Preventing Ransomware Attacks with Host Ransomware Prevention

Ransomware has been shown to disproportionately target small and midsize businesses (SMBs), making these attacks the single greatest security threat facing them today. Unfortunately, whether due to cost or complexity, many SMBs have simply lacked the resources needed to effectively stop ransomware attacks, leading to devastating consequences. Host Ransomware Prevention, a component of the WatchGuard Host Sensor, enables organizations of all sizes to detect, an even prevent, ransomware attacks before the damage is done.
