Cybereason offers $50M in free security software to companies victimized by 'WannaCrypt'
BOSTON May 15, 2017 Cybereason, developers of the most effective Total Endpoint Protection Platform including EDR & NGAV, today pledged $50 million in FREE enterprise software to any company victimized by the invasive WannaCry ransomware attack. For more information, call +1-855-695-8200 or email: info(at)cybereason(dot)com. Cybereason’s enterprise platform and the anti-ransomware tool RansomFree both stop WannaCry by using behavioral and proprietary deception techniques to target the core behaviors typical in ransomware attacks.
Cybereaon’s longtime mission has been to take the advantage away from hackers and give it back to companies and individuals. That’s the reason Cybereason launched RansomFree six months ago - to eliminate ransomware. The popular anti-ransomware product is being used by more than 250,000 businesses and individuals.
WannaCry is the largest ransomware attack in history hitting more than 300,000 people in more than 150 countries. Ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system or computer files until a sum of money is paid. Most ransomware variants encrypt the files on the affected computer, making them inaccessible, and demand a ransom payment to restore access.
“We are taking unprecedented measures to help any company affected by WannaCry because we want to rid the world of ransomware and make it unprofitable for hackers. Ransomware is the biggest threat facing companies today and we’re excited to help even more companies eliminate ransomware,” said Lior Div, co-founder and CEO of Cybereason.
In addition to Cybereason’s $50 million enterprise software donation, Cybereason makes RansomFree, which detects 99 percent of ransomware, available to everyone for free. Businesses and other organizations can download and install RansomFree, in under a minute, at: https://ransomfree.cybereason.com. RansomFree stops ransomware from encrypting data on PCs, network shared drives and Windows servers. It is available for PCs running Windows 7, 8 and 10, Windows 2010 R2, and Windows 2008 R2. Support for RansomFree is available in the RansomFree Support Google Group.
