G+D Mobile Security solution provides protection against WannaCry and similar attacks

Munich, May 16, 2017 – Since last Friday, the ransomware "WannaCry" has attacked more than 200,000 computers in 150 countries and caused enormous damage. Like in previous attacks e.g. with Stuxnet, WannaCry was using a vulnerability within the system of unpatched or unhardened Windows computers. Industrial facilities and equipment without up-to-date IT security patch management are especially at risk: even if patches are already available as in this case, they are often not being installed in a timely manner. The Secure Industrial Visibility (SIV) solutions portfolio by G+D Mobile Security would have helped preventing the spread of WannaCry and thus considerably limited the resulting monetary damage.
