Ransomware Protection

Criminals that develop destructive malware are experts at evading detection and antivirus tools. Minerva Anti-Evasion Platform stops evasive malware before it infects the endpoint.

Minerva blocks ransomware threats on enterprise endpoints without relying on prior knowledge about malicious programs’ patterns or behavior.

Our patented approach is especially powerful at protecting against unknown ransomware by blocking infections and preventing users files from ever being affected.

Minerva stops ransomware by using a combination of innovative capabilities, based on the company’s patent-pending technology: Minerva prevents malicious actions before detection and before any damage is caused.

Ransomware Remediation
When other various security layers fail at blocking ransomware from running on a system, Minerva Ransomware Protection actually remediates the damage caused by destructive malware.

With Minerva, organizations can easily restore the encrypted files without relying on backup capabilities such as shadow copies or snapshots, that are often disabled by the ransomware or might not even be enabled in the first place.

Blocking Macros, PowerShell…
Minerva Anti-Evasion Platform protects the organization from ransomware that spreads via malicious documents by blocking actions initiated by documents that employ macros, PowerShell and other scripts. Minerva allows the enterprise to continue using macros for legitimate business purposes.

Blocking Memory Injection
Ransomware often evade detection by injecting malicious code into legitimate applications or OS components. This approach allows malware to get around security mechanisms such as traditional antivirus, application whitelisting and personal firewalls. Memory injection is often used by malware that is sometimes considered fileless, because in such cases attackers refrain from placing recognizable malicious code on the file system.

Minerva Anti-Evasion Platform disables fileless or other malicious programs that attempt to inject code into other processes, preventing ransomware that uses this evasive measure from infecting the system.

This is yet another layer that contributes towards Minerva’s ability to protect systems from ransomware.

Malicious Document Prevention
Ransomware often finds its way onto endpoints by way of Microsoft Office documents, which victims might receive as email attachments. Such attacks `are exceedingly effective, in part because business users frequently share Microsoft Office files, and in part because it’s notoriously difficult to distinguish between legitimate and malicious documents using traditional antivirus approaches.
