Keeping the lights on
with Collective Defense

While Southern Company maintains a mature cybersecurity posture, the role of its security leadership is to ensure that the company is always anticipating and planning for the next attempt to compromise its facilities and services.

IronNet-Ransomware Attack-Catching Ransomware Thumbnail
White paper

Ransomware attacks are always enabled by network connectivity to some degree: delivery, lateral movement/ spreading, command-and-control (C2), etc. Early detection of the initial network intrusion, therefore, is crucial, before the adversary has the chance to advance the ransomware campaign.

In other words, ransomware is the very last step an attacker takes after fully compromising a network to monetize their efforts.

Discover how to catch ransomware campaigns early with NDR.
