In the current scenario, cybercrime has become usual in the business ecosystem. France is one such country that has witnessed a huge explosion of ransomware attacks and is currently the third most affected country in the world (+255 per cent in 2020). Each year, these attacks cost companies tens of thousands of euros, for whom the financial stakes and reputational risks are very high. To help protect businesses from cyber attacks, Paris-based HarfangLab claims its software can make a difference.
Ransomware is a type of malicious software (malware) that threatens to publish or blocks access to data or a computer system, usually by encrypting it, until the victim pays a ransom fee to the attacker. The french cybersecurity company HarfangLab provides hunting software to boost detection and neutralisation of cyberattacks against companies endpoints.
