Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware requires time to steal its way across a network. Because of this, ransomware assaults are typically unleashed on weekends and at night, when IT personnel may be slower to become aware of a break-in and are less able to organize a quick and coordinated response. The more lateral movement ransomware is able to manage within a victim's network, the more time it will require to recover basic operations and damaged files and the more data can be exfiltrated to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is intended to assist organizations to complete the time-critical first phase in mitigating a ransomware attack by putting out the fire. Progent's online ransomware engineers can help you to identify and isolate breached servers and endpoints and protect undamaged resources from being compromised. If your network has been penetrated by any strain of ransomware, don't panic. Get help quickly by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
