Google issues a warning on evolving ransomware threats

Google has issued a warning on the evolving ransomware threats and said that tech companies should step up forward and control them with the latest technology. Essaying the same in his latest blog post, Phil Veneables, the VP and CIO of Google Cloud made it a point to reveal to the world the benefits of using Google Cloud, Software, and services to safeguard organizations from ever-evolving ransomware threats.

Using Google Chromebook as a defense against file-encrypting malware attacks makes complete sense says, Phil. As it is loaded with Chrome OS that is far more secure than Windows and Mac (of course to a certain extent).

Chrome OS-loaded laptops are designed to protect against ransomware and phishing attacks and that’s because the Operating system constantly updates its software against the latest threats and sandboxes them if anything is found. Also, the safe browsing feature verified boot up and the presence of Titan C Security Chips make Chromebooks a well-deserving computing device to be bought by the techies.

Now, to those using browsers for a long time such as school pupils, using a Chromebook makes complete sense as ChromeOS Devices are less prone to attacks whereas the use of Windows devices for browsing activities makes online users super-vulnerable to cyber attacks.

Alphabet Inc’s subsidiary claims that its chrome browsers are also immune to double extortion and triple extortion involving ransomware gangs who are always found evolving themselves as per the demand to extract more.

Thus, is Google claiming to offer the safest computing laptop to the world in the form of Chromebook?

Well, that is what is evident in the latest post penned by Phil Veneables!
