With the increase of Ransomware attacks this past year, it’s more important than ever to protect the data on your network.
Somebody in your office can accidentally click a questionable link on a website or in an email. Suddenly, all the information that you rely on to run your business has been locked down and encrypted. On your screen appears a ransom message telling you to pay up if you ever want to access your information again.
At Umbrella, we’ve had several clients get hit with such attacks. We monitor their backups very closely. And can restore data from them if something like a Ransomware attack happens. But, we want to be even more proactive. We want to make sure your network is as protected as it can be, so attacks don’t happen in the first place. Through our research, we’ve found a product that provides the line of defense we need. The product is called CylancePROTECT, and it has had a 100% success rate on blocking attacks. With no breaches worldwide.
How It Works
CylancePROTECT redefines what antivirus (AV) can and should do for your organization. It uses artificial intelligence to detect and prevent malware in real-time. By taking a mathematical approach to malware identification and using machine learning techniques instead of reactive signatures and sandboxes, CylancePROTECT renders new malware, viruses, and bots useless.
The best defense requires protecting the most vulnerable location—the endpoint. Cylance’s mathematical approach stops the execution of harmful code regardless of having prior knowledge or employing an unknown obfuscation technique. No other anti-malware product has the accuracy, ease of management, and effectiveness of CylancePROTECT.
What CylancePROTECT Means For Your Business
Ultimately, the best thing is that you don’t have to worry about your employees clicking on the wrong link and putting your organization’s data at risk. There’s no longer a risk of having to shut down your servers and restore them from good backups. That process can take a full day to complete, which is nothing but expense and lost productivity.
Umbrella is taking a stand against cyber-attacks aimed at our clients. We’ve decided to go with a more proactive solution instead of playing defensively. Our solution is CylancePROTECT, and we will be reaching out to all of our clients in the next few months to speak with them about deployment.
