KYND releases new Ransomware feature to help businesses reduce their risk of attack


KYND Limited, a provider of pioneering cyber risk management products, unveiled a new ransomware prevention feature that is now available to all KYND ON customers.

Ransomware attack notifications rose by 131% in 2019* and are predicted to become even more of a threat as businesses adapt to the new ways of working caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

KYND’s new ransomware feature, available to KYND ON customers, helps organisations effectively reduce their risk of suffering a ransomware attack and more effectively manage this growing threat in a simple and easy to understand way. Using KYND’s proprietary cyber risk technology the new ransomware feature provides instant insight into an organisation’s visible exposure to attack and provides targeted recommendations to help reduce this risk based on the specific vulnerabilities it has identified.

KYND ON continuously monitors a business’ cyber risks and immediately alerts them to new and potential vulnerabilities as they arise. This advanced and powerful, yet easy-to-understand service gives organisations the visibility and insight they need to identify their cyber risks and provides clear and simple instructions on how to mitigate them.

Andy Thomas, KYND’s CEO, says ” Ransomware is a plague on businesses around the globe, but a prompt approach to identifying and minimising obvious vulnerabilities can help any organisation reduce its risk of falling victim and its far-reaching impacts. Introducing the Ransomware feature for our customers is a meaningful step forward in our mission to #StopTheBad and make easy to understand and accessible cyber risk management available to every business on the planet.”
