Every quarter, Malwarebytes releases a new report on the threat landscape around the world. We like to review these and share the key takeaways with you, so you know what to look out for and why we may be recommending a specific security tactic.
Malwarebytes recently released their latest Cybersecurity Tactics and Techniques report and took a deep dive into what dominated the threat landscape in Australia, making predictions for 2018.
The key takeaways were:
- Ransomware volume was up in 2017, but trending downward
- What they can’t hold for ransom, criminals will steal instead
- Cryptomining is out of control
- Cybercriminals got creative with their delivery methods in 2017
Many customers think they’re protected, but the fact is, traditional AV solutions are continually showing ineffective in blocking new malware threats. We know this because half-million consumers everyday use our free remediation tool to clean the malware that others security vendors miss.
That’s why we are now offering a free trial of both Endpoint Protection and Incident Response for enterprises. We will cover 100 laptops for 30-days, providing a quick check for any malware lurking in your organisation. Want to get it organised? Contact the Computer Merchants team today.
