From mid-2016 to the summer of this year, 79% of managed service providers reported a ransomware attack against at least one of their customers.
And although Ransomware has become an almost overused word in IT and business circles, it’s dangerous to let its commonality lead to complacency. In the first half of 2018 alone, 55% of MSPs were still reporting at least one attempted ransomware attack against a client.
Take our chances?
The question many small and medium sized businesses ask is whether the cost of a ransomware prevention solution is really worth it. Given the pressures on IT budgets and cost control in general, while it may be tempting to take your chances with a proactive ransomware protection solution, the risks may not be worth it.
For SMBs, the aftermath of a ransomware attack can be crippling. 67% of firms subjected to an attack report at least some loss of business productivity, while over half report the downtime being ‘business-threatening’.
