Strong ransomware protection has become a must-have tool to protect companies of any size against malicious attacks and data loss.

Ransomware is the leading cybersecurity threat today. Annual attacks are in the hundreds of millions. The ransomware industry is currently a thriving criminal enterprise due to its lucrative potential, powerful encryption techniques, and the rise of ransomware as a service (RaaS).

RaaS eliminates the technical barrier to entry, allowing anyone with a few dollars to access what was once a complex process. The result is an ever-increasing threat landscape with no sign of slowing down.

We evaluated several options in the market to determine the five best ransomware protection solutions on the market. Each of them have merits, and ultimately the best option for you will be determined by your organization’s needs and budget. This guide can help you with that analysis.
