Automation Magazine  


Keeping ransomware attackers at bay is somewhat analogous to avoiding getting eaten in the jungle, notes Yogesh Shivhare, senior analyst at research firm IDC Canada. “If you’re in the jungle and a lion is chasing you, you don’t have to outrun the lion – all you have to do is outrun the other people,” says Shivhare. “The key point is that you have to make your organization a little more difficult to attack than others.”
