“If you have a Barracuda Backup in place, ransomware is absolutely no threat to your environment, ever.”

"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."
-Nels Benson
IT Director, Atlas Research
"With Barracuda CloudGen Firewall our students and our network are perfectly safe and you don’t have to worry about threats like the recent ransomware outbreaks."
-John Kellen
IT Manager, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Health Campus
"Barracuda Backup worked exactly as it should. It was easy, it was fast, and our attackers got nothing."

Ransomware is a type of malware that attackers use to find and encrypt your most important data. They then offer to provide the decryption key only if you pay a ransom, within a short time.

Cybercriminals exploit a variety of threat vectors, including email, voicemail, texting, portable media, network traffic, user behavior, and application traffic to gain access to your environment. After they gain access, their malware can move laterally to infect additional endpoints and encrypt more data. The criminals then demand payment, often in cryptocurrency. But, as many unfortunate organizations have learned, even if you pay the ransom, the criminals may not hold up their end of the deal.

Ransomware is still a problem

A new organization will fall victim to ransomware every 14 seconds in 2019, and every 11 seconds by 2021.
