Ransomware continues to plague organisations, with over half of companies surveyed across 26 countries revealing that they were hit by ransomware in the last year.

Such attacks are increasing in complexity and are getting more efficient at exploiting network and system vulnerabilities, leaving organisations with a significant clean-up bill: a global average of an eye-watering US$761 106.

Modern firewalls are highly effective at defending against these types of attacks, but they need to be given the chance to do their job. In this white paper, we will discuss how these attacks work, how they can be stopped and best practices for configuring your firewall and network to give you the best protection possible.
