Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware needs time to work its way across a target network. For this reason, ransomware attacks are commonly launched on weekends and at night, when IT personnel may be slower to recognize a breach and are less able to mount a rapid and coordinated defense. The more lateral movement ransomware is able to manage within a target's system, the more time it will require to recover basic operations and scrambled files and the more data can be stolen and posted to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is intended to guide organizations to complete the urgent first phase in responding to a ransomware attack by stopping the bleeding. Progent's remote ransomware engineers can assist businesses to locate and quarantine breached devices and guard undamaged assets from being penetrated. If your network has been penetrated by any version of ransomware, don't panic. Get help quickly by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
