Stop Ransomware in its tracks with Intercept X
What is ransomware?
Ransomware is the number one malware attack affecting businesses today. It can creep into your organisation via email and hold your business-critical systems ransom – draining productivity and costing you millions. Cybercriminals are constantly inventing new forms of highly disruptive ransomware, designed to navigate around security systems that are already in place. However, there is a nifty piece of software called Intercept X that can protect your business from these cyber-attacks. It spots it, stops it and immediately reverses the initial effects of the attack.
How does intercept X protect against ransomware?
Say you open an e-mail attachment you believe to be a supplier, but actually, it’s not your supplier. It’s a cybercriminal posing as your supplier, and that innocent attachment you just opened, is infected with ransomware.
Instantly the ransomware will call out a net command and control server to pull down encryption keys, opening up all of your files, encrypting them and rendering them useless.
If you haven’t any anti-ransomware protection on your computer, there is no way back from here. Restoring files can take days and isn’t always up to date. In a worst-case scenario, the only way files can be restored is to pay the ransom, which can be anything up to £100,000.
With Intercept X – it’s advanced technology searches for signs that files are being encrypted in mass. If it sees this happening, it instantly stops the process, isolates the hard disk and rolls back any changes that have been made. Once Intercept X has completed its process, you can then get back to work, without the loss of data or system downtime.
