How WannaCry Spread

On April 15th, a group of threat actors, known as the “Shadow Brokers”, released a large collection of offensive security tools and data to the world. Threat actors used the deadly combo to infect thousands of computers with WannaCry ransomware in close to 100 countries, including the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), Spain’s Telefonica and FedEx.

How Armor Responded

We know ransomware can be a devastating event for any company. At Armor, we protect companies like yours every day leveraging our Managed PDRR platform. Armor Protects, Detects, Responds, and enables you to Recover.

Armor had previously identified the root vulnerability that enabled WannaCry to spread. Through active managed Protection, we worked to ensure proper patching and configuration changes were enacted. As a result, none of our customers have been affected by the WannaCry ransomware to date. Should a customer have been compromised, Armor’s included 14-day environment snapshot would have allowed our customers to Recover through a rollback.
