KP Snacks hit by ransomware


With each year that passes, the ransomware threat to both individuals and businesses seems to grow. As KP Snacks becomes the latest in a long list of high-profile companies falling victim, it’s clear that no one is safe. It’s never been more important for businesses to take steps to minimise the ransomware threat and protect their employees and their customers. However, in the majority of cases, this is much easier said than done.

When it comes to ransomware, business leaders should zero in on specific protection, but also zoom out to secure the entire IT stack. Achieving full visibility and defending from the network edge will likely be a priority for security teams moving forward. Leveraging DDI (DNS, DHCP and IPAM) sees DNS security come into play. DNS acts as the security control plane will give organisations the upper hand with a zero day strategy and enable them to protect their networks and their employees from the latest ransomware threats.
