With the recent events surrounding the WannaCry ransomware attack, REMTCS' ANNI PASS solution would have identified and mitigated the ransomware attack, preventing it from spreading throughout an organization.
The identification of the threat is possible for two reasons: 1) The WannaCry malware was delivered as an executable, as such, is identified by ANNI PASS as a potential threat and 2) It may have come from a known bad domain or IP address. If it comes from a bad domain or IP address, it would automatically be determined to be malicious. If not, it would be examined for malicious impact and if deemed malicious, then sandboxed for verification and a countermeasure developed for remediation and propagation across the entire enterprise including all endpoints in near real-time.
According to Richard Malinowski, CEO, Chief Architect and founder of REMTCS, and former head of IT for the Western Hemisphere and Head of Trading Technologies for UBS: "Based on our patented AI and Behavioral Analytics technology, as with all threats identified by ANNI PASS, she creates unique signatures for all the WannaCry malware variants and propagates the new signatures to all instances of ANNI's Centralized Threat Database to assure instant identification and removal of any new versions/variants of the WannaCry ransomware attack."
