No Adaptive Defense 360 client was infected by WannaCry
No Panda Security client running Adaptive Defense 360 was infected by WannaCry Ransomware, WannaCry successfully exploited Windows vulnerability (MS17-010) to rapidly infect entire outdated networks with no user interaction. Even patched systems were vulnerable to WannaCry through a rogue email attachment or link.
Users of the next-gen Adaptive Defense 360 from Panda Security were protected against WannaCry before its release, while companies protected by traditional antivirus had to wait for a security update and risked infection.
This will happen again. Cybercriminals will replicate this attack using new zero-day malware variants targeting unpatched vulnerabilities.
Why Adaptive Defense 360?
Protects against new unknown zero-day malware such as WannaCry Next-gen Endpoint Detection and Response service (EDR)
Protects legacy operating systems including XP SP2, Server 2003 SP2 & later.
Can run alongside security solutions from other vendors as Adaptive Defense.
