Firewall Best Practices to Block Ransomware Threats

Ransomware continues to plague organizations, with over a third of companies surveyed across 30 countries revealing that they were hit by ransomware in the last year. Attacks are increasing in complexity and adversaries are more efficient at exploiting network weakness, leaving them with a sizable clean-up bill: a global average of US$1.85M—more than double the cost reported last year. In this white paper, Sophos explores methods to block modern ransomware threats, how these threats work, and how to configure your firewall and network. This information is vital for all organizations—no country, sector, or vertical segment is safe.
