Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware requires time to steal its way through a network. For this reason, ransomware assaults are commonly unleashed on weekends and at night, when IT personnel may take longer to become aware of a break-in and are least able to mount a rapid and forceful response. The more lateral progress ransomware is able to achieve within a target's system, the longer it takes to recover basic operations and scrambled files and the more information can be stolen and posted to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is intended to guide organizations to take the urgent first steps in responding to a ransomware attack by stopping the bleeding. Progent's online ransomware experts can help you to identify and isolate infected devices and guard clean resources from being compromised. If your network has been penetrated by any strain of ransomware, don't panic. Get help quickly by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
