Ransomware penetrates organizations in multiple ways, so fighting it requires a multi-front strategy. Cisco protects against ransomware with an integrated platform approach across a breadth of critical control points backed by best-in-class threat intelligence and research from Talos.
The second edition of Cisco Umbrella's popular Ransomware Defense for Dummies e-book explores cybersecurity best practices for reducing risks.
Ransomware protection works best if it is intelligence-driven to fight threats on multiple fronts. This requires a platform based approach such as Cisco SecureX, delivering broad visibility across critical control points to detect and protect fast and at scale.
Cisco Secure Email blocks ransomware delivered through spam and phishing emails. It even identifies malicious attachments and URLs.
Most ransomware attacks use DNS. Cisco Umbrella provides a fast and easy way to improve your security. It helps improve security visibility, detects compromised systems, and protects your users on and off the network by stopping threats over any port or protocol before they reach your network or endpoints.
Cisco Secure Endpoint never stops monitoring all endpoint activity, so it sees ransomware as it unfolds—then rapidly terminates offending processes, prevents endpoint encryption, and stops the ransomware attack in its tracks.
Cisco SecureX is a cloud-native, built-in platform that connects our Cisco Secure portfolio and your infrastructure. It allows you to radically reduce dwell time and human-powered tasks.
Cisco Talos Incident Response has developed a ransomware plan of action (PoA) specifically for incident response, which has been tested and validated in multiple, compromised environments. Utilize the full suite of proactive and emergency services to help you be prepared to respond quickly and efficiently during your incident.
Cisco Secure Access by Duo protects against ransomware by preventing adversaries from using stolen credentials to establish a foothold, move laterally and propagate ransomware. Duo prevents potentially compromised devices from accessing resources, verifies users’ identities, while ensuring that devices are compliant, up to date and safe before granting access to applications.
Cisco Secure Network Analytics delivers an agentless network detection and response solution that monitors your network traffic and sees when something anomalous occurs—like a ransomware infection. Using multilayer machine learning and entity modeling to detect ransomware, you will be able to quickly accelerate your response to stop ransomware attacks.
“Before Umbrella, I was attacked seven times by ransomware. Since the installation, I have not had one [attack].”Kevin Hood, IT Director, Habush Habush & Rottier
“We have seen a reduction in malware infections from several a week to practically zero [with Umbrella].”John Sobieralski, Network Coordinator, City of Aspen
“AMP for Endpoints has successfully mitigated all ransomware attacks within the last two years of deployment. It has also provided increased visibility across all of the endpoints, and reduces my response time to incidents down to hours.”Oluyemi Oshunkoya, Senior IT Architect, Abu Dhabi Gas Development Company Limited
“Not only did AMP save us from having to clean up a CryptoLocker infection, it also gave us visibility into who had opened the file, which we did not previously have.”Dan Kelcher, Network/Server Administrator, Turck Inc.
