Nov 26, 2021 -- United States - Guardian Digital, the premier open-source email security company, innovates ransomware protection using a unique combination of advanced multi-layered technology and expert ongoing support to secure business email from this pervasive, costly threat.
Ransomware dominates security news headlines due to the prevalence of the threat and the severity of its repercussions for any organization that experiences an attack. Symptoms of attacks often include shutting down networks and financial systems, halting government services and forcing 60% of victims out of business within six months. Modern ransomware is often designed specifically to evade the detection of traditional email security defenses, such as signature-based antivirus software, desktop protection and static native Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace email security features.
"Guardian Digital is the first cyber security company to take the best-in-class tools of the Linux community and integrate them into an enterprise email solution dedicated to security and unrivaled customer support," writes Dave Wreski, Guardian Digital founder and CEO. Guardian Digital protects SMBs and enterprises alike from the growing threat that ransomware poses to business through a unique combination of dynamic URL and file inspection, behavioral analysis and expert ongoing support.
Ransomware Risk Is Universal
No business is too small to be a ransomware target. SMBs often have less stringent technological defenses, less awareness of threats and less time and resources to invest in protection, and cybercriminals know how to take advantage of these weaknesses. Any kind of business can be targeted, but medical and government offices face attacks most often due to urgency for access of files. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), FBI and the National Security Agency (NSA) are now warning businesses to shore up cybersecurity defenses as federal authorities carefully monitor the reemergence of the DarkSide ransomware gang, believed to be responsible for the notorious Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack in May 2021. Guardian Digital has a free tool businesses can use to understand their risk and measures they can take to secure their email against ransomware and other threats.
Fighting Ransomware with Multi-Layered Technology & Comprehensive Support
Defense in depth is crucial to an effective email security strategy - no single security feature alone is enough to defend against modern threats such as zero-day ransomware attacks, which are launched with no advanced warning, do not contain any recognizable digital signature and employ advanced tactics to evade traditional detection methods. Securing business email in this modern digital threat environment requires multiple layers of advanced technology such as real-time malicious URL protection, dynamic file inspection and behavioral analysis that are designed to work harmoniously to detect and block malicious mail, ensuring that it never reaches the inbox. Comprehensive system management and support is a critical component of an effective email security solution, as many businesses - especially SMBs - experience a shortage of cybersecurity resources and expertise, leaving them unprepared to repel a ransomware attack without these expert, ongoing support services.
