Ransomware

We recently gathered data from roughly 100 Managed Service Providers (MSPs) serving nearly 160,000 small-to-mid-sized businesses (SMBs) across Australia and New Zealand.

We have published our findings in Datto’s State of the Channel Ransomware Report - ANZ to provide unique visibility into the state of ransomware from the perspective of the IT Channel and their SMB clients who are dealing with these infections on a daily basis.

The report provides a wealth of detail on ransomware, including year-over-year trends, frequency, targets, impact, and recommendations for ensuring
recovery and continuity in the face of the growing threat.

Let’s take a look at a few of the key stats from the report.

  • ANZ SMBs report more instances of multiple attacks in a single day than the rest of the world. (35 percent in ANZ compared to the global average of 26 percent)

  • 92 percent report clients have suffered from ransomware attacks in the past 2 years.

  • Fewer than 21 percent of attacks are reported to the authorities
