Healthcare Company Eliminated Hacker Foothold After “Bad Reputation IP” Alert

A healthcare company that helps hundreds of patients daily was able to eliminate malware on an infected device.

A device on their network began pinging an IP address that Critical Insight knew to be up to no good.

The company had recently signed up with Critical Insight for MDR (Managed Detection and Response) and a Critical Insight analyst caught the traffic headed to the “bad reputation” IP.

The analyst alerted the healthcare company immediately.

The company did a scan of the device and did not find any problems. But, because of the Critical Insight warning, they did a second scan with a different piece of software and found the malware.
