Palm Beach, FL – March 17, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Ransomware is a predominant cyber threat that installs on the victim’s computer either encrypting the files or locking the entire system, until a ransom is paid. The organizations have increased investments in securing the data, network, and endpoints from crypto-malwares such as ransomware and other advanced cyber threats. A report from Persistence Market Research said that Workplace digitization is growing at an explosive pace and this is particularly felt in the APAC region that can be considered the perfect example of a ‘mobile first, cloud first’ region. While this may well lead to greater ransomware attacks, it represents a limitless opportunity for widespread adoption of cloud based security solutions. Other regions are widely expected to follow APAC’s example in the adoption of cloud based ransomware protection software. It continued: “Small and Medium size enterprises did not see cyber security as a priority in the past as it was considered an unnecessary additional expenditure. The recent ransomware attacks such as WannaCry and Peyta have necessitated a larger commitment to online security and small and medium enterprises have begun to invest in cloud based security. Most ransomware is delivered via unauthorized links or through email attachments. These ransomware attacks are easily able to bypass traditional security solutions such as firewalls or antivirus software that may be installed. That is why enterprises are increasingly seeking out non-traditional solutions to avoid ransomware attacks in the future.” Active Companies from around the market with recent developments this week include: Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc. (OTCPK: ATDS) (OTCPK: ATDSD), CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRWD), SentinelOne, Inc. (NYSE: S), NortonLifeLock (NASDAQ: NLOK), Mandiant, Inc. (NASDAQ: MNDT).
Persistence Market Research added: “As these organizations move their entire or a part of their operations to the cloud, players actively involved in the ransomware protection market will also have to make the resultant shift. Startups have often come forward with innovative and out-of-the-box solutions as they are not tied down by legacy software and can seamlessly shift to emerging technologies such as cloud computing. A growing deployment of cloud based security solutions by both large enterprises and SMEs makes the cloud deployment type the most attractive segment in the global ransomware market, anticipated to increase 3.7x between 2017 and 2025. This segment will also register steady Y-o-Y growth rates throughout the forecast period and expand at a CAGR of 17.7% in terms of value.”
