ProSight Ransomware Preparedness CheckupRansomware has been weaponized by cyber extortionists and rogue governments, representing a potentially lethal risk to businesses that are victimized. Current strains of ransomware target everything, including online backup, making even partial recovery a challenging and costly process. Novel versions of crypto-ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Mailto (aka Netwalker), Phobos, Snatch and Egregor have made the headlines, replacing Locky, Cerber, and NotPetya in notoriety, elaborateness, and destructive impact.

Most crypto-ransomware penetrations come from innocuous-looking emails with malicious hyperlinks or file attachments, and many are "zero-day" strains that can escape detection by legacy signature-matching antivirus tools. Although user training and frontline detection are important to protect your network against ransomware attacks, leading practices dictate that you take for granted some malware will eventually succeed and that you deploy a strong backup solution that allows you to recover quickly with minimal losses.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability Checkup is a low-cost service centered around a remote interview with a Progent security consultant skilled in ransomware protection and recovery. During this assessment Progent will work with your Boston network management staff to collect pertinent information about your cybersecurity configuration and backup environment. Progent will utilize this information to create a Basic Security and Best Practices Report detailing how to adhere to leading practices for configuring and administering your security and backup systems to block or clean up after a ransomware assault.

Progent's Basic Security and Best Practices Report highlights vital areas associated with ransomware prevention and restoration recovery. The review addresses:


  • Effective allocation and use of admin accounts
  • Assigning NTFS and SMB (Server Message Block) authorizations
  • Proper firewall configuration
  • Secure Remote Desktop Protocol connections
  • Recommend AntiVirus tools selection and configuration
  • Split permission architecture for backup integrity
  • Backing up key servers such as Active Directory
  • Offsite backups including cloud backup to Microsoft Azure
The online interview for the ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability Report service takes about an hour for the average small company and longer for larger or more complex IT environments. The written report features recommendations for enhancing your ability to block or clean up after a ransomware attack and Progent offers on-demand expertise to help you and your IT staff to create a cost-effective security/data backup system customized for your specific requirements.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a type of malicious software that encrypts or steals files so they are unusable or are publicized. Ransomware often locks the victim's computer. To prevent the carnage, the victim is required to pay a certain ransom, usually via a crypto currency such as Bitcoin, within a short time window. It is not guaranteed that delivering the extortion price will recover the lost files or avoid its exposure to the public. Files can be encrypted or erased across a network based on the victim's write permissions, and you cannot break the military-grade encryption algorithms used on the compromised files. A common ransomware attack vector is booby-trapped email, whereby the victim is lured into interacting with by a social engineering exploit called spear phishing. This makes the email to appear to come from a familiar sender. Another popular attack vector is a poorly secured RDP port.

CryptoLocker opened the modern era of crypto-ransomware in 2013, and the damage attributed to by the many versions of ransomware is estimated at billions of dollars per year, roughly doubling every two years. Famous attacks are Locky, and NotPetya. Current headline threats like Ryuk, DoppelPaymer and TeslaCrypt are more sophisticated and have caused more damage than earlier strains. Even if your backup/recovery procedures enable your business to restore your encrypted data, you can still be hurt by exfiltration, where stolen documents are made public. Because additional variants of ransomware crop up every day, there is no guarantee that traditional signature-matching anti-virus filters will detect the latest malware. If threat does show up in an email, it is important that your users have learned to be aware of social engineering techniques. Your last line of protection is a solid scheme for performing and retaining remote backups plus the use of dependable restoration tools.
