How To Stay Protected Against RANSOMWARE

January 29, 2018

Protection technologies to help keep you secure
against ransomware


To stop ransomware you need to have effective, advanced protection in place at every stage of an attack.


Securing your endpoints


Intercept X utilizes the unique CryptoGuard techn

 

ology to stop ransomware attacks in their tracks. It works by detecting and stopping ransomware from encrypting your files, including the recent Wanna ransomware outbreak. Intercept X complements your existing security, blocking processes that attempt to make unauthorized modifications to your data.

 

Stopping email threats


The best defense against booby-trapped emails is your email gateway. Anti-spam technologies stop ransomware emails, while antivirus scans for and blocks email-borne threats. Blocking emails with macro attachments can help you avoid another common ransomware technique. Time-of-Click technology stops you and your users from clicking through to infected websites – even if they were clean when the email entered your inbox.

 

Stopping web threats


Web threats are neutralized at the firewall and web gateway. URL filtering blocks websites hosting ransomware, as well as their command and control servers. And by enforcing strict controls you can stop ransomware-related files from being downloaded at all. Cloud sandboxing at both the email and web gateway blocks zero-day advanced threats, including ransomware. It’s like having your own private malware lab that runs suspicious files to determine behavior.

 

Protecting your servers


Server whitelisting and lockdown keep your servers secure by whitelisting authorized applications and identifying what they can change and update – all other attempts to make changes are automatically blocked, stopping ransomware from taking action. Malicious traffic detection stops ransomware from contacting command & control servers and downloading its payload. Sophos Server Protection also includes CryptoGuard technology
that stops ransomware from encrypting your files.


Security Heartbeat


Your security products are great individually, but even better when they work together. By enabling your endpoint and firewall to share security information and proactively respond to threats you get unparalleled protection against advanced threats.
