Nemertes has conducted research to analyse real-world cost data, including capital, implementation, and operational costs.

Most important, it includes ongoing operational costs, which are hard to factor into a business case until the IT staff actually must manage the provider in question. This paper documents those costs and provides the three different sample outputs from a cost model developed by Nemertes, populated with the research data.

Businesses large and small are under threat from increasingly aggressive and brutal ransomware attacks. Loss of access to critical files, followed by a demand for payment can cause massive disruption to an organisation’s productivity.
But what does a typical attack look like? And what security solutions should be in place to give the best possible defense?
This paper examines commonly used techniques to deliver ransomware, looks at why attacks are succeeding, and gives nine security recommendations to help you stay secure. It also highlights the critical security technologies that every IT setup should include.
Exploits are one of the main techniques used by cybercriminals to spread malware. They take advantage of weaknesses in legitimate software products like Flash and Microsoft Office to infect computers for their criminal ends. A single exploit can be used by myriad separate pieces of malware, all with different payloads.
Read this paper to learn more about exploits and how to stop them. It explores how exploits work, the exploit industry, what makes a good exploit in the eyes of the cybercriminals, and also how anti-exploit technology is a highly efficient and effective way to secure your organisation against advanced and unknown threats.
