ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability AssessmentRansomware has become the weapon of choice for cybercriminals and malicious governments, posing a potentially lethal risk to companies that are successfully attacked. Current versions of ransomware target all vulnerable resources, including backup, making even selective restoration a complex and expensive process. Novel variations of crypto-ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Mailto (aka Netwalker), Phobos, Snatch and Egregor have emerged, displacing WannaCry, Cerber, and Petya in prominence, sophistication, and destructive impact.

90% of crypto-ransomware infections are the result of innocent-looking emails that have malicious links or file attachments, and many are so-called "zero-day" strains that elude the defenses of traditional signature-matching antivirus filters. While user training and up-front detection are important to protect your network against ransomware attacks, leading practices dictate that you assume some attacks will eventually get through and that you deploy a solid backup mechanism that permits you to recover quickly with minimal losses.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability Checkup is a low-cost service built around a remote discussion with a Progent security expert experienced in ransomware defense and recovery. In the course of this assessment Progent will cooperate directly with your Detroit IT management staff to gather critical information about your security configuration and backup environment. Progent will utilize this information to produce a Basic Security and Best Practices Assessment documenting how to follow leading practices for configuring and managing your security and backup systems to block or clean up after a ransomware assault.

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


  • Proper use of admin accounts
  • Appropriate NTFS and SMB (Server Message Block) permissions
  • Optimal firewall configuration
  • Secure Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) configuration
  • Recommend AntiVirus (AV) filtering identification and deployment
  • Split permission architecture for backup integrity
  • Protecting key servers including Active Directory
  • Geographically dispersed backups with cloud backup to Azure
The remote interview process for the ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Checkup service lasts about one hour for a typical small business and longer for bigger or more complex IT environments. The written report features recommendations for improving your ability to block or recover from a ransomware incident and Progent offers on-demand expertise to assist you and your IT staff to design and deploy a cost-effective cybersecurity/backup system tailored to your business requirements.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts or steals a victim's files so they are unusable or are publicized. Ransomware often locks the target's computer. To avoid the damage, the victim is required to pay a specified amount of money, usually via a crypto currency such as Bitcoin, within a brief time window. There is no guarantee that delivering the ransom will recover the lost files or prevent its exposure to the public. Files can be altered or deleted across a network depending on the target's write permissions, and you cannot reverse engineer the strong encryption technologies used on the compromised files. A typical ransomware attack vector is spoofed email, whereby the target is tricked into interacting with by a social engineering exploit called spear phishing. This makes 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 ransomware in 2013, and the monetary losses attributed to by the many versions of ransomware is said to be billions of dollars per year, roughly doubling every other year. Famous examples are WannaCry, and NotPetya. Current high-profile threats like Ryuk, DoppelPaymer and Cerber are more complex and have caused more havoc than older versions. Even if your backup procedures allow your business to recover your encrypted files, you can still be threatened by so-called exfiltration, where stolen documents are made public (known as "doxxing"). Because new versions of ransomware crop up every day, there is no guarantee that traditional signature-based anti-virus tools will detect a new attack. If an attack does appear in an email, it is critical that your users have been taught to be aware of phishing tricks. Your ultimate defense is a solid process for performing and keeping offsite backups and the use of dependable recovery tools.
