Ransomware-As-A- Service, Targeted Intrusions and Opportunistic Attacks.GET THE REPORT
Ransomware is the fastest growing type of cybercrime. With opportunistic attacks, Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS), and sophisticated social engineering techniques on the rise, time to detect and contain are critical. We harden your layered defenses and support in developing a strategy for identifying, responding to, and remediating ransomware attacks.

What started as opportunistic attacks that threat actors used to extort transactional payments from their victims has fast forwarded to sophisticated and coordinated state-sponsored groups leveraging tailored ransomware to cripple the operations of high-value targets including utilities, manufacturing, and healthcare providers. While these threat actors are motivated financially, many groups are ideologically motivated and orchestrate cyber-attacks purely to create chaos, sowing instability and mistrust.
The ransomware threat doesn’t end when you recover your IT systems and data from backups. The effects of a ransomware attack may linger for years, potentially eroding your reputation, costing millions in clean-up efforts, and often limiting your ability to land business in highly regulated industries. It’s unrealistic to believe you can prevent ransomware attacks entirely. Defending your organization against powerful human attackers, equipped with advanced technologies requires an equally powerful combination of human expertise equipped with advanced technologies. No ransomware defense is complete without automated and manual responses.
At eSentire our mission is to hunt, investigate, and stop ransomware threats before they disrupt your business. You shouldn’t settle for partial security, so we ingest multiple signals, correlating data across your network, endpoint, log, and cloud sources providing complete visibility, deep investigation, and unparalleled response.
We stop ransomware attacks before they become business disrupting events.
We have been preventing, disrupting, and remediating ransomware threats for decades. We
understand where this threat is headed and what support you need to defend your organization
from what is now the fastest growing threat vector in our space.
Internal Denial of Service
We protect organizations from Social Engineering Attacks, Fileless Ransomware, Lateral Movement, and Ransomware-as-a-Service. Here’s how our services map to the various ransomware attack vectors.

Ransomware is an evolving form of malware designed to encrypt files on a device, rendering the files
and their system unusable. Malicious actors demand ransom in exchange for decryption.
Ransomware actors often target and threaten to sell or leak exfiltrated data or authentication
information if the ransom is not paid.
Ransomware incidents continue to become more destructive and impactful in nature and scope. Attackers engage in lateral movement to target critical data and propagate ransomware across entire networks. These actors also increasingly use tactics, such as deleting system backups, that make restoration and recovery more difficult or infeasible for impacted organizations. The economic and reputational impacts of ransomware incidents, throughout the initial disruption and, at times, extended recovery, have also proven challenging for organizations of all sizes.
The proliferation in ransomware attacks has led to multiple streams of revenue, including secondary and tertiary extortion attempts, attempting to take advantage of victims at their most vulnerable state, responding to the initial attack.
The attacker will demand an initial payment via bitcoin in exchange for restoring access to the victim’s files.
Many times the attacker, or other partners will threaten to publicize the incident in an attempt to extort funds from those concerned of reputational impact.
Even if you’re able to restore your files, and avoid publicity around the Ransomware attack, your data may have been replicated, and released for sale on the dark web.
If you pay a ransom, you may nullify your cybersecurity insurance policy. Contact eSentire for expert
advice, incident response and digital forensics support before you pay.

Effective incident response quickly brings control, stability and organization to the chaotic situation you may find yourself in, should a ransomware attack be spreading across your environment. When the worst scenario happens, how fast your organization can contain and recover is critical to limiting business disruption, reducing cost, and salvaging reputational damage.
You will need to consider:
System recovery: Can we regain control of our systems?
What needs to be rebuilt/reimaged? Can we recover our encrypted data?
Communications management: Has our name been posted online? Do we need to manage any fallout?
Financial considerations: What is the cost of the ransom? How would we pay it? Should we? Does our insurance cover the payout? Is there a second extortion element?
Investigation and hardening: How did the attack unfold? Where are our weak points?
How do we strengthen our posture?
