ProSight Ransomware Vulnerability AssessmentRansomware has been widely adopted by the major cyber-crime organizations and bad-actor states, representing a potentially lethal threat to companies that are successfully attacked. Modern versions of crypto-ransomware target everything, including backup, making even partial restoration a complex and costly exercise. Novel strains of ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, DopplePaymer, LockBit and Egregor have made the headlines, replacing WannaCry, TeslaCrypt, and Petya in notoriety, elaborateness, and destructive impact.

Most crypto-ransomware breaches are caused by innocuous-looking emails that have malicious links or file attachments, and many are "zero-day" strains that can escape the defenses of traditional signature-based antivirus (AV) tools. Although user training and up-front detection are critical to defend against ransomware, leading practices dictate that you take for granted some malware will inevitably get through and that you put in place a solid backup mechanism that enables you to recover rapidly with little if any losses.

Progent's ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Assessment is an ultra-affordable service centered around an online discussion with a Progent cybersecurity consultant skilled in ransomware defense and repair. During this interview Progent will cooperate directly with your IT staff to gather critical data concerning your cybersecurity profile and backup environment. Progent will utilize this information to generate a Basic Security and Best Practices Report documenting how to apply best practices for implementing and administering your cybersecurity and backup systems to block or clean up after a crypto-ransomware assault.

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


  • Correct use of admin accounts
  • Assigning NTFS and SMB (Server Message Block) authorizations
  • Proper firewall configuration
  • Secure RDP connections
  • Recommend AntiVirus filtering selection and deployment
  • Split permission model for backup integrity
  • Protecting critical servers including AD
  • Offsite backups with cloud backup to Microsoft Azure
The remote interview process for the ProSight Ransomware Preparedness Checkup service takes about an hour for a typical small business and longer for larger or more complicated environments. The written report contains suggestions for enhancing your ability to ward off or recover from a ransomware attack and Progent offers as-needed expertise to assist your business to create an efficient cybersecurity/data backup system tailored to your business needs.

About Ransomware
Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts or steals files so they are unusable or are made publicly available. Crypto-ransomware sometimes locks the victim's computer. To avoid the damage, the victim is required to pay a certain amount of money (the ransom), usually via a crypto currency like Bitcoin, within a brief period of time. It is not guaranteed that delivering the extortion price will restore the damaged data or prevent its exposure to the public. Files can be altered or deleted throughout a network depending on the target's write permissions, and you cannot solve the strong encryption algorithms used on the compromised files. A common ransomware delivery package is spoofed email, whereby the victim is tricked into interacting with by means of a social engineering exploit called spear phishing. This makes the email message to appear to come from a trusted source. Another common attack vector is a poorly protected Remote Desktop Protocol port.

The ransomware variant CryptoLocker ushered in the new age of crypto-ransomware in 2013, and the damage caused by the many versions of ransomware is said to be billions of dollars per year, more than doubling every two years. Famous attacks include Locky, and Petya. Current headline threats like Ryuk, DoppelPaymer and TeslaCrypt are more complex and have wreaked more damage than older versions. Even if your backup/recovery processes enable you to restore your ransomed files, you can still be hurt by exfiltration, where ransomed documents are exposed to the public. Because additional versions of ransomware crop up every day, there is no certainty that traditional signature-matching anti-virus filters will detect a new malware. If an attack does show up in an email, it is important that your end users have learned to be aware of social engineering tricks. Your last line of defense is a solid scheme for scheduling and retaining remote backups plus the deployment of dependable restoration platforms.
