ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability ReportRansomware has been weaponized by cybercriminals and malicious states, posing a potentially lethal risk to businesses that are breached. Modern variations of ransomware go after all vulnerable resources, including backup, making even selective recovery a complex and expensive process. New versions of ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Mailto (aka Netwalker), Phobos, LockBit and Nephilim have made the headlines, replacing Locky, Spora, and CryptoWall in prominence, elaborateness, and destructiveness.

Most crypto-ransomware breaches come from innocent-looking emails that include dangerous hyperlinks or file attachments, and a high percentage are "zero-day" strains that elude detection by legacy signature-matching antivirus tools. While user training and frontline identification are important to defend against ransomware attacks, leading practices demand that you expect that some malware will eventually succeed and that you put in place a solid backup mechanism that enables you to recover quickly with minimal damage.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability Assessment is an ultra-affordable service built around an online discussion with a Progent cybersecurity expert experienced in ransomware defense and recovery. In the course of this interview Progent will collaborate with your Beverly Hills IT managers to gather critical information about your security profile and backup environment. Progent will utilize this data to generate a Basic Security and Best Practices Report documenting how to follow best practices for implementing and managing your cybersecurity and backup systems to prevent or clean up after a ransomware assault.

Progent's Basic Security and Best Practices Assessment highlights key issues associated with crypto-ransomware defense and restoration recovery. The review covers:


  • Proper allocation and use of administration accounts
  • Correct NTFS (New Technology File System) and SMB (Server Message Block) permissions
  • Proper firewall configuration
  • Secure RDP connections
  • Recommend AntiVirus (AV) filtering identification and deployment
  • Split permission architecture for backup protection
  • Backing up required servers such as Active Directory
  • Geographically dispersed backups with cloud backup to Microsoft Azure
The online interview process for the ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Report service lasts about one hour for a typical small business network and requires more time for larger or more complex IT environments. The report document contains suggestions for enhancing your ability to ward off or recover from a ransomware attack and Progent can provide as-needed consulting services to help your business to design and deploy an efficient cybersecurity/data backup system tailored to your business needs.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a variety of malicious software that encrypts or steals a victim's files so they are unusable or are made publicly available. Ransomware sometimes locks the victim's computer. To avoid the damage, the victim is asked to send a certain amount of money (the ransom), typically via a crypto currency like Bitcoin, within a brief period of time. It is never certain that delivering the ransom will restore the lost data or prevent its exposure to the public. Files can be altered or deleted across a network depending on the target's write permissions, and you cannot break the strong encryption technologies used on the hostage files. A typical ransomware attack vector is tainted email, in which the target is tricked into responding to by means of a social engineering technique known as spear phishing. This makes the email to appear to come from a familiar sender. Another common vulnerability is a poorly secured Remote Desktop Protocol port.

CryptoLocker ushered in the modern era of ransomware in 2013, and the damage caused by the many strains of ransomware is said to be billions of dollars per year, roughly doubling every other year. Famous attacks include Locky, and Petya. Current headline variants like Ryuk, Sodinokibi and Spora are more sophisticated and have wreaked more havoc than older versions. Even if your backup procedures enable you to restore your encrypted data, you can still be threatened by so-called exfiltration, where ransomed data are exposed to the public (known as "doxxing"). Because additional versions of ransomware are launched daily, there is no guarantee that traditional signature-based anti-virus filters will detect a new malware. If threat does appear in an email, it is critical that your end users have been taught to identify phishing techniques. Your ultimate protection is a sound process for scheduling and keeping remote backups plus the deployment of reliable recovery platforms.
