The recent WannaCry outbreak that affected hundreds of thousands of devices and disrupted businesses like FedEx, Telefonica, Renault and Nissan has shown us just how dangerous exploits combined with ransomware can be.
To this date, all Bitdefender customers are safe and have been successfully protected from WannaCry.
All Bitdefender GravityZone security solutions use Machine Learning models that are stored locally on the endpoints and these detect and block all WannaCry ransomware variants. For this attack wave, specifically, the machine learning model was developed by Bitdefender labs 4 years ago.
What’s more, Bitdefender’s newly introduced Hypervisor Introspection technology was able to prevent the exploit of the EternalBlue vulnerability even from its zero-day stage, before it was patched by Microsoft.
To make sure you never fall victim to these attack, your security solution should be using bothadvanced anti-exploit capabilities, and technology able to prevent the execution of ransomware reaching your business.
