Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware requires time to steal its way through a target network. Because of this, ransomware assaults are typically launched on weekends and at night, when IT personnel are likely to be slower to recognize a breach and are least able to mount a rapid and coordinated response. The more lateral progress ransomware is able to make inside a victim's network, the more time it will require to restore basic IT services and damaged files and the more information can be stolen and posted to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is intended to help organizations to carry out the urgent first phase in mitigating a ransomware attack by containing the malware. Progent's remote ransomware experts can assist you to locate and quarantine breached servers and endpoints and protect undamaged resources from being penetrated.
