F5 Networks and Carahsoft held a hands-on lab to learn about one of the most significant cyber-threats to date: ransomware. Experts agree that a multi-faceted and holistic strategy is the best defense. We will discuss actionable steps you can take to identify, prevent, detect, respond, and recover from a ransomware attack. We will also discuss the three primary attack vectors used to deliver ransomware and how F5 solutions can be directly mapped to each of these. While there is no silver bullet or magic wand to completely eliminate the threat, F5 is a trusted advisor that can help you significantly reduce ransomware risk.
Attendees learned how F5 can:
Reduce ransomware risk by providing policy-based, intelligent visibility to encrypted threats such as ransomware
Provide the ability for your existing tools to see threats and provide mitigation
Perform decryption off-box, allowing the security tool to focus on what it does best (mitigation) and not waste valuable resources on decryption
Reduce ransomware risk by leveraging multiple threat feeds to detect malicious URLs and IP addresses
