Ransomware attacks begin on user devices and systems. When executed, ransomware malware will use encryption to lock access to the device and its data until payment is received. Unlike other malware attacks, the motive for ransomware is almost always monetary.
Ransomware malware is commonly spread through infected software and applications, email attachments, storage devices, and phishing attempts. These attack vectors all have one thing in common—they are executed by users. Therefore, the best defense against a costly ransomware breach is to tighten control over user privileges and access.
BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management provides the ransomware solutions for the job.
The BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management (PAM) platform comprises three integrated solutions: Secure Remote Access, Endpoint Privilege Management, and Privileged Password Management.
Our ransomware solutions provide protection against the most common ransomware and malware attack vectors, including insecure remote access pathways and privileged access. At the same time, they also prevent or mitigate sophisticated edge cases that leverage social engineering, macros, and other vulnerabilities. Defend your organization against both client-side and server-side ransomware threats across on-premise and cloud environments.
Centrally manage and secure remote access for service desks, IT admins, and vendors.
Eliminate unnecessary privileges and elevate rights to Windows, Mac, Unix, Linux, and network devices without hindering productivity.
Traditional remote access methods, such as RDP, Virtual Private Networks, and legacy remote desktop tools lack granular access management controls. This means they are easily exploited via stolen credentials and session hijacking. Extending remote access to your vendors makes matters even worse.
BeyondTrust Secure Remote Access enables organizations to apply least privilege and audit controls to all remote access from employees, vendors, and service desks.
BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management is recognized by analysts as the industry’s leading solution for privilege elevation and delegation and application control. The solution manages and secures privileges across all types of endpoints—Windows, Mac, Unix, Linux, desktops, servers, IoT, ICS, SCADA, and more.
While ransomware is commonly delivered via unauthorized programs, some strains leverage legitimate applications and macros, such as Microsoft Office, Adobe, and PowerShell. BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management stops ransomware and file-less (living of the land) attacks at the source by protecting rogue execution of these applications.
Compromised credentials play a role in almost every IT security incident—ransomware is no exception. That’s why it’s critical to secure privileged credentials with an enterprise privileged password management solution. The BeyondTrust suite of ransomware solutions is designed to eliminate the abuse of credentials by malware.
