High Wire Networks Inc.’s and its cybersecurity business unit, Overwatch Managed Security, introduced Overwatch Ransomware Kill Switch, powered by Airgap, provider of the trademarked agentless Ransomware Kill Switch.
The solution enables High Wire’s managed service provider (MSP) partners to provide their business clients with protection from the growing threat of ransomware attacks by reducing mean time to detection and resolution.
With one click, the 24/7 security analysts can activate Overwatch Ransomware Kill Switch to lock down a business network, blocking network access to connected devices and limiting the spread of ransomware across networks – from corporate campuses to home or remote workspaces. The solution requires no agents or clients nor any upgrades or integrations to a business’ network.
Ransomware damages worldwide in 2021 are projected to be $20 billion, or 57 times more, than they were in 2015, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. The research firm says that number will grow to $265 billion by 2031, with a new attack every 2 seconds.
Overwatch Ransomware Kill Switch is suited for any business, but particularly those in highly targeted and vulnerable industrial verticals, such as:
- Biomedical manufacturing
- Electronic manufacturing
- Operational Technologies
Overwatch Ransomware Kill Switch is available to businesses through High Wire Networks’ authorized sales partners as a subscription service with options for fully managed, self-managed or as-needed professional services for setup and onboarding.
In a fully managed deployment, High Wire Networks will configure, monitor, manage and respond to threats in real-time by leveraging Airgap’s patent-pending technology along with High Wire’s Overwatch 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC).
