Every quarter, Malwarebytes release a 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 trust they’re protected, but the truth is, traditional AV solutions are continually shown as ineffective in blocking new malware threats. Malwarebytes know this and can report on this because of the half-million daily consumers who use Malwarebytes’ free remediation tool to clean their devices.

Thanks to our close relationship with Malwarebytes, we’re now able to offer a free trial of both Endpoint Protection and Incident Response for enterprises. The trial covers 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.
