Post-infection protection is a technique used to limit the impact of successful attacks. Attacks with ransomware, viruses or cryptojacking are often unavoidable and only after the intrusion are security strategies developed to prevent a future intrusion.
Previous concepts using firewalls and virus scanners to reliably secure corporate networks have not always been successful, as new viruses and ransomware are constantly being created and infiltrated, and antivirus software is based on known virus signatures. With Post-Infection Protection, there is a strategy that neutralizes such attacks and minimizes the impact. The goal of Post-Infection Protection is to prevent the spread of ransomware in corporate networks.
