SparkCognition keeps IIoT systems safe from malware
Petya Ransomware Caught by SparkCognition's DeepArmor
Not even two months after the outbreak of the devastating WannaCry malware, a new cyber attack has begun spreading throughout Europe and the US. This attack, which is a new strain of a ransomware known as Petya or Petrwrap, has hit thousands of computers so far in more than a dozen countries. It was first reported in the Ukraine, where it has already crippled vast portions of the country’s infrastructure, including government, banks, utilities, transportation, and even the radiation monitoring system at Chernobyl.
On the same day that this attack hit, however, SparkCognition’s DeepArmor® caught the malware without ever having trained on it.
