Ransomware

Automated. Made simple. At scale.

Ransomware is one of the top threats enterprises are facing

As the attack surface is widening and the skills needed to perform an attack are lowering, the risks of facing ransomware attacks are increasing and the total cost too, sitting in 2021 at $4.62 million.

The consequences can be dire since besides the downtimes induced by the attack – sometimes up to weeks – even the payment of the ransom isn’t guaranteeing companies to go back to normal.

Unfortunately, the ways attackers have to infect your devices are multiple and, most of the time, rely on human errors, such as infected emails or links. If awareness is growing amidst enterprises, these means of attacks are also increasing sharper, using modern technologies such as machine learning and automation to sophisticate their credibility.

As a result, trying to circumvent potential attacks while relying on manual actions is near-impossible and risk inducing severe damages to the survivability of your company. Orchestrating the connection between the different tools used to detect and quarantine any successful breach before they grow in criticality and automating these processes is the only way to face this threat properly, thanks to a Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response tool (SOAR).

Democratize SecOps in your organization.

Reduce the time to contain infected devices

Unusual activity monitoring on different points of your company’s endpoints, Firewall, and IDS/IPS helps detect the infection by ransomware at machine speed. As more time passes equals more corrupted devices and data loss, the ability to detect and quarantine infected devices at machine speed is crucial.

Strengthen the quarantine perimeter

Thanks to rapid response and automatic updates of rules across your internal and external monitoring tools, quarantine perimeters grow stronger and closer to threat, diminishing the impact on operations while the attack is managed.

Prepare for return to usual activity and future threats

Decision planning, according to the criticality of the infection, helps teams return to normal as fast as possible and with minimal impact on lost data, thanks to automatic backup restoral and scan updates.

Check a typical process

  • Observe Anti-virus and EDR alerts to detect suspicious activity undergoing;
  • Monitor Firewall DPI results and proxies logs for unusual outbound traffic and IDS/IPS for suspicious internal network flows such as encryption processes undergoing or devices sudden unavailability;
  • If abnormal behavior is detected, enrichment through correlation with SIEM logs, known artifacts, and IoCs is launched;
  • At this point, an incident ticket is created and elevated;
  • Results are cross-checked with Threat Intelligence and OSINT platforms;
  • If confirmed, devices are isolated from the rest of the internal network, and sensors are automatically updated with deciphered identification;
  • Ticket incident is updated with quarantine perimeters and decision tree according to the criticality of the incident;
  • Remediation planning with offline backups and scans are undertaken;
  • Return to normal with revamped defense and enriched log of attack.
