The Late-June 2017 Petya-based cyberattack has already assaulted companies in critical economic sectors across the globe. This comes just after the WannaCry incident, the largest ransomware attack in history that shut down businesses across 150 countries and infected hundreds of thousands of machines. Watch this on-demand webinar to get a closer look at the ins and outs of these ransomware attacks and learn how you can keep your clients safe.
While the number of malware executable files and potentially unwanted applications has dropped, plenty of other threats continue to multiply. Report after report warns businesses, government and consumers of increasingly sophisticated attacks. We’ve seen zero-day phishing URLs grow steadily through 2016, with almost twice as many detected in the fourth quarter as in the first quarter.

Today, there are well over 50 vendors who offer some form of endpoint security. Some of them are old familiar names, like Symantec, McAfee, Sophos, and Trend Micro, while others are “next-gen” up-and-comers, such as Cylance, Sentinel One, Tanium, Bromium, and Carbon Black.
Today's advanced malware is increasingly difficult to remove and even harder to detect in the first place. In this presentation, we examine the modern threat landscape and discuss the shortcomings of traditional antivirus, as well as how organizations can stay ahead of the malware curve. Malware authors aren't too concerned about what traditional security is capable of blocking, since they've formed reliable tactics to circumvent that protection. Either by leveraging social engineering or advanced evasive tactics, modern malware spells an uphill battle for traditional defenses.
Crypto ransomware has come a long way over the past 2½ years and no single solution can stop it 100% of the time. But the right recovery and mitigation strategies can help MSPs keep businesses a step ahead of this virulent threat and ensure their clients are effectively protected.
The best IT Security will only help stop infections from ransomware like CryptoLocker and CryptoWall, but if your vendor is promising 100% prevention then you should be very wary. Webroot SecureAnywhere has some of the most advanced defenses against ransomware but still a few of our 50,000+ business customers were infected in 2015.
