Tech Mahindra ESRM – Ransomware Protection & Remediation Services

Date: May 17, 2017

Current Ransomware Threat Environment

Today’s ransomware campaigns are very different from what we have seen in the past. On the one hand, ransomware can be easily obtained and used successfully by criminals that have little to no hacking skills, often referred to as Ransomware as a Service (RaaS). On the other hand, we are seeing ransomware being used for much more than just ransoms. In some cases, we have seen it used as a diversion; first harvesting credentials for later use, and then encrypting the drive to keep IT staff occupied while the attacker covers their tracks and accomplishes even more wicked objectives. And more recently, we are seeing highly opportunistic campaigns that encrypt entire networks in an organization and delete host backups prior to encryption, leaving the entire organization held hostage and unable to operate

Tech Mahindra ESRM offers service to help organizations address this evolving threat.

Proactive Prevention and Readiness

Tech Mahindra offers best practices for prevention, network architecture, internal IR workflows, vulnerability and patch management, and assessment of both internal hosts and externally facing services that criminals are using to gain foothold. When it comes to ransomware, prevention and preparation are the best medicine. Once execution takes place, the business cost and business risk go up exponentially. Likewise, organizations that are well prepared for ransomware can greatly minimize the business impact of an IT incident in general.

  • Imparting wisdom PRIOR the attack occurs to ensure the best preparation, preventative technologies, and workflows are in place
