Does Your IT Support Provide Sufficient Ransomware Protection?

With so many aspects of business online now, data protection and cyber security are more important now than ever before.


It’s vital that your business is safe from potential cyberattacks and that you have cutting-edge technology in place to reduce the chances of a criminal causing issues and possibly ruining your company’s reputation.


Texaport understands the importance of a robust cyber security plan and the immense importance of ransomware protection.


If you’re unsure about ransomware and why your company’s network and devices need to be protected from it, then keep reading. We’ll explain what ransomware is, the damage it can do to your organisation, and how you can keep your precious data and tech safe from it.


What Is Ransomware?


Ransomware is a type of computer virus software that targets a user’s network, files and data. Once the software has launched on a device or in a system, it gets to work encrypting the files and making them unusable.


The owner of the files or network is then asked for a ransom in return for decrypting the data and getting rid of the virus.


Often, ransomware can be difficult to get rid of and can permanently corrupt files if it’s not decrypted correctly, which means that you have to be very careful when getting rid of it from your system.


How Much Ransomware Protection Do You Need?


As mentioned above, ransomware can be very difficult to get rid of and has the potential to wreak havoc on your business.


Therefore, it’s better to prevent a ransomware attack where possible than it is to deal with one once it has already happened.


The average ransomware payouts have doubled in the past year, so it’s worth investing in as much state-of-the-art ransomware protection as possible for your organisation.


Ransomware protection comes in a variety of forms and includes making sure that your organisation uses the Cyber Essentials.


There is also software that can be used to keep your organisation safe from ransomware, but it needs updating regularly, and you must choose the right option to suit your unique needs.


Collaborating with the right managed IT support provider can help you to ensure that your ransomware software suits your organisation and reduce the risk of ransomware breaching your business’s defences.


Work With A Managed IT Support Provider With Experience In Cyber Security


If your current IT support provider doesn’t give you the ransomware and other cyber security support that you need, then you should shop around for a new one.


At Texaport, we’ve created our service offering to provide businesses throughout Scotland and the UK with the IT support services they need.


As well as a complete suite of cyber security services, we also offer Cloud services, connectivity support and more. We also have business continuity services, so if something does go wrong and a security breach occurs, you’re protected and can get things back up and running in no time.
