Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware needs time to work its way across a target network. For this reason, ransomware attacks are typically unleashed on weekends and late at night, when IT staff may be slower to become aware of a breach and are least able to organize a rapid and coordinated response. The more lateral progress ransomware can achieve within a victim's network, the more time it will require to recover basic operations and scrambled files and the more data can be exfiltrated to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is designed to guide you to take the urgent first steps in mitigating a ransomware assault by stopping the bleeding. Progent's online ransomware experts can assist you to identify and quarantine breached devices and protect clean assets from being compromised. If your system has been penetrated by any strain of ransomware, don't panic. Get immediate help by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
