Ransomware detection and recovery tools and techniques are getting better. Unfortunately, so are ransomware developers. They are making ransomware harder to find and encrypted files harder to recover.

It works in a linear fashion, which gives security tools and teams an opportunity to limit damage once ransomware is detected. Now we’re seeing signs that ransomware creators are making their craft less predictable.
