Ransomware Hot Line: 800-462-8800
Ransomware requires time to work its way through a network. Because of this, ransomware attacks are commonly launched on weekends and late at night, when support personnel may be slower to become aware of a breach and are least able to mount a rapid and forceful defense. The more lateral progress ransomware can achieve within a target's system, the more time it will require to recover core operations and damaged files and the more information can be exfiltrated to the dark web. Progent's Ransomware Hot Line is designed to help you to carry out the urgent first phase in responding to a ransomware attack by stopping the bleeding. Progent's remote ransomware experts can help businesses to locate and quarantine breached devices and protect clean resources from being penetrated. If your system has been breached by any strain of ransomware, don't panic. Get immediate help by calling Progent's Ransomware Hot Line at 800-462-8800.
