CipherTrust Transparent Encryption Ransomware Protection
Monitor and block ransomware behavior to protect critical data.
Reliance on baseline security practices using next generation firewalls, secure email/web gateways and focusing on closing vulnerability gaps alone have not been sufficient to prevent ransomware attacks.
The main challenge facing Fortune 500 companies is to safeguard business critical data from being encrypted by unauthorized processes and users on endpoints and servers.
CipherTrust Transparent Encryption Ransomware Protection (CTE-RWP) continuously monitors processes for abnormal I/O activity and alerts or blocks malicious activity before ransomware can take complete hold of your endpoints and servers.
Using CTE-RWP as part of your ransomware defense strategy to protect critical data strengthens your overall security posture and avoids business disruption.

If you look at the scale, complexity and value of what we were trying to do, deploying the Thales CipherTrust Data Security Platform made perfect sense.
Ransomware is a type of malicious software, or malware that prevents you from accessing your computer files, systems, or networks and demands you pay a ransom for their return. Ransomware attacks are both costly and damaging to an organization’s reputation.
CTE Ransomware Protection (CTE-RWP) continuously enforces file/folder level ransomware protection with minimal configuration and no modification to any applications on the endpoint/server. It monitors for any abnormal file activity caused by ransomware infected processes, and alerts or blocks (per user configuration) when such an activity is detected.
The best defense against ransomware is multifaceted. CTE-RWP monitors processes for abnormal I/O activity on files. Adding a license for CipherTrust Transparent Encryption (CTE) provides additional benefits to guard against ransomware including access policies. There are other means that will decrease your risk factors such as being aware of phishing scams (how malware infects your machines), anti-virus software, and regular data backups. CTE-RWP is a huge step in managing your risks of a ransomware attack.
CTE-RWP is a separate license purchase from CTE and can be used independently or in combination with a CTE license for multifaceted protection against ransomware. Both are managed through the central user interface within CipherTrust Manager.
Ransomware has been on the rise since 2020, accounting for 25% of all data breaches. Ransomware attacks can bring business operations to a grinding halt by blocking access to critical data until a ransom is paid. The main challenge facing Fortune 500 companies is to safeguard business critical data from being encrypted by unauthorized processes and users on endpoints and servers.
Credential compromise is a leading cause of ransomware attacks because credentials like passwords can be stolen, shared, bought or hacked. Through integration with leading Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) providers, MFA for CipherTrust Transparent enables organizations to add an additional layer of protection for sensitive data, dynamically at the access point.
Ransomware is experiencing global growth driven by “monetization by extortion”. Every sector is being affected, from healthcare to financial services and government. Check out the latest data on ransomware growth from the Thales Data Threat Report and learn about strategies for protection of sensitive data and access control to protect against ransomware and other advanced persistent threats.
Ransomware attacks have been a problem for years, but they have recently become a lot more damaging, with criminals targeting everything from critical infrastructure to hospitals and retailers, and demanding tens of millions of dollars in ransom.
As many companies have implemented work from home to adjust to the pandemic, unprotected remote desktop protocol (RDP) endpoints have been massively used as a key attack vector for ransomware attacks.
Ransomware is a vicious type of malware that cybercriminals use to block companies and individuals from accessing their business critical files, databases, or entire computer systems, until the victim pays a ransom. It is a form of cyber extortion.
