Avast has launched a Ransomware Shield for businesses, offering organizations an extra layer of protection against ransomware attacks.
This will ensure businesses can secure their files and customer data, with proactive protection which prevents unauthorized access. The new feature is available as part of the Avast Essential, Premium, and Ultimate Business Security packages for businesses for both Windows and MacOS.
Despite observing a decline in ransomware attacks in Q4 2021 and Q1 2022, ransomware attacks are increasing globally once again. Avast witnessed a 24% increase in ransomware attacks in Q2 2022 in comparison to Q1 2022.
