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.
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.
Barracuda provides a family of advanced network firewalls that monitor and secure traffic both into and out of the network, along with internal traffic, to prevent ransomware and other malware from gaining a foothold. Advanced email security solutions go beyond what gateways can do, combining multiple powerful filtering techniques with backup and more for Office 365.
If ransomware does take control of your data, there’s no need to pay ransom or go through a difficult and tedious recovery process—if you have a strong, modern, easy-to-use backup solution. Barracuda offers superior backup solutions—on-premises or in the cloud—that make it simple and fast to restore an up-to-date copy of any file, whether you’re restoring an entire server or specifically selecting files to restore.
