Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware needs time to work its way across a target network. Because of this, ransomware assaults are commonly launched on weekends and at night, when IT personnel are likely to be slower to recognize a breach and are less able to organize a rapid and coordinated response. The more lateral movement ransomware is able to make inside a victim's network, the more time it takes to restore basic operations and scrambled 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 take the time-critical first phase in mitigating a ransomware attack by containing the malware. Progent's online ransomware engineers can help you to identify and isolate breached devices and protect clean assets from being penetrated. If your system has been breached by any strain of ransomware, act fast. Get immediate help by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
