Conti is considered a ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) model ransomware variant, and there is variation in its structure that differentiates it from a typical affiliate model. Conti developers likely pay the ransomware deployers a wage rather than a percentage of the proceeds from a successful attack.

To secure systems against Conti ransomware, implement the mitigation measures, including multi-factor authentication (MFA), implementing network segmentation, and keeping operating systems and software up to date.
