Fighting ransomware with network segmentation as a path to resiliency

Recent cybersecurity events involving the use of ransomware (WannaCry and similar variants) represent the latest examples highlighting the need for organizations to not only take an initial hit, but survive, adapt, and endure.

We need to do better; the methodologies and tools to do so are readily available.
