The Canary in the Data Mine

There’s a reason ransomware is such a popular form of malware in the modern hacker’s tool belt: it’s effective. The sooner you can detect ransomware, the sooner you can assess the scope of an attack and activate your incident response plan. 

Like the old canary in the coal mine, our Ransomware Canaries enable faster detection of potential ransomware incidents.

When deployed, small lightweight files are placed on all protected endpoints. If those files are modified or changed in any way, an investigation is opened with our Security team to confirm whether those changes are the result of a ransomware infection or malicious encryption.
