Ransomware Protection Service

Our ransomware protection service

Ransomware attacks have become one of the most common ways for cybercriminals to take advantage of core vulnerabilities in IT systems. And while anti-virus and malware protection systems still have their place, it can be a lot more difficult to protect from and deal with ransomware.

For small and medium-sized businesses, this can pose a serious risk as they generally don’t have the same luxury as large corporations that hire in-house cyber security teams.

And that’s why Charlotte IT Solutions has created a ransomware protection service that we tailor to the needs of small businesses.

Cybercriminals used to create malware that would affect as many organizations as possible and aim to get access to data that they could then sell. By exploiting vulnerabilities in an operating system or network router, it would open up a wide range of threats.

But ransomware threats are now extremely targeted and will aim to get access to the sensitive data storage of one company. The hackers would then lock users out of the data and demand a ransom payment to regain access.

It’s extremely lucrative for criminals as they can attack a company and get money from them at the same time.


A ransomware attack can start with the exploitation of a Windows security glitch, inadequate cloud security, or malicious links sent in phishing emails.

Once infiltrated, ransomware doesn’t require replication to other systems, as its aim is to gain control of critical systems or data. The ransomware programs will then notify users to pay a certain amount before the data or system is permanently disabled or deleted.

Such ransomware threats have impacted businesses of all sizes, and the more likely you are to be storing sensitive data like medical or financial information, the more likely you are to fall victim to such a crime.


Ransomware is making waves across news headlines and is projected to cost the economy more than $6 trillion over the next decade. Not only is ransomware costly to your business, but it can also be publicly and reputationally damaging as well.

Ransomware is malware that infiltrates your computer, locks you out of your files, and then demands payment for you to access those locked-out files.

Malware initially targeted individual computer users, but the most notorious ransomware attacks have been against companies and have cost them millions of dollars.

Here at Charlotte IT Solutions, our ransomware protection service will help prevent those damages from being inflicted on your company.


Alongside ransomware protection, we also put advanced backup systems into place to help prevent a complete lockout from all your files. You can be attacked from various points of contact, so we’ve made sure that we can cover the following for you to make sure that you, your data, and your business are safe.

  • Your cloud services
  • Your overall IT Infrastructure
  • Business documentation
  • Your business’s backup files
  • Your systems’ firewalls


At Charlotte IT Solutions, one of our goals is to be preventative before being reactive. To make sure that your systems are protected before an attack, we will audit your infrastructure for any open vulnerabilities.

Our ransomware protection solutions often encompass scanning the computers in your network, your servers, the network itself, and anything that might be attached or connected.

If an attack has taken place on your system, we will do an assessment of the breach to see what kind of damage has taken place on your systems and where they’ve taken place.

Patching up those security holes after an attack will help us understand how your security was breached and will help prevent the same kind of intrusion from happening again.

Here at Charlotte IT Solutions, we have come up with a process that allows us to fully tailor protection against ransomware to the needs of small businesses.

The very first step in any effort to boost your cyber security and prevent ransomware attacks has to involve getting a clear picture of what your IT infrastructure looks like.

Most businesses simply use default Windows security settings and basic anti-virus software. But those systems don’t include adequate ransomware protection software.

The other problem is that many organizations simply don’t have a full inventory of all the endpoints and how they are protected.

That’s why we first perform a systems audit to find any weak points that standard built-in ransomware protection with operating systems simply won’t be able to deal with.

Once we have a full picture of all the devices and access points in your business, it’s time to come up with a formal strategy to protect you from ransomware and other cyber attacks.

With advanced persistent threats out there, you have to ensure that you don’t stand out as a weak target. That’s why we strategically plan the right level of protection for every individual device.

We also plan what kind of ransomware protection software will best suit your needs and budget. Having built out such strategies for dozens of businesses in all types of industries, our team is in the best position to advise you on the most suitable options.

A critical part of our service involves having ransomware protection built into the fabric of your IT infrastructure. By blocking ransomware threats before they can do any damage, you can save yourself a lot of stress and downtime.

Implementing both intelligent systems and regular human monitoring and analysis, means we can detect ransomware before it becomes a problem. And because we deal with many different businesses in different industries, we have built up a lot of experience and knowledge about where and how cybercriminals prefer to attack.

Here at Charlotte IT Solutions, we often get hired to deal with an existing ransomware attack. With such new clients, we can often help to remove the malware and get clients’ systems back up and running.

These are the kind of things that advanced threat detection can protect you from, which is why we recommend that all businesses make this a priority for their business success.

You simply can’t rely on standard off-the-shelf software for anti-ransomware protection, as cyber criminals are usually one step ahead.

Another service that we offer clients as part of our ransomware protection packages is managing all the local and cloud-based data storage. These are the most common first targets during cyber attacks.

And when you have an automated backup and archiving system in place with securely encrypted files, then it’s a lot easier to rectify ransomware.

By removing the malware and securing the entry point, you can then simply switch to your data backup with limited downtime. And we can achieve this with automated systems that work in the background without you even noticing it.

One thing that sets us apart from competitors is that we don’t believe in delivering a one-size-fits-all approach to security. Our anti-ransomware protection approach involves tailoring a service package to the individual needs of clients to maximize the level of protection.

This ensures that your business doesn’t stand out as a weak target for criminals who will exploit any organization that doesn’t have the latest advanced security.

It’s like installing an alarm system and hiring a security guard to send a message that you’re not vulnerable and encouraging criminals to look elsewhere.

If you’re worried about ransomware, you can attempt to keep your system safe by making sure that it’s properly backed up. Unlike other types of infections, however, ransomware attacks don’t need a chain of people to spread from one machine to another.

In addition to your backups, we recommend that you have tests done regularly on your systems to make sure that there aren’t any potential vulnerabilities that could lock your entire company out of your data.

But without advanced ransomware detection and protection, your business could stand out as an easy target for cybercriminals, and it will only be a matter of time before you become one of their victims.


If you’d like to learn more about our ransomware protection services, call us today for a free consultation. We’ll provide you with all the details of how we would structure service packages for your needs and budget.

Our priority is to ensure that you achieve the best possible level of protection so that you don’t become another cybercrime statistic. And with our tailored service approach, you’ll know that all your systems are fully protected.
