How OpenDNS Umbrella Protects Against Dangerous Ransomware

June 10, 2016

Are you looking for a highly effective way to shield your company from threats to its data? OpenDNS Umbrella from Alura Business Solutions does just that by offering real-time content filtering and much more. To demonstrate the power of this technology, we'd like to discuss how it can protect against undetected ransomware that poses a major threat to your enterprise.

First, we'll need to set the scene: let's say that an infected file or app is introduced into your business's system and your anti-virus software doesn't catch it. At this point, the ransomware is free to wreak havoc on your internal network. The ransomware sender is able to encrypt files and lock them using a secret key, all without you or your associates being aware of what's happening.

It goes without saying that this type of scenario can cause some serious trouble for your company in a very short period of time. Once the ransomware sender has created a key, you'll be at their mercy. They'll probably request a specific sum of money to send you the unlock key, and even if you pay it, there's still no guarantee that you'll receive it.

As a direct result of a ransomware attack, your business will likely face:

  • Downtime costs
  • Reduced productivity
  • Lost business opportunities
  • Business closure, in serious cases

To stop ransomware in its tracks, consider the Umbrella Package from Alura. This technology provides top-notch predictive protection against downloading infected files. What’s more, its sophisticated detection and monitoring features quarantine any malicious files that are found so that they can be inspected. Once the threats have been confirmed, they are then completely eliminated from the machine so that they can no longer harm your business.
