I spoke with Simon Jelley, GM & VP of Product at Veritas Technologies, about why ransomware is so difficult to defend against, and his suggestions for critical best practices to lessen the threat.

Among the topics we discussed:

  • What’s the current state of ransomware?
  • Why does security software alone keep falling short?
  • Why is paying the ransom never the right thing to do?
  • How do organizations prepare for a ransomware attack in such a way that they can avoid paying the ransom?
