Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware requires time to work its way across a network. Because of this, ransomware attacks are typically unleashed on weekends and at night, when support staff may take longer to become aware of a break-in and are less able to organize a rapid and forceful defense. The more lateral progress ransomware is able to make within a victim's system, the longer it takes 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 intended to help organizations to take the time-critical first steps in responding to a ransomware assault by putting out the fire. Progent's remote ransomware engineers can help businesses to locate and quarantine infected servers and endpoints and protect undamaged assets from being compromised.
