Most security vendors are quick to update their solutions once a threat is seen in the real world. But what if you are one of the first victims? Without a dedicated anti-ransomware engine, the protection gap can range from 24 hours to several days or even weeks. Traditional rules-based EDR and other endpoint protection products rely on convolutional neural network AI models for detection that are generally too complex to quickly train on emerging threats. In contrast, Halcyon leverages Capsule Networks (CapsNets) AI micro-models that allow us to rapidly train, test and deploy new protection mechanisms to address novel and emerging threats exponentially faster than traditional endpoint tools.
After gaining initial access to a system, attackers will routinely target security tools active on an endpoint. Bypassing and unhooking these products has a lower resource cost than attempting to sneak malicious binaries or scripts past automated detection tools. With countless real-world bypasses published, it is clear that security products also need to be hardened against attacks. The Halcyon agent specifically prevents leading endpoint tools from being disabled, bypassed or unhooked.
Ransomware events can seriously disrupt business operations, that is why our resilience engine was designed to recover infected systems as quickly as possible. Once a ransomware incident occurs, the remediation clock starts ticking. While Halcyon delivers the most advanced detection and prevention capabilities in the market, we also provide the only automated resilience layer to assure a ransomware attack never slips by your defenses. Halcyon is enabled with automated encryption key capture and autonomous decryption capabilities that immediately decrypt any infected devices.

In this report, Cloudzy with a Chance of Ransomware: Unmasking Command-and-Control Providers (C2Ps), Halcyon Research Team has published new research that details novel techniques used to unmask yet another Ransomware Economy player that is facilitating ransomware attacks and state-sponsored APT operations: Command-and-Control Providers (C2P) who sell services to threat actors while assuming a legal business profile.
The average cost of remediating a ransomware attack for victim organizations exceeded $4.5 million in 2022, and this figure does not include the ransom payment, damage to brand, lost revenue from disruption to operations, increased cyber insurance premiums or other tangential costs. Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to any organization, regardless of size or industry. The downstream impacts from a large-scale ransomware event can have massive fiscal fallout and real-world repercussions. Traditional security solutions, while robust and effective for some threats, have clearly failed to protect organizations against ransomware attacks. There is a huge gap in protection and ransomware operators are expertly exploiting it to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars yearly.
The Halcyon Research Team experts compiled this Q2 RaaS Power Rankings guide for the ransomware threat landscape based on data from 2023's second quarter.
While the steps during an IR are necessary, they are more informed by the need to build a chain of custody for legal requirements than the drive to recover and return a business to operational status quickly. The Halcyon Greenlight Service solves this problem, by returning to normal after any ransomware incident.
