Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware needs time to steal its way across a target network. For this reason, ransomware attacks are typically launched on weekends and late at night, when support personnel are likely to take longer to become aware of a breach and are less able to mount a rapid and forceful response. The more lateral progress ransomware is able to manage within a victim's system, the longer it takes to restore core IT services and damaged files and the more data can be stolen and posted to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is designed to help organizations to complete the time-critical first steps in responding to a ransomware assault by putting out the fire. Progent's online ransomware engineers can assist you to locate and isolate infected devices and guard clean resources from being penetrated.
