As the threat landscape continues to evolve, US businesses face the escalating danger of ransomware and destructive attacks. Recent statistics reveal alarming trends, with the share of breaches caused by ransomware growing by 41% in the past year1. Additionally, these attacks took an average of 49 days longer to identify and contain compared to other breaches1. In parallel, the cost of destructive attacks has risen by over $430,0001. To counter these threats, US businesses need a robust security solution like AppGuard to fortify their defenses and mitigate the financial and operational impact of such incidents.
Ransomware attacks have become a significant concern for organizations of all sizes. The average cost of a ransomware attack stands at $4.54 million2. The financial toll includes not only the ransom demanded but also the expenses associated with incident response, recovery, and potential legal consequences. AppGuard's innovative security solution offers comprehensive protection against ransomware. By isolating each application in a secure container and utilizing advanced behavior-based detection techniques, AppGuard effectively prevents ransomware from encrypting critical files and spreading throughout the network. This proactive approach reduces the risk of costly downtime, financial losses, and reputational damage.
Destructive attacks, characterized by the intent to cause significant damage to systems and data, have also witnessed a concerning rise. The average cost of a destructive attack has surged to $5.12 million2. These attacks can paralyze operations, disrupt supply chains, and lead to data loss or corruption. AppGuard's granular control settings and application isolation capabilities are instrumental in mitigating the impact of destructive attacks. By restricting unauthorized access and closely monitoring application behavior, AppGuard prevents malicious actors from executing destructive actions, safeguarding critical resources and minimizing the financial consequences.
