    "White House to announce ransomware task force — and hacking back is one option

    The Biden administration is preparing to announce a cross-government task force to combat ransomware attacks, following a series of high-profile hacks that underscored how cybersecurity weaknesses can wreak havoc on American society...

    Through the previously undisclosed task force, federal agencies are taking defensive actions, such as promoting digital resilience among critical infrastructure companies, and offensive ones, such as launching cyberattacks on ransomware operators...Agencies are also developing mechanisms for halting ransom payments made through cryptocurrency platforms, and they are coordinating all these activities with foreign allies..."

    Companies get hacked right & left, so far No security system prevails. CrowdStrike ransomware protection uses 'behavior blockers', others use definition based.
    Bragging rights hacker who hacks the likes of: Fortinet, Palo Alto Net, Zscaler, or Crowdstrike.

    Why would one be better than the other for protection? Is business easier to hack, because biz is not fully protected? Slow adoption of security measures, equals easier target?

    Is it like
    Fortinet, Palo Alto Net, Zscaler, or Crowdstrike. Similar to Windows Defender, Bitdefender, KIS. All offer protection, but you still can get infected. So Biz man buy one of :
    Fortinet, Palo Alto Net, Zscaler, or Crowdstrike software
