Traditional ransomware variants can bring these systems down by encrypting files that are vital to their operation. However, a new variant poses an even greater risk to critical infrastructure. The Ekans ransomware is designed specifically to take down critical services, making anti-ransomware protection even more important in these environments.

The right IT infrastructure is hybrid

Article | March 31, 2020

From time to time, we invite industry thought leaders to share their opinions and insights on current technology trends on the IBM Systems IT Infrastructure blog. The opinions in these posts are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of IBM. Gartner forecasts worldwide public cloud revenue will grow 17 percent in 2020[1]. While it’s clear that cloud is still being rapidly adopted, on premises and private cloud are growing as well. My team and I see this on a daily basis as we visit with enterprise clients. To quantify this information and measure its impact, IBM recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how organizations develop and implement their IT infrastructure strategies. Forrester conducted an online survey of 350 global enterprise IT decision makers across industries to explore this topic.
