“For 20 years, we’ve been helping companies build the best IT security programs in the market by helping them integrate protection against the latest threats,” said Mike Gentile, President and CEO of CISOSHARE. “With ransomware and other email-born attacks growing in number, email encryption has become a vital tool our clients can use to protect their data.”
Identillect CEO Todd Sexton states, “Identillect is pleased to be the chosen email security provider of CISOSHARE. Their decision underscores CISOSHARE’s commitment to protect clients from becoming the next victims of ransomware. Email encryption is part of the layered security every IT manager should embrace because hackers are getting more aggressive and posing a greater threat than ever before.”
According to Datto’s State of the Channel Ransomware Report released this week, small and medium businesses in the U.S. (SMBs) paid ransomware hackers $301 million in 2016 to decrypt critical files. The report also found 99% of companies surveyed predict these attacks will continue to rise in the next two years. The report found the greatest financial strain caused by ransomware is not the ransom itself but the result of downtime and data loss. The industries targeted most often by cybercriminals were construction, manufacturing, healthcare, professional services, and finance. The report also found Software as a Service (SaaS) applications are a growing target for attack, no companies are immune including industry giants such as Microsoft Office 365 and G Suite. Mobile and tablet attacks are also on the rise, according to the report; these platforms can increase security with the Delivery Trust™ email encryption plug-in.
