Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware requires time to work its way through a network. Because of this, ransomware attacks are commonly unleashed on weekends and late at night, when support personnel are likely to be slower to become aware of a break-in and are less able to mount a quick and coordinated response. The more lateral movement ransomware can make inside a target's system, the more time it takes to recover core operations 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 you to complete the urgent first phase in responding to a ransomware attack by putting out the fire. Progent's remote ransomware engineers can assist businesses to identify and isolate breached servers and endpoints and guard undamaged assets from being compromised. If your system has been penetrated by any strain of ransomware, act fast. Get help quickly by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.

At-home employees commonly utilize their own computing devices and usually operate in a poorly secured physical area.
