Keep ransomware at bay

Don't let ransomware sidetrack your business by fighting it in all the places where it will try to get in. Our solution protects you from the DNS layer to email to the endpoint. And it's backed by industry-leading Talos threat research.

What's inside Ransomware Defense

Ransomware can penetrate organizations in multiple ways. Reducing the risk of infections requires more than a single product. Cisco Ransomware Defense uses an architectural approach to strengthen defenses with detection, visibility, and intelligence.


DNS layer protection

Cisco Umbrella Roaming protects devices on and off the corporate network. Block DNS requests before a device can even connect to sites hosting ransomware. The full Cisco Umbrella package provides even greater DNS layer protection. See how this global medical manufacturer and leading academic hospital protect their DNS layer with Umbrella.


Endpoint protection

Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints stops ransomware files from running on endpoints.


Email threat protection

Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Email Security blocks ransomware delivered through spam and phishing emails. It even identifies malicious email attachments and URLs. Address attacks before they spread. 


Sophisticated segmentation

With Cisco TrustSec technology you can dynamically segment your network, so access to services and applications stays highly secure.


Advanced defenses for advanced attacks

Cisco Next-Generation Firewalls with AMP Threat Grid sandboxing technology contain both known and unknown malware. They also block command-and-control callbacks to ransomware hosts.


Expert advice

Cisco Security Services provides immediate triage during an incident response. It streamlines deployments of Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), and other solution products.
