Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware needs time to work its way through a target network. Because of this, ransomware attacks are commonly launched on weekends and at night, when support personnel may take longer to recognize a penetration and are least able to organize a rapid and forceful response. The more lateral movement ransomware can achieve within a target's network, the more time it will require to recover basic operations and damaged files and the more information can be exfiltrated to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is intended to guide you to carry out the urgent first steps in mitigating a ransomware attack by putting out the fire. Progent's online ransomware engineers can assist you to locate and quarantine breached servers and endpoints and guard undamaged assets from being penetrated. 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.
