Adlumin launches new ransomware prevention tool | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware | #hacking | #aihp

Nearly half a year after landing a seven-figure Series B, a NoMa-area cybersecurity company aims to stop and prevent file encryption with a new offering. 

Adlumin recently introduced this ransomware prevention tool as a feature in its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) product, which is an outsourced security measure that detects and stops threats. The company provides software products and manages security services primarily for middle-market companies, and works with more than 1,500 customers globally. 

Adlumin CEO and cofounder Robert Johnston said that he saw a failure in the industry when it comes to protecting files. For the average antivirus company, it’s often the case that by the time ransomware is detected, a majority of files are destroyed. Speed, and the methodologies used to stop the attack, matter, Johnston said. 

“Recovery from ransomware is a lot easier when nothing important got encrypted,” he said. “That’s our slogan.” 

The 2023 Awards winner developed this product to analyze “the root of every portion of the file system,” Johnston said. developed this product to analyze “the root of every portion of the file system,” Johnston said. This inspection allows for quick identification and termination of ransomware. On average, the tool saved 99% of the file system from encryption, according to benchmark tests against malware. The capability was tested against the most notorious ransomware groups including Black Basta, Conti, Ryuk and NoEscapeLocker. 

The company also released a free ransomware simulation tool for companies to be able to test the efficacy of its defenses. Mock-up data and files are put onto a company’s systems, a synthetic ransomware attack is launched and the organization gets graded on how well defenses were performed. Adlumin then cleans up the files, so there’s no mess. 

Adlumin’s ransomware prevention tool has been automatically added for all those using its MDR services, who also get the simulation tool for free. The company serves customers in several sectors, including education, healthcare and finance. 

“Every industry needs cybersecurity,” Johnston said. “Security is most certainly an industry that spans every vertical.”
