Enable faster detection of potential ransomware incidents to reduce risk and maximize uptime.
There’s a reason ransomware is such a popular tool in the modern hacker’s tool belt: it’s highly effective. And the sooner you can detect ransomware, the more likely you’ll be able to stop it from spreading and taking down an entire network.
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—and if those files are modified or changed in any way, an investigation is immediately opened with our ThreatOps team to confirm whether those changes are the result of a ransomware attack or malicious encryption.
Once deployed, your Huntress dashboard provides regular status updates to show the number of “armed” and “tripped” canaries—which can be viewed in aggregate or for specific endpoints. And with easy access to more detailed reports, insights and remediation actions, your team can confidently respond to potential ransomware attacks.
