Our solution Stormshield Endpoint Security has again demonstrated its relevance by proactively blocking the most virulent attacks. CryptoWall 3.0 is a new variant of the well-known malware CryptoWall. Just like CryptoLocker, CryptoWall is a member of the ransomware family – it encrypts infected computers and demands a ransom from the owners of the files on the computer in order to unblock access to it. This is a type of threat that is in full expansion as Dell Secureworks has shown, with an estimated 5.25 billion files encrypted by the malware.
As its name implies, version 3.0 is more sophisticated and therefore more efficient than the earlier version. It prevents most workstation security tools from performing their scans. Our solution Stormshield Endpoint Security protects your workstations by proactively blocking CryptoWall 3.0.
Recently, our program had been able to demonstrate its effectiveness when it protected a European giant in banking/insurance from CryptoLocker.
