ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability ReportRansomware has become the weapon of choice for the major cyber-crime organizations and malicious governments, representing a potentially lethal threat to businesses that are breached. Current variations of crypto-ransomware go after everything, including online backup, making even partial restoration a challenging and expensive exercise. New versions of ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, Phobos, Snatch and Egregor have made the headlines, displacing WannaCry, TeslaCrypt, and CryptoWall in prominence, sophistication, and destructive impact.

Most ransomware breaches come from innocuous-looking emails that have malicious links or attachments, and many are so-called "zero-day" attacks that can escape the defenses of legacy signature-matching antivirus (AV) filters. While user education and up-front identification are important to protect your network against ransomware, best practices dictate that you take for granted some attacks will inevitably succeed and that you put in place a strong backup mechanism that allows you to recover quickly with minimal damage.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability Assessment is a low-cost service built around a remote discussion with a Progent security consultant skilled in ransomware defense and repair. During this assessment Progent will cooperate with your Atlanta IT management staff to collect pertinent information about your cybersecurity posture and backup processes. Progent will use this information to generate a Basic Security and Best Practices Assessment detailing how to apply best practices for implementing and managing your security and backup systems to block or recover from a ransomware attack.

Progent's Basic Security and Best Practices Report focuses on vital areas associated with ransomware prevention and restoration recovery. The review addresses:


  • Correct use of admin accounts
  • Assigning NTFS (New Technology File System) and SMB (Server Message Block) permissions
  • Proper firewall setup
  • Secure RDP connections
  • Guidance for AntiVirus tools identification and configuration
  • Split permission model for backup protection
  • Backing up required servers such as AD
  • Offsite backups with cloud backup to Microsoft Azure
The online interview included with the ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability Report service takes about an hour for the average small business network and longer for larger or more complex IT environments. The written report features recommendations for enhancing your ability to block or clean up after a ransomware assault and Progent can provide on-demand expertise to assist you and your IT staff to design and deploy a cost-effective security/data backup solution customized for your specific needs.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a form of malicious software that encrypts or steals a victim's files so they cannot be used or are made publicly available. Crypto-ransomware sometimes locks the target's computer. To prevent the carnage, the victim is asked to send a specified amount of money (the ransom), usually via a crypto currency such as Bitcoin, within a brief period of time. There is no guarantee that paying the ransom will restore the damaged files or prevent its exposure to the public. Files can be encrypted or erased across a network based on the victim's write permissions, and you cannot break the military-grade encryption technologies used on the hostage files. A typical ransomware attack vector is booby-trapped email, in which the user is tricked into responding to by a social engineering exploit called spear phishing. This causes the email message to look as though it came from a familiar source. Another common vulnerability is an improperly secured RDP port.

CryptoLocker ushered in the modern era of crypto-ransomware in 2013, and the damage caused by different strains of ransomware is estimated at billions of dollars annually, roughly doubling every other year. Famous examples are Locky, and NotPetya. Current high-profile threats like Ryuk, Sodinokibi and TeslaCrypt are more complex and have caused more damage than older versions. Even if your backup processes enable you to restore your ransomed files, you can still be hurt by so-called exfiltration, where stolen documents are made public (known as "doxxing"). Because additional variants of ransomware crop up daily, there is no guarantee that conventional signature-based anti-virus tools will detect a new malware. If threat does show up in an email, it is critical that your users have been taught to be aware of phishing techniques. Your last line of defense is a sound process for scheduling and keeping remote backups plus the deployment of dependable restoration tools.
