Is your cyber strategy proving effective?

Take the first step in securing your organization against ransomware.

SP6’s Ransomware Assessment Services are a time and cost-effective way to significantly lessen the likelihood of a crippling and expensive ransomware event.

How Does It Work?

We test your security defenses against over 307 known ransomware families, employing multiple attack methods for each.

We simulate ransomware attacks on your email, endpoint, and network systems, based on known tactics used by adversaries.

We determine which attacks breach your system and pinpoint the security controls that fail, providing prioritized remediation recommendations.

Ransomware Assessment Services More Comprehensive Than Pen Testing

  • Discover and remediate security flaws within your organization before ruthless adversaries exploit them.

  • Understand your organization’s current security standing before investing further.

  • Our Ransomware Assessment is not penetration testing or vulnerability scanning.
  • The assessment process is highly automated and operates continuously, removing the human element and ensuring realistic scenarios are run frequently.
