BoldCloud and NeuShield to Protect Victims of Ransomware and Advancing Cyberattacks

Today BoldCloud and NeuShield introduced the industry's first Mirror Shielding data protection solution to help small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and consumers protect their files and data against ransomware and advancing cyberattacks. NeuShield Data Sentinel (NeuShield), patent-pending technology, adds a new layer of data protection with a failsafe way to instantly revert files and data when other malware defenses, like antivirus and anti-ransomware, fail.

Hackers are becoming extremely resourceful and have found ways to circumvent even the most advanced antivirus and anti-ransomware solutions. Recent Tenable research reveals, "cybercriminals have a median seven-day window of opportunity during which they can exploit a vulnerability to attack their victims." Ponemon's 2017 State of Endpoint Security Risk Report suggests that 69% of organizations don't believe their antivirus can stop the threats they're now seeing. This is a growing problem as 81% of cybersecurity experts believe there will be more ransomware attacks than ever in 2018 according to CIO Dive.

"SMBs and consumers are particularly vulnerable to the latest breeds of cyberattacks and often don't have the money or technical resources necessary to defend and recover their data when things go wrong," said Marcus Chung, CEO, BoldCloud. "By bringing NeuShield to market, we are making sure people have the tools they need to protect their data when hit with any unknown or zero-day threat."

"Working together with BoldCloud, will allow us to bring NeuShield's ground breaking Mirror Shielding technology to the mass market," said Elisha Riedlinger, COO, NeuShield. "Now every SMB and consumer will have a simple, reliable and budget-friendly way to instantly revert corrupted files or data back to their pre-attack state when hackers compromise their traditional lines of defense."

BoldCloud is led by a team of serial entrepreneurs with in-depth expertise in bringing to market the technologies businesses and consumers need to protect themselves from all types of complex and multi-threaded cyber and malware attacks. The team's collective experience includes leadership at Malwarebytes, Symantec, DSolution, and Sygate. The NeuShield product development team draws from prior successes at FireEye, Google, Websense, Symantec and Sygate, building some of the top endpoint security products on the market. Using their technology expertise and understanding of the threat landscape as well as weaknesses in existing security solutions, the team is well positioned to deliver the innovations people need to protect their data against increasingly sophisticated attacks.

Reliable Protection from Ransomware 
No matter how or why data was destroyed, NeuShield works at the file system layer to restore corrupted files or data back to their original state. Using patent-pending technology, NeuShield creates a protective shield between system files and applications. If malicious code makes any modifications to a file, the original copy stays intact-allowing users to quickly undo any undesired changes. NeuShield's groundbreaking technology is poised for mass consumer and SMB adoption with both free and cost effective, feature rich versions of the tool available that are simple to use and don't require a backup procedure, so there is virtually no impact on device performance.

"At A1care, we are a family-owned healthcare business, we strive to be agile, progressive and stay one step ahead of the competition. Securing our client data has always been a key part of our business and it is required by HIPAA legislation," said Percy Syddall, CEO, A1Care. "With NeuShield Data Sentinel, we have added a critical new layer of data protection against ransomware, wiperware and targeted healthcare threats all towards protecting our clients' health and personal information."
