"The first attack—without Barracuda Backup—had taken three weeks to fix and still didn’t clean everything as we later learned. By my estimation, that cost us over a million dollars in lost productivity."

How—and why—ransomware works

Criminals use ransomware—a type of malware—to find and encrypt your important data, and to demand a ransom in exchange for a decryption key.

Ransomware makes them a lot of money, so they're using every vector they can to get into your network—from email and texting to app and network traffic, often using social engineering to trick their way in.

After getting into your network, ransomware spreads, seeking specific types of data to encrypt. Once it's found, the criminals activate the malware and leave you unable to conduct business.

Detect

To detect the advanced, evasive threats that deliver ransomware, Barracuda provides multiple, innovative technologies that work in concert across multiple vectors. Find dormant email threats and web app vulnerabilities already in your systems with our free online scanners. Spot sneaky attacks that gateways can’t see, with our AI-powered anti-phishing technology. Turn your users into an active line of defense with modern, computer-based security awareness training. And use Advanced Threat Protection service to spot zero-hour attacks on any vector, while sharing new threat data across all your gateway and network security solutions.
