Following the news about the rise of Zepto ransomware, Richard Walters, SVP Security Products at Intermedia commented below.

Richard Walters, SVP Security Products at Intermedia:

Richard-Walters“As the surge in new Zepto ransomware activity has shown, ransomware continues to evolve at dangerously fast speeds and needs to be recognised as a very real threat to organisations of all sizes. The emerging malware is no longer infiltrating one computer at a time; it’s threatening to take entire businesses offline for extended periods of time. Now more than ever, companies need to prepare for a ransomware attack by implementing fully-baked business continuity plans that incorporate off-site, real–time cloud backups. This ensures employees can immediately access clean versions of files on another device should disaster strike.”
