Prevent undetectable malware and 0-day exploits with AppGuard!

In recent years, the specter of ransomware has loomed large over businesses worldwide. The latest threat comes in the form of Black Basta ransomware, which has breached over 500 organizations globally between April 2022 and May 2024, according to a joint report from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Black Basta's modus operandi involves encrypting and stealing data from a wide array of sectors, including healthcare, critical infrastructure, and private industry. The repercussions of these attacks are severe, as evidenced by incidents like the disruption of healthcare services at Ascension due to a suspected Black Basta ransomware attack.

Emerging as a Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) operation in April 2022, Black Basta has targeted prominent organizations across the globe, from German defense contractors to healthcare giants and technology outsourcing companies. Its rapid rise and sophisticated tactics underscore the urgent need for robust cybersecurity measures.

While federal agencies provide recommendations for mitigating Black Basta attacks, it's clear that a paradigm shift in cybersecurity strategy is necessary. Rather than relying solely on detection and response measures, businesses must embrace proactive solutions like AppGuard to prevent ransomware attacks before they occur.
