ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability AssessmentRansomware has been widely adopted by the major cyber-crime organizations and bad-actor governments, posing a possibly lethal threat to companies that fall victim. Current strains of crypto-ransomware target everything, including online backup, making even selective restoration a challenging and expensive exercise. New strains of ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, DopplePaymer, LockBit and Nephilim have emerged, replacing WannaCry, Spora, and CryptoWall in notoriety, elaborateness, and destructiveness.

Most crypto-ransomware penetrations are caused by innocuous-looking emails that have dangerous links or attachments, and many are so-called "zero-day" strains that can escape the defenses of legacy signature-based antivirus (AV) filters. Although user training and up-front detection are important to defend against ransomware attacks, best practices demand that you expect that some malware will eventually get through and that you implement a strong backup mechanism that allows you to repair the damage quickly with little if any damage.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability Assessment is an ultra-affordable service built around an online discussion with a Progent cybersecurity consultant experienced in ransomware protection and recovery. In the course of this interview Progent will collaborate with your Dallas IT managers to collect pertinent data concerning your security setup and backup environment. Progent will use this information to produce a Basic Security and Best Practices Assessment documenting how to follow best practices for configuring and managing your security and backup systems to prevent or recover from a ransomware attack.

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


  • Effective use of admin accounts
  • Appropriate NTFS (New Technology File System) and SMB (Server Message Block) permissions
  • Proper firewall setup
  • Secure Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) configuration
  • Recommend AntiVirus tools identification and configuration
  • Split permission model for backup integrity
  • Backing up key servers including AD
  • Geographically dispersed backups including cloud backup to Microsoft Azure
The remote interview for the ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Report service lasts about an hour for the average small business and requires more time for bigger or more complex IT environments. The written report includes recommendations for enhancing your ability to block or clean up after a ransomware attack and Progent can provide on-demand consulting services to assist you and your IT staff to design and deploy an efficient security/data backup system tailored to your business requirements.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts or deletes a victim's files so they are unusable or are made publicly available. Crypto-ransomware often locks the target's computer. To prevent the damage, the victim is required to send a certain ransom, typically in the form of a crypto currency such as Bitcoin, within a short period of time. It is never certain that delivering the ransom will restore the lost data or prevent its exposure to the public. Files can be encrypted or deleted across a network based on the victim's write permissions, and you cannot solve the military-grade encryption technologies used on the hostage files. A typical ransomware delivery package is booby-trapped email, in which the user is tricked into interacting with by means of a social engineering exploit known as spear phishing. This makes the email message to appear to come from a familiar source. Another popular vulnerability is an improperly protected Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) port.

CryptoLocker opened the modern era of crypto-ransomware in 2013, and the damage caused by the many strains of ransomware is estimated at billions of dollars per year, more than doubling every two years. Famous examples include WannaCry, and Petya. Recent high-profile variants like Ryuk, DoppelPaymer and TeslaCrypt are more elaborate and have wreaked more havoc than earlier versions. Even if your backup/recovery processes permit your business to recover your ransomed data, you can still be threatened by exfiltration, where stolen data are exposed to the public (known as "doxxing"). Because new variants of ransomware crop up every day, there is no guarantee that conventional signature-based anti-virus tools will detect the latest malware. If threat does appear in an email, it is critical that your end users have been taught to be aware of phishing tricks. Your last line of protection is a solid scheme for scheduling and retaining offsite backups and the deployment of dependable recovery platforms.
