LONDON, UK - INFOSECURITY EUROPE 2016 - June 7, 2016 – ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations, today introduced its new ransomware bundle for EMEA businesses to proactively prevent, detect and track malicious ransomware behavior in real-time, helping protect vulnerable resources before they can be compromised.
According to the 21st Internet Security Threat Report from security firm Symantec, the UK is the third most-likely country to be hit with ransomware attacks, which globally have increased by 35 percent in the last year. The report also revealed that 429 million consumers saw personal information leaked online last year as a result of security attacks on big firms, a 23 percent increase since 2014. In one notable breach, 191 million records were compromised in a single incident. At the same time, the number of companies failing to report the data breaches jumped by 85 percent.
Unlike other security monitoring solutions for IT, ExtraHop analyzes and characterizes all data in flight—client, network, application, and infrastructure activity and behavior—providing unmatched visibility into all East-West and North-South traffic to deliver the richest source of real-time security insights. The ExtraHop ransomware solution enables a positive and proactive security model, putting the power of pattern-based analysis and machine learning to work against malicious actors. ExtraHop now fills the gap left by security platforms that protect the perimeter, scan for attack signatures, or analyze log files – methods that have proven to be ineffective at early detection and remediation.
