most organizations surveyed by Titaniam have existing security prevention and backup tools, but almost 40% have still been hit by ransomware attacks in the last year.
Ransomware infects a computer’s system.
Traditional cybersecurity products were once enough to protect organizations against viruses and hacking attempts. But today’s cyber threats are more prevalent, more sophisticated and more destructive, requiring more robust security defenses. A report released Thursday by cybersecurity firm Titaniam looks at the inability of traditional security products to protect against ransomware in particular.
For its State of Data Exfiltration & Extortion Report, Titaniam commissioned CensusWide to survey 107 IT security professionals in the U.S. about their experiences with cybersecurity and ransomware. Among the respondents, more than 75% said they had tools in place for data protection, prevention and detection, and data backup and recovery. To protect their data, the professionals surveyed pointed to such technologies as encryption, including encryption at rest and encryption in transit; data masking; and tokenization.
