Technical Deep Dive
Technical Deep Dive: Anti-Ransomware Protection. The Halcyon Anti-Ransomware and Cyber Resilience Platform was also designed with failure in mind: on the rare occasion that a ransomware payload manages to execute, Halcyon autonomously neutralizes the attack and enables teams to recover and restore the impacted endpoint quickly, within minutes.
True Cost of Ransomware
The true effects of ransomware expand far beyond the initial disruption and subsequent ransom payment. While the costs of a ransomware attack on an organization are too disruptive to leave to a single product or AI behavioral model. This infographic breaks down the how the attack's ransom is just the impact epicenter of the blast radius set in motion. This datasheet outlines and details the latest in ransomware attack impact.
Protecting Healthcare Providers From Ransomware
With the growth of ransomware attacks against healthcare providers in the past year it's clear that our critical healthcare networks are more vulnerable than ever. Halcyon is pleased to offer our anti-ransomware platform free for three months to all US-based healthcare providers.
Why Halcyon Datasheet
The Halcyon Advantage lies in our Technology Differentiation: Halcyon is the first contextually aware and self-healing endpoint agent that prevents catastrophic failure due to ransomware. The Halcyon Platform has four layers of self-healing ransomware protection to augment and armor your security stack, while significantly reducing your ransomware risk.
Technology Overview Datasheet
The significant costs associated with trying to mitigate ransomware risk has carried a diminishing return and resulted in deploying incomplete solutions to a new and evolving threat. However, the cost to respond and recover from a ransom is significantly higher than trying to prevent it.
Partner Program Overview
EPP and EDR solutions attempt to prevent and detect ransomware, but the evidence tells a different story. The Colonial Pipeline and other attacks demonstrate that these solutions can be circumvented. Halcyon built features into our platform to enhance these solutions as well as provide novel protection against ransomware, and the specific TTPs that ransomware actors use.
Halcyon Executive Overview
Modern defensive cyber solutions, while impressive, have failed in the face of cheap and easy-to-create – and most importantly lucrative – ransomware. Halcyon has built the first anti-ransomware engine to tackle this problem. Halcyon is the industry’s first dedicated, adaptive security platform focused specifically on stopping ransomware attacks, and is built by attackers to stop attackers.
Protecting Our Schools Against Ransomware
School districts and educational institutions are undergoing a digital transformation with the widespread adoption of remote learning. Unfortunately, criminal ransomware groups have taken an interest in this shift to digital classrooms as well. Halcyon is proud to provide a free deployment of our Anti-Ransomware Platform including support free until February 2023 for all U.S. K-12 schools.
What is Cyber Resilience?
From the proto-viruses of the 1970s like Creeper to full-blown cyber weapons like Stuxnet and the rise of nation-state Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) groups, the history of malware has continued to evolve from the moment computers were first networked together. For most of this history, viruses, and malware were used for experimentation, hacktivism, denial of resources, and espionage but as digital currencies like Bitcoin took off, so did the ultimate form of cybercrime: ransomware.
How Ransomware Targets Government Agencies
The targets of a ransomware attack aren't just big businesses, it's anyone with digital operations and an online footprint. Ransomware Groups have expanded their cyberattack operations to target government entities of all sizes. With a low cost of entry and a high success rate, these attacks have caused over $70B in damage between 2018 and 2022. This infographic breaks down the full scope.
How Ransomware Targets SMBs
The targets of a ransomware attack aren't just big businesses, it's anyone with digital operations and an online footprint. Ransomware Groups are moving down market. In the last two years criminal ransomware groups have expanded their cyber attack operations to a new and vulnerable segment – small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). This infographic breaks down the latest impacts.
Halcyon Multi Layer Protection
Modern endpoint defensive products use a point-in-time analysis of any new binary introduced or executed on a system.Binaries are very rarely re-examined after the initial analysis labels it “good” or “bad.” Halcyon is different.
Ransomware Foundations: Part Two
Foundations, Part Two, know thy enemy. Take a look at how ransomware has made headlines over the past few years, and it seems that every week there is another news story about an organization victimized by ransomware. Security leaders need to understand what is driving these seemingly endless waves of attacks and the evolution from one-off breaches to criminal enterprises worth millions of dollars.
Ransomware Foundations: Part One
Ransomware is an online attack perpetrated by cybercriminals or nation state-sponsored groups who demand a monetary ransom to release their hold on encrypted or stolen data. In the past decade, ransomware attacks have evolved from a consumer-level nuisance of fake antivirus products to sophisticated malware with advanced encryption capabilities that target primarily public and private sector organizations. While threat intelligence can help uncover what organizations may be considered primary targets at any given time, no single industry, geography, or size of business is immune.
True Cost of Ransomware
The effects of a ransomware attack expand far beyond the initial disruption and subsequent ransom payment. The toll it takes on an organization are too disruptive to leave to a single product or AI behavioral model. The true costs of ransomware undulate outwards in an exponential blast radius. This infographic breaks down the latest in attack impact.
