Ransomware is one of today’s most pervasive and dangerous cyber threats. The latest ransomware attacks can quickly spread throughout a company, impairing user productivity, and disrupting business.

CyberArk Labs analyzes 100s of new ransomware samples each day. In this paper, the team shares its evaluation of more than 3.5 million samples to-date – as well as an examination of the path to encryption and effectiveness of mitigation strategies including:
