The WannaCry ransomware started to hit companies worldwide this past Friday, setting off a wave a panic about what to do about it. The reality is this attack will continue to proliferate, and it will likely continue to command attention from CISOs to the boardroom to the media for the upcoming weeks. The attack was first reported to have started to hit companies in Europe and Asia this past Friday, and so far to-date, over 200,000 systems in 150 countries.
It’s been a few years since we have seen CryptoLocker on a regular basis, but now it seems to be making its rounds again via a new spam campaign. The new CryptoLocker variant has been around for many years, and has evolved over that time.
CryptoLocker used to be very popular back when the Zeus botnet was making its rounds. The way it worked was once a computer was infected with the Zeus malware, it would be used to push the CryptoLocker ransomware onto the machine.

As a small business or mid-sized organization, cybersecurity can mean very different things. Most small businesses have less resources available to deal with threats.
It’s an incredibly exciting time to be in the endpoint security market and particularly as a next-generation provider. There is so much opportunity to help protect businesses in every industry and every size. And we have so much potential to be innovative, agile and adapt to the market’s evolving needs. Coming out of RSA 2017, I’ve never been more confident in CounterTack’s position in the market, and the direction we’re headed with innovation and technology.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery—and we agree! Today we saw other endpoint security vendors promote their “streaming prevention.” Well we say “welcome to the club guys,” because this isn’t a new technology.
As a leading platform provider to enterprise and Federal customers in the endpoint detection and response (EDR) market, we’ve been closely watching the changing nature of how Security Operations Centers (SOC’s) are structured for optimal aggregation and correlation. We are seeing several trends emerge as SOC managers demand a more robust, yet less cumbersome set of integrations into SIEM platforms as their centralized cybersecurity lens into threat management.
Over the past 18 months we’ve watched the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) market evolve and take shape as organizations both small and large and across industry are recognizing the need to protect the endpoint. A clear focus for technology market-wide, has been on trying to solve customer challenges by detecting threats faster and with more efficacy, integrating endpoint intelligence into other platforms, improving SOC workflow and preventing commodity malware in favor of focusing more on advanced threats.
