Zero Trust Segmentation stops ransomware
Illumio provides protection that contains ransomware at the source
The problem with ransomware
Organizations' assets and operations are being targeted by criminal gangs using more sophisticated ransomware with better evasion techniques. Defenses are regularly breached with detection systems, and need to work harder to identify and respond. Illumio stops ransomware at the source by containing the attack, preserving the resiliency of your organization.
Ransomware attacks can prevent an organization from delivering its primary service.
Organizations are vulnerable to more targeted ransomware attacks on IT and OT environments.
Successful attacks can damage an organization's reputation, operations and revenue.
76% of organizations experienced a ransomware attack in the last two years.
70% of ransomware incidents create more than several days of business disruption.
79% of incident response engagements are ransomware related.
How does ransomware propagate?
MITRE ATT&CK® tactics essential to ransomware
Network discovery helps the attacker build a better understanding of the target environment — what exists, how are they interconnected, what is accessible.
Stop this and the attacker has less useful information about the victim’s network — the net effect is that they are either limited in the progress they can make or are forced to change their tactics to gather the same information, increasing the chances of detection.
Lateral movement enables the attacker to move to the next target or intermediary victim.
Stop this and the attack cannot progress any further, significantly reducing the number of compromised resources.
A lack of visibility makes it difficult to identify potential weak points in the system, and monitor the movements of the attacker.
Too many open ports
Commonly used ports left open create pathways for ransomware to quickly spread and take over the organization.
A lack of proactive security defenses
Relying solely on detection-based solutions has shown to be too slow in stopping an attack.

“We had a concern with a particular manufacturing site that there was a potential for malware. We can very quickly put that containment in place even if it wasn’t at full enforcement. We put the containment in so that site could continue operating without disruption.”

The simple yet powerful graphical map provided visibility that we never had before. I knew that it would be invaluable to easily understand and control what’s happening inside our network.
