ASM: Your First Line of Defense Against Ransomware
Preventing ransomware starts long before infection.
By the time an attacker is on your devices and thinking of holding you for ransom, it’s already too late. Ransomware attacks are painful and get a lot of attention but are simply the latest symptom in a deeper problem with security programs today - the inability to assess and proactively reduce risk. If you want to stop the next ransomware attack, you have to get better at cutting them off at the source - your external attack surface.
The days of relying on cyber insurance as a ransomware strategy are over. Once a ransomware attack is executed, it is too late to start devising a response - the damage and cost are done. Get ahead of the next ransomware attack with Randori Recon.
Explore our latest infographic for actionable advice on how to get ahead of your next ransomware attack.
The Growing Risk from Ransomware:
700% increase in ransomware attacks in 2020
$20B in annual damage from ransomware attacks
$4.4M is the average cost of a ransomware attack
$1.1M is the average cost to clean up after a ransomware attack
How To Proactively Reduce Your Ransomware Risk:
Identify Your Top Targets: Know where attackers are most likely to strike first. Use an ASM tool, like Randori, to get an external perspective of your business using the same advanced techniques threat actors use to identify your most tempting ransomware targets.
Reduce Your Attack Surface: Minimize your footprint by shedding high-risk assets where possible and hardening what’s left by adding extra preventative controls and alert monitoring around those deemed most vital.
Optimize Your Controls: Keep ransomware attackers at bay by knowing which of your vulnerable assets appear most attractive to attackers and addressing those first.
Test Your Defenses: Practice how you fight. Your attack surface is always changing. The best way to prepare for an attack is to practice sparring with real attacks on your system.
