ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability CheckupRansomware has been widely adopted by the major cyber-crime organizations and malicious governments, posing a possibly existential threat to companies that are breached. Modern versions of crypto-ransomware target everything, including online backup, making even selective recovery a complex and costly exercise. New variations of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Mailto (aka Netwalker), Phobos, Conti and Egregor have made the headlines, displacing Locky, Cerber, and CryptoWall in notoriety, sophistication, and destructive impact.

90% of ransomware infections come from innocent-seeming emails that have malicious links or attachments, and many are so-called "zero-day" attacks that elude detection by legacy signature-matching antivirus tools. Although user education and up-front detection are critical to protect your network against ransomware attacks, best practices dictate that you expect that some malware will eventually succeed and that you prepare a solid backup solution that allows you to recover quickly with minimal damage.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Assessment is an ultra-affordable service built around a remote discussion with a Progent cybersecurity consultant experienced in ransomware defense and recovery. In the course of this assessment Progent will work directly with your Dallas network managers to collect critical data about your security profile and backup environment. Progent will use this information to generate a Basic Security and Best Practices Report documenting how to apply leading practices for configuring and administering your security and backup systems to prevent or recover from a crypto-ransomware assault.

Progent's Basic Security and Best Practices Report highlights key areas related to crypto-ransomware defense and restoration recovery. The report addresses:


  • Correct use of administration accounts
  • Assigning NTFS (New Technology File System) and SMB (Server Message Block) authorizations
  • Proper firewall settings
  • Safe Remote Desktop Protocol configuration
  • Recommend AntiVirus (AV) tools selection and configuration
  • Split permission model for backup protection
  • Protecting key servers including AD
  • Geographically dispersed backups including cloud backup to Azure
The online interview included with the ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Report service takes about an hour for a typical small business network and longer for larger or more complex environments. The report document includes suggestions for improving your ability to block or clean up after a ransomware assault and Progent offers as-needed consulting services to assist your business to create an efficient security/data backup system tailored to your specific requirements.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a type of malicious software that encrypts or steals a victim's files so they cannot be used or are publicized. Crypto-ransomware sometimes locks the target's computer. To prevent the carnage, the target is required to pay a specified amount of money, usually via a crypto currency like Bitcoin, within a brief period of time. There is no guarantee that delivering the ransom will recover the lost data or prevent its exposure to the public. Files can be altered or deleted across a network depending on the victim's write permissions, and you cannot solve the strong encryption technologies used on the hostage files. A common ransomware attack vector is booby-trapped email, in which the target is tricked into responding to by means of a social engineering exploit known as spear phishing. This causes the email message to look as though it came from a trusted sender. Another popular attack vector is a poorly protected Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) port.

The ransomware variant CryptoLocker ushered in 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 annually, roughly doubling every two years. Notorious examples are WannaCry, and Petya. Recent headline threats like Ryuk, DoppelPaymer and Cerber are more sophisticated and have caused more damage than older versions. Even if your backup/recovery processes enable your business to recover your ransomed data, you can still be threatened by exfiltration, where ransomed data are exposed to the public. Because additional variants of ransomware are launched every day, there is no certainty that traditional signature-based anti-virus tools will detect a new malware. If an attack does show up in an email, it is critical that your end users have been taught to identify phishing techniques. Your ultimate protection is a sound process for scheduling and keeping remote backups plus the deployment of dependable restoration platforms.
