Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is designed to help organizations to complete the time-critical first steps in responding to a ransomware attack by containing the malware. Progent's online ransomware experts can assist you to identify and isolate infected servers and endpoints and guard undamaged resources from being penetrated.
