The solution incorporates the ExtraHop platform's proprietary Precision Packet Capture capability, allowing companies to detect ransomware attacks in-progress and recover lost files. ExtraHop, customers can now use packets to reconstruct files as they existed immediately before encryption, safely recovering critical data without paying the ransom. The solution even works if there isn't a recent backup of the affected files. Take that hackers! 

"The 'human vector' has become a reality for today's security teams. Just as the common cold will infect at least one person in an office and make its way to others, it's just as likely that that at least one person in your organization will open an email attachment containing ransomware," said John Smith, Principal Solutions Architect for Security at ExtraHop.

"We've already worked with customers around the globe to detect ransomware before it can do significant damage. By incorporating Precision Packet Capture into our ransomware solution, ExtraHop now truly puts IT security back in control, helping them detect and short-circuit attacks and rapidly restore impacted files."
