Ransomware Protection

Complete Data Protection Against All Types of Ransomware Attacks.

File and Data Protection

Over the past few years Ransomware has grown to become one of the largest problems in cybersecurity. Even, the FBI has identified ransomware as one of the four main factors impacting modern organizations. Traditional ransomware protection is often ineffective in stopping new or unknown attacks.

NeuShield takes a different approach by making an attacker believe they have access to a computer’s original data files, but they are in fact only seeing a mirror image of them. Even if a device is attacked by Fully UnDetecable (FUD) or zero-day ransomware, the user can easily recover the original files.

Recovers data files with a single click

Uses Mirror Shielding™ technology to prevent changes to important files . Leverages Data Engrams™ which allow you to view and rollback to previous versions of a file.

When NeuShield Data Sentinel is installed it adds a barrier to your protected files preventing them from direct changes. When an application tries to modify a protected file, it gets redirected and the file modification is stored on an overlay, keeping the original file intact. Later, if you want to go back to the original file you can simply delete the data on the overlay. This process of deleting data on the overlay is called reverting changes.

Disk and Boot Protection

Some types of destructive malware, such as NotPetya, Bad Rabbit, and Shamoon, will attempt to encrypt or wipe your entire disk. With NeuShield the boot portion of your drive and raw disk access are monitored.

  • Prevents ransomware and malicious programs from taking over the boot process
  • Stops wiper malware from erasing all data on the hard drive

One-Click Restore

NeuShield’s One-Click Restore capabilities make it easy to undo the damage of a ransomware attack, allowing you to quickly regain access to your computer, files, and data where traditional security and storage methods fail.

  • Removes known and unknown threats
  • Restores system back to a known good state
  • Recovers encrypted and corrupted operating system files

Reverting

Reverting is useful for undoing changes to your files that you don’t want. For instance, if you accidentally save a new document over the top of an existing document you can go back to your original document. It is also useful in cybersecurity by allowing you to reverse undesired changes that ransomware or other malware does. When ransomware tries to encrypt your files, the encrypted files are stored on an overlay, but the underlying files are never changed. You can simply revert changes, which will delete the encrypted data, allowing you to access your original, unencrypted files again.
Performance

This method of recovering files is also useful for performance. It is significantly faster to delete a file than to copy or restore a file, which is what a backup does. Because of this NeuShield Data Sentinel can recover data almost instantly, no matter how much data is being protected.

But it is not just reverting files that is quick. Since the overlay only stores file changes, which need to be written to the disk anyways, there is virtually no performance overhead on your actual disk. NeuShield Data Sentinel can protect files allowing you to instantly revert undesired changes with virtually no impact to your computer’s overall performance.
