A ransomware attack can paralyze the functioning of an enterprise if they are unprepared. Over the years ransomware has become the most malicious attack faced by enterprises. In this attack, hackers hold your data hostage and demand a ransom to release your data. If you don’t pay the ransom there is a risk you may lose all your data.
Seqrite protects customers from such ransomware attacks which continue to be on the rise across the globe. Apart from releasing regular updates (signatures) and enhancing heuristic solution – BDS (Behavior Detection System), Seqrite’s Anti-Ransomware feature keeps pace with the emerging and complex ransomware to protect users from potential ransomware attacks.
- Signature Based Detection
An Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) is a threat prevention technology which examines the network traffic flows to detect and prevent vulnerability exploits. In the recent outbreak of WannaCry ransomware, Seqrite’s Intrusion Prevention layer successfully blocked attacks right on the zero-day itself. In the first few days, over 48, 000 attacks were blocked thereby keeping users protected and safe.
Most malware including ransomware are propagated through emails. These infected emails and attachments are not only carefully crafted but have an appealing subject line to lure users. Email Scan Protection is one of the first layers of protection. Seqrite’s Email Scan feature has been able to successfully block a high percentage of ransomware. It also provides zero day protection.
Virus Protection feature provides real-time protection and defense against viruses to keep user’s system secure from any potential threats.
- Behavior Based Detection
BDS (Behavior Detection System) is a dynamic and advanced pro-active protection that helps to eliminate new and unknown malicious threats in the system. The Advanced DNA Scan technology provides zero-day protection. It actively monitors the activity on the system and takes immediate action if any suspicious activity is found by suspending the application/process from executing any further action.
Note: BDS is not supported on Windows Server platforms.
- Anti-Ransomware Feature
Anti-Ransomware feature is a more comprehensive solution specifically developed to detect/block ransomware. It has been able to successfully detect and block hundreds of ransomware across enterprises (as well as individual consumers) every month.
On an average, 1 million ransomware (per month) were successfully detected and blocked by Quick Heal/Seqrite in 2017 [Jan-June].
4. Screen Locker Protection
This feature helps to disable malware/ransomware which specifically lock your computer screen and prevent you from accessing it. In case your computer gets infected with this kind of a malware, you can press Alt + Ctrl + Shift + A to disable the malware and gain access to your computer.
- Back-Up and Restore
What if you know your data is securely backed up in case of a ransomware attack and you don’t have to worry about your critical files being inaccessible. Well, Seqrite Backup and Restore feature helps you achieve this. Through the backup and restore feature, Seqrite has successfully been able to recover 3.5 TB of data of its clients.
