How Hyve protects you from ransomware attacks

1.

URL/DNS Filtering & Email Protection

Hackers will try to get access to your network possibly via social engineering and phishing emails or malicious websites.

The attack

When hackers target a company with ransomware, they can’t access sensitive data straight away due to standard network protection. This is why a ransomware attack usually starts with social engineering. Hackers often target emails and employ phishing attacks as a primary vector for infiltrating businesses due to human error. Before an attack begins hackers will spend time performing reconnaissances to find target emails on public platforms like Linkedin or Facebook.

Our solution

To combat these threats, we would recommend that our customers deploy advanced email protection with URL & DNS filtering, to block access to malicious websites and keep emails safe. Combining these measures creates the first layers of defence against ransomware. These defences are integrated and regularly updated by Hyve, forming a critical line of defence against ransomware attacks.

2.

Network Security & Patch Management

Find critical data and vulnerabilities on your network or PC

The attack

If an attacker manages to get inside your network, it will attempt to scout out valuable resources and unpatched vulnerabilities, as well as call back to the hacker behind the attack. Your networks can be exploited in ransomware attacks through insufficient access controls and weak passwords and outdated software enabling attackers to look for key assets to target and compromise network resources.

Our solution

Our protection uses network virtualisation and firewalls as a multilayered defence to stop ransomware from spreading. Network virtualisation provides micro-segmentation, isolating network segments to prevent lateral malware movement. Firewalls inspect and filter network traffic, blocking malicious data, and detecting ransomware patterns. We also provide patch management to keep your software updated removing unpatched vulnerabilities. As a result, we can protect critical assets, limit lateral movement and detect/block malicious traffic, reducing ransomware risk across your entire infrastructure.

3.

Endpoint Protection

Malware and Antivirus Protection

The attack

Hackers frequently exploit endpoint vulnerabilities as a gateway to initiate ransomware attacks, due to the strategic significance of endpoints within organisational networks. Endpoints, such as servers, laptops, desktops, and mobile devices, often store sensitive data and have direct network access, making them enticing targets.

Our solution

This is where our endpoint protection utilising ESET has you covered. Here, advanced detection techniques and proactive measures help prevent initial compromises, while behaviour-based analysis monitors process behaviour for unusual patterns, This, coupled with our centralised management, ensures that all devices remain safeguarded, giving you the peace of mind that your users are protected.

4.

Identity Protection with MFA

Impersonating your users and stealing credentials

The attack

If ransomware scripts or hackers manage to get access to a user’s credentials, they will try to use them to impersonate the user in order to access sensitive data.

Our solution

We can keep your users’ identities verified and protected with MFA. We use DUO 2FA to provide an additional lock on your doors, by generating a unique code on the user’s device we are able to verify the identity every time a login is attempted. With MFA, even if hackers know your username and password, they can’t log into your account without the authentication factor provided by your device.

5.

Data Protection Encryption and Backup

Encrypting your sensitive data and holding you to ransom

The attack

In a scenario where ransomware has access to your critical data, the script will encrypt your business data, putting it behind lock and key. There is also the chance of hackers exfiltrating or threatening to release data to anyone who pays. This disrupts productivity, puts your customers at risk and can have a large financial impact – as well as ruining your brand’s reputation.

Our solution

Our encryption and backup is the last line of defence protecting your critical assets against ransomware. We manage and run machine-level encryption, meaning that even if your defences are breached, the data is still inaccessible to attackers. Our virtual machines have a ‘zero trust’ policy, meaning that an infection can’t spread from machine to machine, and we also maintain up-to-date backups of all virtual machines.

Protect your users

We help to ensure the protection of your users with dedicated vulnerability mitigation. Supported by our cloud experts, stop cybercriminals from using ransomware to restrict your users’ ability to access your platform and gain access to your employees.
