In 2016, ransomware continued its rampage across the world, tightening its hold on data and devices, and on individuals and businesses. The numbers speak for themselves:
62 new ransomware families made their appearance.
There was an 11-fold increase in the number of ransomware modifications: from 2,900 new modifications in January/March, to 32,091 in July/September.
Attacks on business increased three-fold between January and the end of September: the difference between an attack every 2 minutes and one every 40 seconds.
