Ransomware Attacks are not problem for us


If there is one characteristic that defines cybercrime today, it is the capacity to evolve and adapt to new environments and the ability to find ways of evading the cybersecurity measures taken by victims. 

Ransomware is no exception. One of the main features of ransomware as a threat, in addition to kidnapping data, is that it is constantly reinventing itself to persist over time and ineffectiveness.

This type of malicious software has evolved greatly since it began, and today there is a wide variety of families in existence, giving rise to new, more sophisticated strains.
