This strategy increases the chances that the victim will end up paying the ransom. Whether the ransom is paid or not, the attack still impacts the target organization, and the damage may include:
Loss of critical data
Loss of consumer trust
Damage to reputation and PR nightmares
The United States suffered 65,000 ransomware attacks in 2020 – or over seven an hour. This year, a multinational automotive companay was reportedly hacked with ransomware by the DoppelPaymer gang, demanding a $20 million ransom. Colonial Pipeline recently paid $4.4 million after a ransomware attack that forced the fuel supplier to halt operations, causing fuel shortages in five US states. These cases clearly show why vulnerability in front of malicious software should not be taken lightly.

Your data is encrypted in each of its states
With SealPath, your valuable data is protected at rest, in transit, and in use. Whether it’s on a user’s computer, on an on-premises server, or in the cloud, the data remains encrypted regardless of its state. Even if a ransomware attack targets you, the sensitive data stolen is worthless to the attacker who has extracted it and intends to make it public for profit.

SealPath employs granular access control on protected data. This grants differing access to particular data, limiting access to sensitive data only to those in your organization who need it to do their jobs. With this Zero Trust approach, SealPath enables organizations to follow the principle of least privilege access, which is especially useful against malware that uses privilege escalation, a tactic used by ransomware hackers to exploit security oversights and access data normally unavailable to certain users.
Comprehensive security solutions
Other functionalities such as the ability to virtually revoke remote access to documents, exhaustive auditing of accesses and monitoring of blocked access attempts, limitation of access by dates or by IPs / subnets increase the organization’s control over the protected data and prevent external or internal attackers from accessing sensitive data.
