Peace of Mind Against Ransomware Attacks

Prevention Against Ransomware

Lock down file access with a least-privilege, granular permissioning model to reduce the risk of attack. Even in mobile and highly distributed organizations.

Apply out-of-the-box classification patterns to locate and classify files containing sensitive information.

Be prepared in the event of compromise by minimizing traffic flows to sensitive data in advance, with only a few clicks.

Minimize potential ransomware damage from overexposed sensitive data

Detect Ransomware

Combine behavioral and signature-based protection into a coordinated and integrated solution, without any administrative burden.

Even when an infected file does not match a known signature variant, Egnyte’s ML-based behavioral analytics will identify and flag patterns of file activity indicative of ransomware—such as renaming, deletions, and changes in file entropy.

Fully cloud-based, there is never any maintenance required to be covered by the latest available releases.

ML-based behavioral analytics to quickly spot when new strains of ransomware

Recover from Ransomware

Speed investigation and simplify recovery with an audit trail of compromised users, files, and data subjects/sensitive data.

Selective file restoration takes a scalpel instead of a sledgehammer approach to rolling back files across your entire organization.

Where needed, built-in breach reporting supports 72-hour turnaround GDPR requirements.
