STEVE VISCONTI, PRESIDENT AND CEO, EXTENUA, APPEARS “IN THE BOARDROOM” ON SECURITYSOLUTIONSWATCH.COM
NEW YORK, June 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
Steve Visconti, President & CEO, Extenua, discusses Ransomware “In The Boardroom” on SecuritySolutionsWatch.com. “In May 2017, there was a global ransomware cyberattack as has never been seen before. This single attack affected more than 200,000 computers and wreaked havoc on financial institutions, healthcare organizations and transportation to name just a few. To put the problem in perspective, in 2015 the industry saw nearly 3.8 million ransomware attacks, whereas 2016 saw approximately 638 million attacks. 2017 is expected to see a triple digit rise over last year. Additionally, ransomware continues to morph. It is estimated there are over 32,000 variants currently. This is costing businesses billions of dollars and will likely cost lives if the industry does not take active steps to minimize its impact. This is a very serious problem which is why we developed a solution to protect your data in a way which is impervious to current iterations of ransomware,” said Mr. Visconti.
