The task of tackling the ever-present threat of ransomware comprises three key factors; prevention, protection and removal.
Your systems are constantly checked, ensuring any issues are addressed immediately. Closing off attack vectors before they can be utilised.
Advanced email security technology is used to identify suspicious messages and remove them. Suspicious attachments are also removed and deleted before they reach you.
A comprehensive backup is also provided. All your data is stored safely, offsite and in secure cloud servers.
No technology is ever as effective as proper vigilance. To this end, we can also educate your end-users on the most commonly used methods of ransomware distribution such as phishing scams and other attempts to either steal their information or trick them into downloading malicious software.
- Second to prevention but equally important is protection. Should ransomware reach your organisation’s network, our solutions provide:
- Real-time monitoring and threat detection.
- Exploit blocking which will stop ransomware viruses from spreading.
- Zero-day attack prevention using cutting-edge machine learning.
- Indicators of Attack (IOA) discovery to identify suspicious activity stemming from yet unknown ransomware.
- Real-time administrator alerts so you are notified or potential threats immediately.
In the event of a ransomware attack, it is important to isolate and remove the ransomware expediently.
The first step will be to isolate the threat, disconnecting any infected machines from the network.
The investigation will then begin, establishing both the scale and the kind of ransomware utilised in the attack. Once the method of attack has been determined, through an investigation of your email servers and web usage our team will work to prevent any of duplications whilst working to recover any locked data in order to ensure the continuity of your business.
What is the best protection against ransomware?
The most effective protection is vigilance. Make sure your team is knowledgeable about the most common ransomware attack vectors and how to prevent ransomware from infecting your systems. Beyond that, installing anti-ransomware protection and having effective backup solutions in case of a successful attacks are the best defences against ransomware.
How does an organisation protect against ransomware?
Ransomware can easily spread between machines so protecting against it should be taken very seriously. Like any threat to a business, the key is to be proactive. Invest in training and anti-ransomware solutions ahead of time rather than spending twice as much later trying to recover from a major ransomware attack.
What is managed ransomware protection?
Managed ransomware protection, also called Ransomware Protection as a Service (RPaaS), refers to ongoing ransomware protection provided as a service by a third-party like Carden IT Services. As part of managed ransomware protection, we constantly monitor your organisation’s endpoints and network infrastructure for signs of ransomware attempts, utilising automated alerts and scripts to address vulnerabilities immediately, and use cloud backup ransomware protection to backup up recoverable copies of ay data at risk of being encrypted.
