Roughly 60 percent of businesses that fall victim to malware or ransomware will go out of business due to the public notoriety, loss of confidence from customers, or loss of data, according to Hal Lonas, Webroot's CTO.

Organizations should also adopt a layered approach to security, which Lonas said should encompass installing a next-generation endpoint to provide better protection. A network-layered defense system and valid threat intelligence are also vital in this process, according to Lonas.
