It’s not just the ransomware that is a threat to consumers.
As much as a billion people around the world are infected with ransomware, and that’s a growing problem for businesses.
This week, Symantec reported that ransomware accounted for 20% of the ransomware infections in the first quarter of 2017.
The company estimates that 1.4 billion people are at risk of losing access to their personal data.
The ransomware that has hit Western Europe and the United States has become so ubiquitous that businesses are struggling to fight it.
In response, Symantiec said it is launching a ransomware-based payment system in the US, but it is not yet clear whether that will be available to consumers or businesses.
We are taking a step forward to address the issue, said Eric Oster, senior vice president and general manager for business operations for Symantech, in an interview with Recode.
It’s been two years since we launched the payment system.
What we’ve seen in the last year is that we’ve grown our market share.
But we haven’t seen that kind of adoption, and we are working with partners and partners to make that happen.
It will be a lot more affordable and more accessible for businesses to get the protection they need.
The new system will be launched on December 11.
It is also available for other countries, including Japan, India, Australia, and New Zealand.
A large number of these payments are now in transit.
SymantEC says its payment platform will be the world’s first one to integrate Bitcoin, a payment system that is decentralized and peer-to-peer, and will work with the Bitcoin blockchain.
The platform will include a variety of payment methods, including credit cards, credit and debit cards, prepaid cards, and a variety email and online payments.
Symantiech has partnered with a number of major merchants, including Target, Target Canada, and Amazon.
The payment system will also allow businesses to pay with Bitcoin at select retailers like Walmart and Walgreens, according to Oster.
“We want to be the first place in the world where customers can pay with the most secure payment method,” he said.
The payments will be made using the new payment platform, but Oster said that Symantep will also continue to offer merchants the option to accept payment in Bitcoin.
“You can pay for products with Bitcoin.
We will continue to accept Bitcoin,” he added.
For businesses, the new system could mean a new way to get paid, as more and more businesses are relying on their credit cards for payment.
While some companies like Amazon, Walmart, and Target have begun accepting Bitcoin as a payment method, others, like Staples, have not.
“It’s been a difficult transition to integrate payment in this way,” Oster told Recode, noting that some merchants are already struggling to integrate with Bitcoin payments.
“I think it’s very important to get businesses onboard,” he continued.
“The only way to move forward is to get customers onboard and make sure that they are confident in the technology and the tools they have.”
