Anti-ransomware Module

Crypto ransomware is quickly gaining awareness within businesses due its the disruptive nature. It disrupts business operations by encrypting files and holding them "hostage" until the ransom is paid. In our experience, files shares and computers operating equipment are most impactful to business operations when compromised.

Hipara protects you by preventing what ransomware must do in order to succeed: encrypt. When an untrusted process attempts to encrypt files, we suspend that process and notify your security team.

How is Hipara able to do this? Hipara utilizes our kernel-mode driver to monitor file operations. When a file is opened in write mode, we check to see if the process is trusted. If it is not trusted, we take a backup of the file. When the file is modified, various algorithms* are ran to determine if the file is encrypted. If the file is encrypted, we suspend the process, restore the backup file, and send a notification to Hipara Server.

Never have your business operations held hostage by cyber criminals. Protect yourself with Hipara today!
