Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware requires time to work its way across a network. For this reason, ransomware attacks are typically launched on weekends and late at night, when support staff are likely to be slower to become aware of a breach and are least able to organize a rapid and coordinated defense. The more lateral movement ransomware is able to achieve inside a target's system, the more time it will require to recover basic IT services and damaged files and the more information can be stolen and posted to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is designed to help organizations to carry out the time-critical first phase in responding to a ransomware assault by stopping the bleeding. Progent's online ransomware experts can assist you to identify and isolate infected devices and guard undamaged assets from being penetrated. If your network has been penetrated by any strain of ransomware, don't panic. Get help quickly by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
