Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware needs time to steal its way across a target network. Because of this, ransomware attacks are typically launched on weekends and at night, when support staff may be slower to become aware of a penetration and are least able to organize a rapid and forceful defense. The more lateral movement ransomware is able to make inside a victim's system, the more time it takes to restore 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 intended to help you to take the time-critical first phase in responding to a ransomware attack by putting out the fire. Progent's online ransomware experts can help you to locate and quarantine breached servers and endpoints and guard clean assets from being compromised. If your network has been breached by any version of ransomware, act fast. Get help quickly by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
