TEL AVIV, Israel, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
BUFFERZONE, a provider of next-generation endpoint security solutions protecting organizations from advanced threats including ransomware, zero-days, and phishing scams, announced today that it has successfully trapped the WannaCry ransomware in its patented virtual container at a leading European bank.
The WannaCry ransomware attack targeted hundreds of thousands of Windows computers worldwide, encrypting data and demanding $300 ransom in bitcoins. After a series of tests, a leading European bank tested WannaCry with BUFFERZONE and found that BUFFERZONE's patented virtual container was successful in trapping and blocking the ransomware in the virtual container, safeguarding the corporate network.
"BUFFERZONE was designed from the ground up to eliminate these types of attacks in the financial services sector, enabling them to stop malware from infecting user endpoints, while encouraging employee productivity by being invisible to the user," said Israel Levy, the CEO of BUFFERZONE. "Until recently, ransomware infected a single endpoint, however, ransomware has grown more sophisticated and now spreads laterally throughout the network, such as what took place with WannaCry. During this test, BUFFERZONE demonstrated its forte in trapping and blocking one of the most virulent strains of malware we have ever encountered."
BUFFERZONE protects organizations from a wide range of threats with patented containment, bridging and intelligence technologies. Instead of blocking, BUFFERZONE isolates potentially malicious content from web browsers, email and removable storage in a virtual container that keeps the application separate from real memory, registry, files and network resources of the computer. BUFFERZONE maximizes user productivity with seamless, unrestricted access to information, while empowering IT with a simple, lightweight and cost-effective solution for up to thousands of endpoints within and beyond the corporate network.
BUFFERZONE endpoint security solutions protect enterprises from advanced threats including ransomware, zero-days, phishing scams and APTs. With cutting-edge containment, bridging and intelligence, BUFFERZONE gives employees seamless access to Internet applications, mail and removable storage - while keeping the enterprise safe.
