Three Secrets to Stopping Ransomware Cold

Hello #ZscalerCXOCommunity! Looking forward to conversing with you all. I just participated in a discussion about ransomware dangers. Ransomware is bigger than ever. With over 80% of internet traffic encrypted, these threats are hard to detect until it’s too late. These attacks do damage in minutes (not weeks), and the only defense is prevention.

In this webinar, Bryan Lee, Deepen Desai and I look at ransomware evolution: • Its low risk and high gain make ransomware popular and powerful • Attackers have shifted from users and endpoints to entire companies • Attackers added data exfiltration, making all attacks a data breach

We also look at remedies: • Preventing attacks is the only reliable defense • Using SSL inspection and sandbox technology are key in preventing ransomware payload downloads • Reducing the attack surface prevents adversaries getting a foothold on the enterprise network.
