Market Trends of Ransomware Protection Industry

Cloud Deployment Plays a Major Role in Ransomware Protection

  • Cloud storage is not resistant to ransomware threats and is not foolproof. Ransomware can certainly affect cloud storage, especially if the cloud storage dealers are not proactively using anti-ransomware technology. In fact, ransomware can impact any and all internet-connected strategies. This includes IoT devices, like security thermostats, cameras, doorbells, and others like PCs, file, email, and data servers, and cloud-based servers, which performs as cloud storage.
  • Cloud storage vendors should constantly be evaluating, testing, and upgrading their security solutions and using multilayered defense methods. Organizations should ask merchants to share their precise and specific ransomware detection, quarantine, and removal procedures.
  • Organizations can also deploy anti-ransomware protection software on all devices, including cloud servers and cloud storage. That software should have redundancy and failover defense in case of a ransomware attack. Organizations are also required to have data backup and retrieval policies and plans that are really implemented and practiced. And (they should) conduct ongoing backups of all data as part of those disaster retrieval policies.
  • Further, it depends on sound design and architecture rather than intrusion detection and security analysis, security in the cloud is unique. Hackers attempt to take advantage of cloud misconfigurations that allow them to operate against your cloud control plane APIs and steal data out from under rather than breaking into the network to lock out of systems.

North America Holds The Largest Market Share in Ransomware Protection Market

  • The region is known for infiltration and cyber-attacks. For instance, the SamSam ransomware was used to attack Atlanta's IT infrastructure by infiltrating into the network, hiding its presence while it harvested credentials to spread to multiple computers before locking them up. It resulted in a mass shutdown of online city services and an estimated cost of at least USD 2.6 million in clean-up and response.
  • Further, in September 2023, The FBI is warning businesses in the United States to be on the lookout for dual ransomware attacks, in which the same organization is targeted more than once in quick succession. The FBI also stated that a variety of ransomware tools are being used in various combinations, with potentially disastrous consequences for targeted businesses. "The use of dual ransomware variants resulted in data encryption, exfiltration, and financial losses as a result of ransom payments.
  • There is a continued rise in the threats from other nations which try to affect the critical infrastructure of the US, WannaCry was one such target ransomware where Park Jin-hook, a North Korean national, was charged for being part of a WannaCry attack undertaken on behalf of the North Korean government. Such actions have pushed organizations to improve the security segment and strengthen their IT security by updating the services.
  • Moreover, in November 2023, Malwarebytes, a company that provides real-time cyber protection, announced the launch of ThreatDown, a product family that provides effective, easy-to-use cybersecurity to IT-constrained organizations.
