Certainly you've heard about the impact that the WannaCry ransomware attack (also known as WannaCrypt or Wcrypt) has had on IT networks around the world. As organizations scramble to respond, patch and harden their defenses, another wave and advanced copycat versions are anticipated.
Unlike most encrypting-type malware, this one has wormlike capabilities, allowing it to quickly spread by itself. As the second iteration of the ransomware strain impacting IT infrastructure around the globe is expected, we want to arm our customers with information to be best prepared. Networks in many businesses and critical infrastructure like healthcare and finance across 150+ countries have been infected by the WannaCry ransomware worm.
The same SIEM technology that detected WannaCry for thousands of enterprise businesses can protect your systems as well. At a fraction of the price of traditional SIEM, SIEM-at-the-Edge, powered by EventTracker's award-winning SIEM technology, is designed to protect endpoints and critical servers and point-of-sale (POS) systems from advanced attacks, like ransomware.
