One cybersecurity firm characterized the rapidly growing pace of cyberthreats across all industries as an “unprecedented and unrelenting barrage”. Within 24 hours of its report, the City of New Orleans and several other municipal organizations fell victim to ransomware attacks.

But it’s not just large-scale enterprises and public institutions that are under attack. Small and mid-sized businesses offer low-hanging fruit for opportunistic cyber criminals, who often use automation to widen their area of attack.

Small businesses, large enterprises, and public institutions alike have all struggled to respond decisively to the ransomware threat. Until recently, executives had few options – and fewer defenses – in their fight against cybercrime. Now, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solutions offer comprehensive, scalable ransomware protection services to organizations of all sizes.

 

What Exactly is Ransomware and How Does It Work?

 

There are several ways for a cyber intruder to take over your computer system without your knowledge. You won’t know about it until it’s too late.

The typical ransomware attack begins with the stealthy takeover of the victim’s computer. This may be accomplished through phishing, social engineering, or a sophisticated zero-day exploit – the goal is to have access to the network while remaining undetected.

Upon compromising the network, the cybercriminal can begin slowly encrypting important files. Most ransomware applications do this automatically, using a variety of different methods to evade detection. The process may take days, weeks, or months to complete.

Once the ransomware encryption algorithm reaches critical mass, it then locks users out of the network, displaying a ransom note demanding payment for a decryption key. Sometimes the demand is small – on the order of $500 to $1000 – and sometimes the demand reaches into six-figure sums.

Ransom demands are usually for bitcoins. “If one organization is willing to pay $500,000, the next may be willing to pay $600,000.”

Small sums make paying the ransom a tempting option, but a dangerous one. There is no guarantee that the cyber attacker will relinquish control of the network. Instead, executives who pay up reinforce the cybercriminal profit cycle. It is only a matter of time before the ransomware attacker strikes again.

Famous examples of ransomware variants include WannaCry, which spread to over 230,000 computers across 150 countries in 2017, and Petya. The WannaCry crisis targeted healthcare clinics and hospitals, causing untold damage and highlighted the risk that outdated IT systems represent in these industries.

Petya was unique because it did not encrypt specific files. Instead, it encrypted the local hard drive’s Master File Table, rendering the entire device unusable. There are dozens of other variants out there, and each one uses a unique strategy to take advantage of victims. NotPetya developed on Petya’s attack method, using the same vulnerability previously exploited by WannaCry.

Who Is At Risk of Ransomware Attacks?

 

Emsisoft reports that during the first half of 2019, 491 healthcare providers were hit with ransomware. The attacks are increasing and the demands are for larger ransoms.

Everyone. Although high-profile targets like hospitals and municipal institutions make headlines, thousands of business owners are defrauded every day. On average, one business falls victim to ransomware every 14 seconds.

Small and mid-sized businesses are especially vulnerable because they typically do not have access to the kind of comprehensive security resources that large enterprises can afford. Small businesses that do not rely on reputable third-party managed service providers make especially easy targets.

Cybercriminals have shown that they are willing to target hospitals and public institutions without shame. The greater the need for functioning IT systems is, the more likely the cybercriminals are to get paid. This is how the cybercrime profit cycle perpetuates itself.

What Can Small and Mid-sized Businesses Do About Ransomware?

 

Organizations caught unprepared have few options. Although cybersecurity experts correctly warn against paying the ransom, desperate business owners often pay anyways. But the relief is only temporary. 60% of small and mid-sized businesses victimized by cybercriminals do not recover and shut down within six months.

Preparation is key to successfully resisting a ransomware attack. Organizations that cannot afford to develop, implement, and deploy state-of-the-art security resources need to contract a reputable third-party vendor for the purpose.

Even enterprise-level organizations with tens of thousands of employees often find themselves opting for a managed solution instead of an in-house one. The cybersecurity industry is experiencing a widening talent shortage, making it difficult even for deep-pocketed businesses to hold on to their best security officers.

Introducing IronOrbit: Comprehensive Ransomware Protection

IronOrbit achieves best-in-class ransomware protection through a unique approach to cloud desktop hosting. Three key processes must work together flawlessly to guarantee ransomware resilience:

1.   Prevention

The best way to prevent a ransomware attack from taking place is preventing the initial malware deployment. Firewalls, email filters, content filters, and constant patch management all play a critical role in keeping malicious code out of DaaS systems.

Maintaining up-to-date software is more important than most executives and employees realize. Since NotPetya used the same attack vector as WannaCry, its victims entirely consisted of individuals and businesses who neglected to install security patches after the WannaCry crisis.

2.   Recovery

There is no way to guarantee 100% prevention. However, business owners and their IT teams can circumvent the damage ransomware causes with consistent backup and restoration tools. IronOrbit’s disaster recovery features can wind back the clock, reloading your entire suite of business systems to the state they were in just before the attack occurred.

3.   Remediation

Ransomware recovery cannot guarantee business continuity on its own without best-in-class remediation tools. Without the ability to trace the attack to its source in a fully logged environment, there is no way to tell whether the attack has been truly averted or not. IronOrbit uses state-of-the-art digital investigation tools to track ransomware attacks to their source and mitigate them.

What to Look For in a DaaS Provider

One of the misconceptions about Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solutions is that they are less secure than virtual desktop infrastructure.

A DaaS provider can address potential compliance and security issues. You just need to make sure that you know what your security requirements are so you can find a provider that is capable of fulfilling your business needs.

It starts with evaluating your DaaS options. You should also look at the providers’ confidentiality, integrity, and availability so you can make an informed decision.

Does your DaaS provider tick all the right boxes?

Is your DaaS provider reliable?

Before you move forward with your provider, it’s best to check a few aspects of their service to find out whether or not they are trustworthy.

Since you’ll store client’s information, a provider should have a confidentiality protection in place to limit other companies from accessing sensitive information. On-premise directories can be compromised when hackers gain access to the unified directory.

Aside from confidentiality, you should also evaluate the availability of your provider because the service may not be up and running all the time.

Your service can be interrupted due to internet connection issues. DaaS also allows employees to work remotely through a reliable internet connection, but if other tenants are sharing the same infrastructure, the performance of your company’s DaaS service will also be affected.

Is your DaaS provider secure?

Cloud services have now been proactive in implementing stronger security measures to keep cyber threats at bay.

However, on-premises systems and infrastructures only focus on the needs of your business. Make sure you check how cloud services are dealing with potential threats. Some providers can isolate your records so they won’t be accessible to other employees.

You can also configure your compliance and security requirements based on the specific needs of your company.

Benefits of DaaS

DaaS does not rely on an existing hardware infrastructure to get services to work. This service is a more affordable option because it can lower the total cost of ownership.

Even virtual desktops don’t require new hardware because you can just use the available technological resources. You’re not only saving money but a great amount of time installing replacements as well.

Since BYOD has its own policy, you need to keep in mind that data can be stolen or compromised anytime. If you allow employees to store business files on their unsecured devices, you’re increasing the risk of data breach. DaaS addresses this concern by storing your data in the data center.

Human error is one of the reasons businesses have been suffering from the data breach, data loss, and fraud. With traditional setup, you will need to carry around your device wherever you want to work.

DaaS eliminates this risk by keeping everything within the cloud. Virtual desktops give you access to your files on any device. With improved mobility, you’re also increasing the productivity of your business.

Choose a DaaS provider with a disaster recovery strategy in place because hackers can easily penetrate into your infrastructure if you fall short on providing strong security for your business assets.
