Your Questions Answered about WannaCry Ransomware

The WannaCry ransomware attack has infected more than 300,000 computers in 150 countries so far by exploiting vulnerabilities in Microsoft’s Windows operating system.

As mentioned in the video, the problem with this Server Message Block (SMB) file-sharing service is that it’s on most Windows operating systems and found in most environments. However, we make it easy to identify which systems in your environment have or haven’t been patched yet. Importantly, Ziften Zenith can also remotely disable the SMB file-sharing service entirely, giving organizations valuable time to ensure that those machines are properly patched.

If you’re curious about Ziften Zenith, our 20 minute demo includes a consultation with our experts around how we can help your organization avoid the worst digital disaster to strike the internet in years. Let’s talk.
