Prescott, AZ, October 18, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- With more than 4,000 cases of ransomware reported daily and at a cost of more than $209 million in the first 3 months of 2016 (up 90% from 2015), cyber piracy has moved from the Internet’s dark corners to every corner of the globe. While this is a global threat, the United States is the most targeted nation by these thieves, receiving 28% of the total attacks worldwide.
For those seeking a way to prevent or combat ransomware, a no-cost webinar is being offered by Nuvocomp, a data storage/data protection reseller, on October 27 at 11:00 a.m. (Pacific Time).
The 1-hour webinar will feature data management and protection personnel from Nuvocomp and Infrascale to provide insights, advice and strategies to battle the extortion of personal and business data.
A recent study found that more than 50% of U.S. organizations reported a ransomware attempt last year. These modern day pirates are typically overseas coders who create malicious software designed to block access to a computer system. Once they have succeeded in controlling an individual or company’s system, they extort money to return the system back to its original owner. Access to the system is only granted when a Bitcoin payment has been made. And if payment is not made by the deadline, the fee rises exponentially.
Here’s the reality. It’s not the ransom that is so damaging to your business. It’s the downtime that is. And the cost of downtime is usually far greater than can be measured in financial terms. A business’s reputation can be affected, too.
Nuvocomp is headquartered in Prescott, AZ and is focused on delivering answers to data storage, management and protection problems faced by today’s businesses. The company’s founder, Brenda Gatling, is a disabled Navy vet and is committed to helping businesses and agencies see how they can benefit from implementing contemporary technology.
Using Nuvocomp’s data protection services, businesses can monitor and quickly restore their systems when struck down due to ransomware, hardware failure or natural disasters.
This no-cost webinar is being co-hosted by Infrascale, a leader in data backup / recovery and disaster recovery field. Founded in 2006, Infrascale has 7 datacenters located in the USA, Europe, South Africa and Australia and protects over 1 million devices.
