Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware needs time to steal its way across a target network. Because of this, ransomware assaults are typically launched on weekends and at night, when IT staff are likely to take longer to become aware of a breach and are least able to mount a quick and forceful defense. The more lateral progress ransomware is able to manage inside a victim's system, the longer it will require to restore core IT services and damaged files and the more data can be stolen and posted to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is designed to guide organizations to complete the urgent first phase in responding to a ransomware assault by putting out the fire. Progent's online ransomware experts can help you to identify and isolate breached devices and guard undamaged resources from being compromised. If your system has been penetrated by any version of ransomware, don't panic. Get immediate help by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.

Work-from-Home workers typically use their personal computing devices and often work in a unsecured physical area.
