The Emotet Trojan was considered one of the most common and dangerous threats to companies. The all-purpose weapon of cybercrime was mostly used by criminals for targeted espionage in companies and could now be smashed with technical support from our partner G DATA.
Fake emails, such as those sent by Emotet, continue to endanger and threaten entire networks. In this case, the malware spreads insidiously as a fake email that reaches you in the name of colleagues and acquaintances and thus appears particularly authentic. As soon as the request in the e-mail is followed and file attachments are opened or prepared links in the e-mail are clicked, the malware installs itself and loads further damaging software after infecting your system.
The danger of losing data as a result and letting criminals take control of your systems is real. Reports of major production downtimes due to the rebuilding of corporate networks after an attack such as by Emotet are already known and administrations can also be affected.
In this threat scenario, sensitised and attentive employees are particularly important. According to a study by ESI Thoughtlab, 87% of companies see untrained employees as the greatest weak point for cyberattacks. Together with our partner G DATA, we offer you helpful and sustainable training for your employees and prepare them for possible attacks with our cyber defence training.
By the way, it has just been proven that G DATA is the right partner in the area of IT security. G DATA was awarded the golden award for the best manufacturer in the field of "Malware Protection" by the AV Comparatives Institute. G DATA were the only participants to succeed in blocking every single one of the 20,351 malware samples tested.
