Ransomware

Staying one step ahead to avoid business disruption.
How we help

Security threat

Chances are, you’ve heard a lot about ransomware in recent years. You may even have experienced a ransomware attack in your business. It’s the no. 1 security threat on the minds of CISOs and with more complex strains and sophisticated delivery methods emerging all the time, it’s little wonder. Hackers are putting more effort into the commercialisation of ransomware – turning it into a commodity that’s easier to source and execute. Because of this, ransomware is no longer the sole concern of big businesses. The speed at which malware can be deployed means attackers can afford to fire indiscriminately in the hope of getting lucky.

Ransomware is a concern for businesses because of its impact, and ultimately what it will cost. Pay up, and it’s an instant financial loss or even risk double extortion. Don’t, and the economic impact of a stall in business operations caused by malware can equally add up. Not to mention the reputational damage if news of your attack reaches your customers or the public, or if sensitive data is leaked as the result of an attack. What’s more, statistics show that once an organisation is breached, they are more likely to be a target again in the future. Strong defences and deep analysis of vulnerabilities is key protecting your business and with that, customer trust.

How we help

Response time is everything – how quickly you quarantine the threat will stop or limit the encryption that occurs. Our real-time monitoring works in real-time to detect inbound threats and then help us to act fast. 

Our technology focuses on monitoring and protecting data stores where they reside, whether on premises or in the cloud. 

We help you pinpoint the financial impact of both historic or potential ransomware attacks, helping you to achieve smarter security economics by understanding spend versus risk. 

With SOC and SIEM services wrapped around our anti-ransomware technology, our service goes deeper than simply responding to a threat in the moment. 

Our incident analysis report looks into the root cause of any breach you’ve experienced or even near misses – interrogating every user action or vulnerability which could have allowed malware into the network. 

We keep asking questions until we find the full answer, lessening your chances of falling victim to another attack in the future. 

We make proactive recommendations about how to protect your business, highlighting communications and file types that could contain malware and combatting strategies that threat actors are choosing to adopt. 

Our experts can advise on user best practice for your business and identify risky user behaviour – such as repeatedly clicking malicious links – using log feed monitoring.

Liam opens an email attachment from a known client; unfortunately his client’s laptop has been compromised and he opens a document infected with ransomware.

The ransomware starts to encrypt his shared folders, but in a sub-second response his desktop is quarantined by our anti-ransomware system which alerts the SOC team in real-time.

The SOC team notified the client’s IT team and commence incident response processes, using their SIEM they performed root cause analysis which identified the entry method of the malware (via email). The SOC obtained a copy of the malware for analysis in their malware labs, they detonated the malware safely to study its behaviour and identify its spreading mechanism to find it was wormable (able to spread across the network on open ports to vulnerable systems). Armed with this knowledge the SOC guided the IT Team during the recovery process to ensure the malware was not persistent and did not reinfect the systems after recovery or reattempt encryption.

To further protect the client from future attacks, the SOC team deploy real-time vulnerability scanning agents on workstation and servers to ensure the hosts are hardened and patched to the latest level to protect against wormable ransomware.
