ransomware protectionRansomware attacks are known for their monetary demands – businesses hit with a successful attack see them range from a few thousand dollars into the multi-millions. The average ransomware attack costs around $84 thousand. Beyond a potential ransom payment is the true cost of ransomware: Business downtime.
