There have been 4,000 ransomware attacks per day in 2016 according to the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team. This type of malware has grown in popularity because it is relatively easy to profit from, and difficult to defend against. The unfortunate fact is that even with great perimeter defenses on your network, the likelihood of ransomware getting in is still pretty high. Having a plan in place to shut down ransomware attacks in progress, and recover lost data, is a crucial part of any modern security practice.

In this webinar, we'll discuss methods of detecting ransomware attacks in progress on your network, and how you can respond quickly and minimize damage. Methods discussed will include:

  • Watching for suspicious "READ" and "WRITE" activity in connected storage
  • Noticing unusual increases traffic between storage and individual clients
  • Detecting invalid file types, or file types where they don't belong
