Some of the many ways that malware, including ransomware, is commonly spread is through malicious attachments to business email, unsanctioned apps downloaded from third-party app stores, drive-by downloads via phishing and pharming attacks, employing brute-force tactics using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), and network propagation via SMB and CIFS sharing. Email attachments can be zipped, or encrypted files like Microsoft Word documents or Excel spreadsheets that contain malicious scripts or macros can be triggered once the file is unzipped or decrypted.

In this short two-minute video, we demonstrate the power of Ivanti’s UEM for Clients (formerly Endpoint Manager) that can automatically deploy and install an antivirus and endpoint security agents to the Windows workstation or server. Both agents stop the propagation of malware and ransomware by first detecting the malicious attachment, blocking the script from executing, and then isolating the infected endpoint from the network. Once the threat has been remediated by the company IT administrator, the workstation or server can be restored to normal operation. Thank you for watching!
