Why do I need ransomware protection? -->


Signature based products like anti-virus are not able to detect zero-day threats and A\V is only about 43% effective. Ransomware gets past your traditional defenses by using social engineering attacks against the company employees whom are not consistently able to distinguish a phishing email from a valid email. To make matters worse fileless ransomware attacks only require an employee to visit a site to start a ransomware attack that runs solely in memory. No files touch the disk so A\V never detects it.

A typical install will take 15 minutes or less.

No. Your backup only updates the achive bit and doesn’t modify the file.

The average time to detection is 17 seconds.

CryptoStopper will detect all ransomware.

Instead of monitoring each endpoint with CryptoStopper, we monitor the data that sits on the file server, and again once a threshold is met, we flag that as ransomware.

No. The software is not a HIPs. We monitor the data to look for an excessive amount of changes. Once that threshold is met, we know its ransomware or possibly an anomaly that should be investigated immediately.

Setting the archive bit will not activate CryptoStopper since setting the archive bit doesn’t modify the file. The archive bit is simply an attribute of the file.

CryptoStopper should be installed on your server to monitor for infections.

The average time to detection is 17 seconds.

CryptoStopper is extremely lightweight. The software only monitors the files that it creates so it's not burdened by watching thousands of files.

Potentially. Although the false positives should be minimal we have found instances where a program folder is located in the same path as a protected shared folder. If the software is reinstalled you will get a false positive.
