The Growing Threat of Ransomware: Analysis & Stopping it with SES-RDe Extension Whitelisting

Ransomware is a real and growing threat to organizations across the world – all industries, all sizes. The economics of ransomware (low operating costs, easy access to attack software, insignificant chance of legal jeopardy, victims paying the ransoms and large profits) ensure that the growth trend will continue. The current security protections that are being used by most organizations cannot stop ransomware from executing on the targeted computer and encrypting critical data and most of the new, seemingly innovative, techniques are also not providing real protection.

The only security product today that can assure organizations that ransomware will not encrypt and hold their data hos­tage is Stormshield – it is the leader in stopping ransomware from executing and also uniquely stops ransomware from achieving their goal: accessing and encrypting data.

Learn how to stop ransomwares on two levels:

• Level 1 - Stop the ransomware from executing on a computer

• Level 2 - Stop the ransomware from encrypting data with Extension Whitelisting

This white paper is an abstract of the full white paper (above) with a focus on the technical issues around understanding and stopping ransomware using the simple, yet highly effective, Extension Whitelisting technology.

 

Stormshield Next Generation White Paper

Organizations across the world are frustrated with the ineffectiveness of traditional endpoint security products and their inability to stop the increasing in volume and ever-more sophisticated attacks. As a result, a new generation of endpoint solutions has been created by innovative companies like Stormshield that can provide effective security. In order to provide NGEPP effectiveness these new Stormshield protections are lightweight, work in the existing security ecosystem and work across platforms independent of a real-time connection.

 

Stormshield Next Generation Endpoint and Data Protection White Paper

This white paper describes the challenges and shortcomings of traditional endpoint protection products and how they are ineffective against the “next generation” attacks.  Then, the foundational capabilities of what you should look for when you are evaluating a Next Generation Endpoint Protection platform are presented and analyzed.  Last, the Stormshield Next Generation Endpoint and Data Protection is presented and reviewed as an effective solution to stopping Next Generation attacks.

 

Organizations are facing “next generation” malware attacks like Rombertik. How can stormshield next generation endpoint protection make a difference?

This paper describes the challenges and shortcomings of traditional endpoint protection products and how they are ineffective against the “next generation” attacks. Then, the foundational capabilities of what you should look for when you are evaluating a Next Generation Endpoint Protection platform are presented and analyzed. A real representative of “Next Generation” attacks, Rombertik, is analyzed to illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of traditional and NGEPP security.attacks.

Protecting XP PCs with ExtendedXP After Microsoft Support Ends

A professional security analysis by Evolution demonstrating how Stormshield ExtendedXP provides organizations with the appropriate compensating controls to allow them to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) after the Microsoft XP support ended.

 

Backoff - The Biggest Threat to Retail Data Ever

Retailers are under an unprecedented wave of IT security attacks. Despite significant investments in a multi-layered IT security system and IT security staff and being PCI DSS compliant, the headlines seem to have a new victim listed every week with larger and larger credit card data losses. The estimates are that Backoff alone has infected over 1,000 retail organizations and only a few hundred of these retailers are currently aware of it in their systems. Memory scraping is a real and significant threat to retail organizations and it is not being stopped by traditional security products. However there is an answer.

 

Bridging the Gap - A Look Inside MIPS (Memory Intrusion Prevention System)

The current PC and Server security standards are no longer adequate to stop the current generation of attackers. Despite your investments in security you are at greater risk than ever. The “Gap” is the time window between when an attack has breached your defenses and the days/weeks/months before you can determine that you have been attacked.
