How to Find Ransomware Lurking Within Your IT Environment!

Ransomware is a money-making proposition for bad actors seeking to monetize hijacked data from an organization’s compromised apps and systems. Let’s cut to the chase, and call it out for what it really is – extortion. 

Bad actors use many different tactics, techniques, and procedures in their ransomware exploits. They have perfected a variety of behaviors, processes, and strategies to improve the results of their attacks. As victimized organizations have become less inclined to pay ransoms, bad actors have developed new approaches to extract money. Beyond holding data ransom by encryption, they’re combining encryption with other methods to encourage the probability of payments.  

In these combination attacks, first the bad actors gain access to the organization’s assets and exfiltrate their data, then they encrypt it. If the organization refuses to pay for the decryption key, the hacker may publicly expose the exfiltrated data to disgrace and harass the organization to its customers, investors and the public at large. The intent is to threaten the organization with the possibility of damaging their brand, business, and financial reputation. They may also auction off the stolen data on the dark web to at least make some money for their efforts.  

RidgeBot outmaneuvers ransomware schemes 

RidgeBot auto-discovers your assets, scans them, and then proceeds to ethically exploit the vulnerabilities found just as a hacker would. Each test includes a report that alerts you to the potential ramifications if the vulnerability was to be successfully exploited by a bad actor. The report also shows you the exact attack path that allowed the asset to be compromised. With this detailed and accurate information, you can quickly and proactively eliminate all the vulnerabilities within your network and digital assets.  

RidgeBot includes ransomware protection with a template specifically designed for combating ransomware attacks. There are many template capabilities available, such as scanning for 270 high-profile ransomware entry point vulnerabilities, launching attacks to exploit these vulnerabilities, and detailed reporting on exactly how the successful testing exploitations were achieved. 

Why automated, ethical, robotic, risk-based vulnerability management is the future of penetration testing!

Possibly one of the most compelling arguments is that hackers are already using robots to attack your enterprise. Unless you hire an army of new people, you can’t compete. Another reason is that even minor changes to an enterprise network can create new untapped vulnerabilities. RidgeBot® is the only fully automated pentest robot that ethically hacks your systems to verify vulnerabilities.
