  • The
    Targets

    Asia Pacific countries have emerged as launchpads for cyberattacks. For example, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam are global hotspots for major blocked suspicious Web activities—up to 3.5 times the standard ratio, which indicates these countries are being used to launch malware attacks.

Ransomware Defense

Disrupt the delivery

Twisted Web

The Internet does not work without the Domain Name System (DNS) and neither does ransomware. Do you have the ability to quickly block user access to bad sites? Do you have this control regardless if users are on or off the corporate network?

Cisco Umbrella

The value in using Umbrella is that it’s a great first line of defense against malware and ransomware. We went from seeing several malware incidents a day down to very few.

You’ve Got Mail

Unfortunately, email is the most common entry point for malware. Hackers lace emails with harmful links and attachments. Do you have a system in place that will block malicious links, attachments, spoofing, and phishing so that your users don’t even see them?

Cisco Cloud Email Security

Cisco Cloud Email Security has allowed us to become proactive rather than reactive – there is no comparison.

Detect, contain, and remediate

Every Device Is a Door

Unfortunately, attackers get stealthier by the day and new variants of ransomware can appear. What happens when something actually gets through to one of your endpoints? Can you spot it? Can you stop and get rid of it? How do you know if everything is resolved?

Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints

Advanced Malware Protection, in combination with Umbrella, has decreased the number of ransomware outbreaks to zero during the last 8 months.
