Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware needs time to work its way across a network. For this reason, ransomware attacks are commonly launched on weekends and late at night, when support personnel may be slower to recognize a penetration and are least able to organize a quick and coordinated defense. The more lateral progress ransomware is able to make inside a victim's system, the more time it will require to restore core IT services and scrambled files and the more data can be exfiltrated to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is intended to help organizations to complete the urgent first phase in mitigating a ransomware attack by putting out the fire. Progent's online ransomware engineers can help businesses to locate and quarantine infected servers and endpoints and guard undamaged resources from being compromised. If your network has been penetrated by any strain of ransomware, don't panic. Get immediate help by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
