GroupSense and Airgap Partnership Helps Companies Prepare for and Defend Against Ransomware Attacks

Jul 28, 2021 10:00:00 AM

Arlington, Va. and Santa Clara, Calif. – July 28, 2021GroupSense, a digital risk protection services company, and Airgap, a cybersecurity provider of the industry’s first agentless Ransomware Kill Switch™, today announced a partnership to help customers prepare for and defend against ransomware attacks. By combining GroupSense’s Ransomware Response Readiness Subscription (R3S) service offering with Airgap’s Ransomware Kill Switch™ annual SaaS subscription, customers can microsegment their networks to automatically prevent the spread of ransomware during the incident mitigation lifecycle, and also have a comprehensive and tested ransomware “playbook” for mitigating the damage caused by these attacks.

GroupSense's R3S service offering is backed by the company's cyber intelligence team of ransomware experts and provides three core functions: an executive strategy session, ransomware playbook that includes business, legal and finance stakeholders; and 24/7 priority on call ransomware incident support with negotiations and cryptocurrency settlements. Airgap’s Ransomware Kill Switch is built on the company’s Zero Trust Isolation platform and provides a one-click switch that instantly blocks all lateral data paths – usually reducing the attack surface to a single endpoint. The solution also helps companies with post-exfiltration attack surface control and reporting. Together, the partnership delivers end-to-end cyber risk mitigation, putting the power back into the hands of companies under attack to help minimize any impacts on business operations.

“Defending against and mitigating the damage from attacks has never been more critical as the ransomware epidemic continues to rage,” said Airgap CEO Ritesh Agrawal. “By joining forces with GroupSense, we’re providing customers with a powerful, one-click solution for ransomware response, including the technical capability to kill the spread of ransomware instantly.”

A pioneer in Ransomware Negotiation Services, GroupSense employs expert negotiators backed by its analyst and research groups to successfully secure significant reductions in ransomware mitigation costs for its clients. The company’s core offering, its Digital Risk Protection Services, focuses on the risks and threats that matter most to clients while providing customer-specific intelligence and insight to prevent and mitigate those risks.

“Many companies think they’re prepared for a ransomware attack because they have a generic incident response plan, but that is just a false sense of security,” said Kurtis Minder, co-founder and CEO of GroupSense. “Ransomware prevention needs to have a specific plan in place that includes a response playbook, so companies know exactly what protocol to follow as well as the technologies required to thwart any incoming attacks. That is why our partnership with Airgap is so important, because it combines these two key prevention areas for our customers, giving them the best protection possible against ransomware attacks.”
