If Ransomware were a Silicon Valley start-up, it would be considered a “Unicorn” — high growth, high reward, low risk, minimal competition. Ransomware techniques are often successful, and the perpetrators are rarely prosecuted. As a result, ransomware attacks are escalating and becoming more sophisticated and elusive. And cryptocurrencies have fueled demands to new heights—exceeding 10 million dollars and sometimes as high as 40 to 60 million—for targets with deep pockets.
But there is hope in sight to get in front of ransomware and stop it in its tracks.
All ransomware attacks against workloads have one thing in common, regardless of the motivation behind the attack — the application is being forced to do something it was not intended to do. Command and control, shift left or right to see what is around, escalate privileges, reach out to the cloud, download malicious payloads, etc. All of these are examples of ways an adversary forces the application to do something they want it to do.
Virsec Security Platform (VSP) applies zero-trust execution to enable a protection-first strategy. It stops attacks in milliseconds, preventing attackers from leveraging vulnerabilities to take control and run malicious code. VSP is a proven technology that enables leading government and commercial organizations worldwide to protect workloads essential to business at runtime with very high efficacy, thus also drastically reducing false positives.
