What happens when Plan A fails?

Patching, classifying risks, finding vulnerabilities, the list of trying to manage a network against ransomware is endless and an IT Admins nightmare.

Is anti-virus covering all the bases to protect your endpoints from every threat, phishing, user error, PUPs (the list goes on)?

With the latest facts found by the Osterman Report, that 40% of businesses were hit by ransomware, I wouldn’t say so.

So, you become one of the unlucky ones who is a victim of ransomware.

What does Plan B look like? Or have you even prepared for it? Did the NHS have a Plan B when they were hit by WannaCry last year? Does your local hairdresser understand the impact on their business, if three people turn up to the same 10am appointment and they have no way of knowing who was the first to be booked in?

Most IT Admins know that their current AV, is not  providing them with 100% protection against all threats that we’re all facing in the 21st Century age of the internet. Normally if organisations get hit by ransomware, they have to re-image machines and restore from backups. Which costs time and money – in the form of approximately 100 hours of downtime!

Malwarebytes now offers a “Plan B” option in the form of their Endpoint Protection and Response solution. This offers all the capabilities of protecting users proactively against ransomware and malware, through seven different layers as well as the added ability to isolate endpoints, stopping malware from “phoning home” and  locking remote attackers out. With Malwarebytes’ Ransomware Rollback, every change made by a process is recorded. If a process does damaging  things, you can easily roll back those changes to restore files that were encrypted, deleted, or modified.

The solution is available via Kite Distribution for assisted trials – supported by Malwarebytes.
