Cloud PCs for Ransomware Recovery

Schedule Demo

Ransomware Attacks Are Rising in Prevalence and the Cost Can be Catastrophic

Despite billions of dollars being spent to thwart ransomware attacks, an astonishing 66% of companies were victims of ransomware in 2021 according to Sophos’ report “The State of Ransomware 2022.” Ransomware recovery takes a minimum of 30 days. Can your business afford 30+ days of downtime?

Everything about ransomware is on the rise –  volume of attacks, threat sophistication, ransom demands and average ransom payments. Attacks happen against virtually every industry – no organization is immune. The growing incident-rate data tells us an attack is almost inevitable, so it’s not enough to take defensive steps. Ransomware recovery must be a focus because:

  • Recovering from an attack takes 1 month on average, while your business productivity plummets
  • During the attack, employees are largely unproductive because their PCs are infected
  • For an organization of 1000 people, losing productivity for a month can cost millions of dollars
  • Companies, supply chains and reputations can be devastated by a ransomware attack

Whether or not a ransom is paid, the cost of lost productivity during the ransomware recovery process can cost millions.

Inexpensive and Immediate Cloud PC Access For Ransomware Recovery for Thousands of Users

Most enterprises have already taken defensive steps against security breaches and ransomware. But as the saying goes, the best defense is a great offense. Cloud PCs are your offensive strategy for ransomware recovery.

According to IBM and the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a ransomware attack is $4.54 million. For a 1000 person organization, average loss in productivity during a month of downtime can equal upwards of $10m. And this does not consider damage to your brand’s reputation.
