Defending Against Ransomware Just Got Easier with NeuShield Data Sentinel One-Click Restore Feature

As Cyber Security Month kicks off this month, NeuShield is announcing the release of the newest major version of NeuShield Data Sentinel, which will include One-Click Restore capabilities-making it even easier for ransomware victims to quickly regain access to their computer, files and data without additional backups or downtime - when other malware defenses, like antivirus and anti-ransomware, fail. On the heels of the recent Port of San Diego, Bristol Airport and other headline ransomware attacks, NeuShield will offer businesses and consumers alike strong and efficient protection against these malicious hacks.

A new report has found that 1.5 organizations fall victim to ransomware attacks every minute-and more than $1 million is lost each minute due to cybercrime. As hackers become more resourceful and find new ways to circumvent even the most advanced antivirus and anti-ransomware solutions, businesses and consumers need new ways to protect themselves against Fully UnDetectable (FUD) threats that were conceived by cybercriminals to directly evade existing security layers and harm data.

"No one wants to be a victim of ransomware, but SMBs and consumers often don't have the time, money or technical resources they need to defend themselves or recover their data when things go wrong," said Marcus Chung, CEO, BoldCloud, the main distributor of NeuShield. "With NeuShield's Mirror Shielding technology and newest One-Click Restore capabilities, our customers will be able to rest easy knowing that they have the simple tools they need to protect their data and get back to work quickly if hit with any unknown or zero-day threat."

NeuShield Mirror Shielding technology makes an attacker believe he or she has taken control of a computer's data files, but the attacker is seeing a mirror image of the system and does not have actual possession of the data. In the event that a user receives a ransom demand or notices that the files have been unintentionally altered or encrypted, the user simply clicks a single button to revert back to the original files. Multiple revisions of the file are stored so that users can go back to the right version. This groundbreaking technology doesn't require a backup procedure, so there is virtually no impact on computer performance or downtime during data recovery.

New Features in NeuShield Data Sentinel will include:

One-Click Restore

  •     Reverts undesired changes to your computer settings and programs.
  •     Removes unwanted malicious applications that have been installed.
  •     Brings computer back into a known good state.

Advanced Reporting

  •     Displays security applications and their status.
  •     Monitors disk usage and free space.
  •     Reports on client and operating system status.
  •     Audits client and account activity.

"NeuShield takes a completely revolutionary approach to data protection. Rather than trying to detect and block threats one-by-one, our patent pending approach shields important data to prevent threats from modifying it," said Elisha Riedlinger, COO, NeuShield. "In partnership with BoldCloud, we are well positioned to meet mass market demands for a simple, reliable and budget-friendly way to instantly restore corrupted files or data back to its pre-attack state if hackers compromise a user's traditional lines of defense."

Availability
The newest version of Neushield's ransomware product will be available during Cyber Security Awareness Month. Home users can download free versions of the product or purchase up to 5-seat licenses directly from NeuShield. Businesses or resellers interested in purchasing larger quantities should directly contact BoldCloud.
