Organizations Can Now Predict, Identify, Protect, Detect, and Respond to Ransomware Attacks in Real-time

NEW YORK, December 01, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Presidio, Inc., a global digital services and solutions provider accelerating business transformation through security technology modernization, today announced a new solution to address the increasing prevalence of ransomware attacks, the Ransomware Mitigation Kit. The new platform defends against ransomware and sophisticated cyberattacks through a comprehensive service combining leading security capabilities of Presidio, CrowdStrike, and CloudEndure, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) company.

Global cybercrime is expected to grow by 15 percent year-over-year the next five years -- reaching $10.5 trillion USD annually by 2025, up from $3 trillion USD in 2015 according to Cybersecurity Ventures. Through the new Ransomware Mitigation Kit, organizations are armed with unprecedented protection against cyber events to address all five pillars of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The Ransomware Mitigation Kit gives organizations an end-to-end white glove service to identify and protect against cyber threats, detect, and respond to risks as they occur and recover all critical data and applications prior to the breach.

The Ransomware Mitigation Kit combines Presidio’s industry-leading services with CrowdStrike and CloudEndure’s technologies to establish a strong cloud security foundation for organizations to defend against ransomware and sophisticated adversaries:

  • Comprehensive visibility and breach protection across all digital assets

  • A strong cloud security foundation to defend against ransomware and sophisticated cyber events

  • Detection and attack prevention, leveraging community immunity

  • Swift response and attack mitigation, preventing lateral spread of ransomware to other devices within or outside of the organization

  • Backup recovery that allows an organization to reclaim and restore all lost or compromised data and applications prior to the attack

"There is no one silver bullet when it comes to mitigating ransomware attacks and other cyber incidents," said Sandy Carter, Vice President, Worldwide Public Sector Partners and Programs at AWS. "Protection requires a layered approach and a team that is on top of emerging threats and capable of maximizing the benefits of industry-leading security technology such as the combination of Presidio, CrowdStrike and AWS."

Previous approaches to ransomware mitigation and cyber protection were bifurcated, disjointed, and required reliance on mutable backups. As attacks and malicious activity become more sophisticated, prevention, detection and response to attacks must become more agile. Leveraging AI and automation, the Ransomware Mitigation Kit eliminates most manual effort, dramatically cutting down on the time, money and resources needed to combat bad actors.

"The ability for an organization to identify and respond to cybersecurity incidents could mean the difference between a minor disruption and a potential catastrophic event. Tens of thousands of cybersecurity events occur on a daily basis that have the potential to cripple an organization for weeks or months at a time," said David Trader, Field CISO at Presidio. "It’s not a matter of if your organization will experience a crippling cyber event, it’s a matter of when. Preparation is critical. Our new solution can stop ransomware in its tracks, saving immeasurable time, resources and money."

The Presidio Cybersecurity Practice covers a broad security services portfolio. Highly skilled and tenured cybersecurity practitioners maintain leading industry certifications, provide thought leadership and practical industry experience. The team has conducted thousands of engagements across all major industry segments.
