Over 50% of Hospitals Affected By Ransomware

A recent study shows that over 50% of America’s hospitals affected by ransomware…

When we say ransomware is becoming an epidemic, we mean it.  According to Health IT Outcomes, a recent study done by Healthcare IT News and HIMSS Analytics, found that more than half of healthcare organizations have been the target of ransomware attacks in the last 12 months.  Another 25% of those polled are uncertain how to tell if they’ve been affected.

We have said in the past that backing up your data is helpful if ransomware were to take place.  However, when we are talking about an entire healthcare organization, backing up every piece of data can be rather difficult.

The best way to prevent yourself from being a victim is to have a rock solid security software program.  The only security software program proven to block 100% of ransomware is Tech Sentry.  The Endpoint Suite edition of Tech Sentry provides the security software component, paired with patch management, driver management, and PC optimization.
