Ransomware: Are Macs Better Protected Than Windows Machines?

Presented by

Karen Crowley, Director, Solutions Marketing and Guest Speaker Miri Peer, Director, Product Management at Deep Instinct

About this talk

Since 2021, there has been a sharp rise in malware developed to attack Macs, including ElectroRAT, Silver Sparrow, XLoader, and more. These new malware strains have paved the way for a future with more sophisticated and profitable attacks aimed at macOS. Macs do have several built-in security advantages, but these are becoming less significant because of two trends: malware increasingly targeting browser plugins, not the underlying OS, and malware developers creating cross-platform applications independent of the operating system. In this session, we will explore the gaps and opportunities.
