Predict and Prevent
Ransomware is big business for criminals. The WFH trend has only made these attacks worse, with their frequency increasing 715%. Ransomware payouts have also grown, more than doubling to $312,500 from an average of $115,000. There’s no clear end in sight… unless we can slow the bad guys down.
The attack is delivered via a link or an executable with an enticing reason to download it. Once the victim executes the malicious software, their machines run the ransomware exploit, which identifies and encrypts key data on that or additional systems. The attacker at this point controls the victim’s machine and will not unlock it or share the decryption key until payment is received.
Elevate Security Platform prevents Ransomware with 5 key functions:
We build individual risk profiles of every user in your extended enterprise and their likelihood of falling for a ransomware attack.
Employee Feedback & Executive Communication
Automated notifications inform your riskiest, targeted users about how to recognize questionable links and software downloads. We warn them to be on the lookout for malware or phishing attacks so they stay on their toes.
We automate the workflow of creating risk-appropriate profiles for targeted individuals. Controls can be tightened or loosened by Elevate pushing updates to email/web gateways or endpoint security tools as needed.
The Incident Response team, Helpdesk, and security analysts receive insights into human risk to make educated and defensible decisions.
You can re-evaluate your data loss posture continuously, tracking the effectiveness of your tool and technology investments.
