"The global rise in ransomware attacks demonstrates that all industries are now vulnerable to evolving cyber threats," said Michael Fimin, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix. "The increase in headline-making data breaches and the growing sophistication of ransomware attacks like WannaCry and NotPetya forces organizations to make IT security their top priority and seek new ways to protect their critical data against existing and future cyber threats. As a result, we expect a surge of interest in products that enable control over user activity and empower organizations to quickly detect and respond to aberrant behavior so they can protect their sensitive data against loss and exfiltration."
