Cloud Workspace® will keep your customers safe from ransomware. Thu, May 25,17  

You already know that CloudJumper’s Cloud Workspace®, WaaS solution is cost-effective, robustly supported, and endlessly convenient for your end-users – but did you know it can help defend against ransomware too?

Ransomware has quickly become one of the biggest cyber threats to businesses today, especially given the recent Wanna Cry epidemic that infected hundreds of thousands of IT systems in more 150 countries. This kind of malware presents serious data integrity and financial concerns for affected businesses. It works by tricking a user into opening an executable file (either as an email attachment or downloaded from a web page linked in an email) which then encrypts the victim’s files and holds them for ransom.

That’s why our WaaS platform — Cloud Workspace®– is so effective in mitigating effects of ransomware. Firstly, through robust administrator controls, you can ensure that your customers’ end users don’t have the option to open an executable file (either through a phishing email, link or otherwise). In the event that ransomware has already penetrated the system, our comprehensive backup practices ensure that a clean, up-to-date version of the data is ready to use. That means there will never be any need to pay the ransom!

Security is an often overlooked advantage of Cloud Workspace® regardless of whether the threat is internal or external. With controlled access to the network, Cloud Workspace® provides an additional level of protection against what can be a devastating malware attack.  With no reported ransomware issues to date, the lines of access we have drawn are not only providing new measures of accountability for organizations of every size but reducing the level of risk from malware that has plagued computer users worldwide.

Don’t wait for the next Wanna Cry to hit your users to start thinking about how to protect them. Choose the right solution today to keep your customers’ businesses safe.
