Ransomware is growing every year and no organisation is immune. And it only takes one click by an unsuspecting employee to infect the whole network, spreading rapidly from a local computer through the entire network and NAS (Network Attached Storage).

Although most organisations have end point cyber security, Ransomware and Malware can slip through. And even the best anti-virus protection finds it difficult to track internal threats and compromised employees.

Ransomware Protection explained in 90s

The solution is CryptoSpike – the number one agentless Ransomware protection for Central File Services whether in the local data centre, NAS, or in the Cloud.

CryptoSpike provides 3 levels of Ransomware protection and detection as follows:


• Blocks known ransomware signatures
and file types.

• Updated automatically.

• Filters can be added manually.



  • Blocks all files EXCEPT allowed file list
  • Can be applied at a granular level (e.g. accounting Share only allows Excel files)

Behaviour Patterns

  • Monitors user behaviour on file system to detect day-one threats
  • Limits or cuts off user access if unusual behaviour is detected
