In this Help Net Security video, Steve Winterfeld, Advisory CISO at Akamai, discusses the recent surge of ransomware attacks in the U.S. and how it relates to microsegmentation.
Recovery after a security breach happens 11 hours faster with segmentation.
For those who have implemented segmentation across six mission-critical areas, it takes an average of 4 hours to stop a ransomware attack, compared to 15 hours for those with segmentation against only one asset.
This is significant as recent cyber-attacks have significantly impacted operations, with the notable ransomware hack that affected MGM Resorts, resulting in systems being shut down for ten days after the attack.
