CyberArk Labs: Ransomware

December 18, 2019

Ransomware is a type of malware designed to infect machines, encrypt files and hold the needed decryption key for ransom until the victim submits the required payment. Ransomware attacks on enterprises and government entities – cities, police stations, hospitals and schools – are on the rise, costing organizations millions as some pay off the attackers to untangle themselves and restore vital systems.

This whitepaper research conducted by CyberArk evaluates what mitigation strategies are most effective against ransomware. One of the key findings is that when local administrator rights were removed and application control policies were in place with a solution like CyberArk Endpoint Privilege Manager, 100 percent of ransomware samples were prevented from encrypting files.
