The new paradigm for preventing ransomware is Post-Infection Remediation
The game has changed for Security Operation Centers
When’s the last time your security tools and intelligence alerted you to an unexpected ransomware entry point – like a set of stolen credentials for your code repository or a stolen cookie for your SSO? This data is being siphoned from employee, vendor and contractor machines infected with infostealers. And this lack of visibility is the biggest blind spot in ransomware prevention strategies. With SpyCloud, Post-Infection Remediation enables SOC teams to improve their efficiency and their organization’s security posture.
Get visibility into malware-exposed workforce applications – with real-time alerts containing detailed evidence of exposed passwords and stolen cookies that allow criminals to bypass authentication entirely
Modernize your malware infection response and go beyond the device – shifting your paradigm to one that’s identity-centric, enabling mitigation of organizational risk from exposures tied to the malware victim’s identity
Eliminate guesswork and uncertainty – with clear and actionable steps to reset the credentials and invalidate active sessions for every exposed application and user
SpyCloud-enabled Post-Infection Remediation steps
Typical infection response stops once the device has been cleared of the malware. That’s where PIR begins. With visibility into malware-exfiltrated access details, the SOC can take additional steps for a more robust response that negates follow-on attacks like ransomware. For each affected application, PIR entails the following steps:

SpyCloud Post-Infection Remediation FAQs
Post-Infection Remediation is SpyCloud’s critical addition to malware infection response – making it possible to understand, visualize, and act on the full scope of an infection’s threat to your business. The result is negation of entry points for ransomware attacks fueled by malware-exfiltrated access details (credentials, cookies, and more).
Post-Infection Remediation provides a framework of additional steps to existing incident response protocols, designed to shut down opportunities for ransomware and other targeted attacks by resetting the application credentials and invalidating session cookies siphoned by infostealer malware. This optimized remediation enables the SOC to seamlessly and comprehensively neutralize the risk of ransomware from these exposures.
It’s an approach uniquely enabled by SpyCloud’s Cybercrime Analytics. We alert security teams each time a malware infection arises on a device accessing your workforce applications. The alerts deliver definitive evidence of entry points to your organization: detailed information about the device, along with the siphoned authentication details for the applications that matter to your business – password managers, security tools, marketing and customer databases, learning and collaboration applications, and HR and payroll systems, to name a few.
As a result of Post-Infection Remediation, security teams can now disrupt cybercriminals attempting to harm businesses.
Endpoint protection products still miss certain infostealer malware types on corporate devices, and do not account for infections on unmanaged / personal devices accessing corporate applications. Post-Infection Remediation is enabled by a product called SpyCloud Compass, which detects infostealer infections on managed, unmanaged, and undermanaged devices where authentication details have been exfiltrated and likely to be used against the enterprise. In short, Post-Infection Remediation is additive to EDR.
