Ransomware has topped the list of the most prominent cybersecurity threats organizations face today. The past year alone saw a notable jump (13%) in attacks that utilized data exfiltration. On top of this, Veeam’s 2022 ransomware trends report revealed that businesses are not only being increasingly targeted by ransomware but are also losing the battle to prevent and defend against it. According to the report, 72% of organizations had partial or complete attacks on their backup repositories in 2021, dramatically impacting the ability to recover data. Moreover, almost all attackers attempted to destroy backup repositories to disable the victim’s ability to recover without paying the ransom.
