February 15, 2017, Los Angeles. VEEDog, a leading provider of IT security products, has developed a breakthrough product that defeats the effort of cyber criminals to encrypt computers and hold them hostage for ransom.
Ransomware, the newest form of malicious software, is designed to block access to a computer until a sum of money is paid. As ransomware has matured as a form of malware, the number of attacks and the amount of ransom paid to cyber criminals has skyrocketed. Tens of thousands of ransomware attacks are now occurring monthly, which generated an estimated one billion dollars in ransom to cyber criminals in 2016 according to VEEDog’s Founder and Chairman, Daniel Lorch.
“We are delighted to bring this new cyber security product to market,” Lorch said. “The cyber-criminal's goal is to lock your computer and extort money. Not on our watch. VEEDog destroys any hope their software has of working and ensures control of your system remains with you.”
VEEDog was developed specifically to block the latest ransomware threats on Microsoft Operating systems and stop them cold. No matter how it gets on the computer -- email attachment, infected website, compromised thumb drive -- if someone clicks on it, VEEDog stops it from ransoming files.
The new VEEDog ransomware blocker is available on Amazon, where it can be downloaded and installed on customers' computers with the click of a mouse -- goo.gl/0a5edV.
