Webair Spotlight: Ransomware Recovery-as-a-Service
No company is immune to Ransomware. Businesses of all sizes, from enterprises to SMBs, continue to see more attacks. Moreover, one in five companies that have paid Ransomware demands never retrieve their files.

While Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) offer threat detection and prevention services to combat Ransomware attacks, these proactive solutions are only half the battle. In order to achieve comprehensive security protection for the enterprise, these services must be paired with pre-planned, reactive solutions to provide full protection and recovery from Ransomware and other cyberattacks.

Don’t Let Your Business Be Held Hostage
Recover your applications fast with Webair’s Ransomware Recovery-as-a-Service.

Did You Know?
Webair was named a Notable Vendor in Gartner's 2017 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service

According to the Kaspersky Security Bulletin 2016, the number of Ransomware attacks on businesses tripled last year, jumping from one attack every two minutes in Q1, to one every 40 seconds by Q3. In addition, the report disclosed that one in five businesses that paid the ransom in 2016 never got their files back. Given these alarming statistics, companies around the world are seeking comprehensive protection against the threat of Ransomware attacks, lest their business suffer disastrous consequences.

Case Study: Healthcare
2017 has brought with it some of the largest and most sophisticated Ransomware and cybersecurity attacks the world has ever experienced, many of which specifically targeted healthcare organizations. Recently, the “Petya” worm infected the computers of drug giant, Merck, as well as hospitals in Pennsylvania’s Heritage Valley Health System. Earlier this year, the “WannaCry” Ransomware program hit upwards of 200,000 victims in more than 150 countries, including the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS).

Given their obligation to maintain compliance with HIPAA standards, healthcare organizations find themselves particularly vulnerable to the devastating consequences of cyberattack. By partnering with an advanced Disaster Recovery (DR) service provider such as Webair, these enterprises can receive a solution that is customized to their individual needs, allowing them to rest assured that their data is safe and secure.
