What is Ransomware Protect?
  • It brings a whole new layer of security to your business. Within seconds the application identifies potential security breaches instantly blocking any sites which it suspects could contain ransomware/malware.
  • It uses a global graph of internet activity which categorises each part in terms of the security threat it poses.
  • You are given a more complete view of the internet which removes the blind spots in your security protection.
  • It works off a cloud based application meaning the solution can be deployed onto your network within minutes without the need to install any hardware or software.
How does it protect you against ransomware?
  • It identifies threats at a DNS level and can block the request before you even connect to the malicious site
  • If malware has managed to get onto your systems it can show a historical breakdown of the files it has reached
  • It can prevent it spreading between shared networks by pinpointing the source of the malicious activity and mitigating it to prevent further damage
  • It provides layers of defence which a single point product cannot do

What is Cisco Umbrella?

Cisco Umbrella is a cloud security platform that provides the first line of defence against threats online. The Umbrella security global infrastructure handles over 100 billion internet requests a day, which are analysed to learn where attacks are being staged even before the first victim is hit.

Cisco Umbrella DNS has the intelligence to see attacks before they launch by adopting a simple yet effective methodology: Learn- See- Block

The Cisco Umbrella security service:
  •      Is the first line of defence against threats like malware, phishing and command and control call-backs over any port or protocol—before threats reach you.
  •      Gives you the visibility to protect internet access across all devices on your network infrastructure, roaming users and all office locations.
  •      Amplifies existing investments by integrating with existing tools and feeds to extend protection and enrich your incident response data
  •      Investigates threat intelligence on domains IPs, file hashes and networks across the internet
Cisco Umbrella and Ransomware:

Do you know what you would do if you saw the dreaded message: ‘your personal files are encrypted, pay the ransom to retrieve your data’? Though no one ever expects to be hit by such an attack, it is predicted that ransomware hits a new victim every 10 seconds.

This type of cyber-attack has become an extremely lucrative criminal enterprise. While 54% of UK businesses are said to have been hit by a ransomware attack in the past year, over half of these eventually gave in and paid the ransom.

Targeted organisations often believe that paying the ransom is the most cost-effective way to get their data back — and, unfortunately, this may also be the reality. The problem is that every single business that pays to recover their files is directly funding the development of the next generation of ransomware. As a result, ransomware is evolving at an alarming rate with new and more

sophisticated variants. This makes defending your organization's data against ransomware more critical than ever.
