Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware requires time to work its way through a target network. For this reason, ransomware assaults are typically launched on weekends and late at night, when IT personnel are likely to take longer to become aware of a break-in and are least able to organize a quick and forceful defense. The more lateral movement ransomware can achieve inside a target's network, the more time it will require to recover core IT services and scrambled files and the more data can be exfiltrated to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is intended to guide organizations to carry out the time-critical first phase in mitigating a ransomware attack by containing the malware. Progent's online ransomware experts can assist you to identify and isolate breached servers and endpoints and guard clean resources from being compromised. If your network has been penetrated by any strain of ransomware, act fast. Get help quickly by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
