Protect your business from ransomware with Chrome OS

Crimes involving extortion viruses have increased sharply in connection with the global transition to hybrid work and remote work. Blackmail virus encrypts data and makes it inaccessible to users, which poses costly threats to organizations in all industries.

Chrome OS is a cloud first platform that provides protection against blackmail viruses by default. In fact, no blackmail virus attacks have ever been reported for Chrome OS devices, either from businesses, education, or individuals.

Chrome OS has integrated proactive security features that combat blackmail viruses

Data and files are automatically backed up in the cloud and can be restored: Chrome OS is a cloud first platform, which significantly limits the amount of data stored on the device and susceptible to blackmail viruses. All user data is backed up in the cloud. Should blackmail virus circumvent Chrome OS security measures, your user information and files can be easily restored almost immediately.

Executable files blocked: Executable files, which may contain blackmail viruses, cannot be run in Chrome OS. Chrome OS only works with selected malware from Google that has been crawled for malware.
