CrowdStrike Falcon™ and Ransomware

Cloud-delivered endpoint protection that stops online extortion

CROWDSTRIKE FALCON PREVENTS WANNACRY RANSOMWARE

CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence™ identified a new variant of Windows ransomware, named Wana or WannaCry, that is rapidly spreading across multiple countries and was widely reported as an attack on England’s National Health Service (NHS). WannaCry ransomware is believed to have already caused a significant number of infections from a campaign that began on May 12, 2017.

HOW RANSOMWARE PROTECTION FROM CROWDSTRIKE WORKS

Because attackers can and will shift their techniques, CrowdStrike’s next-generation endpoint protection solution, CrowdStrike Falcon, uses an array of complementary prevention and detection methods:

Detect & Block known Ransomware

Exploit blocking to stop the execution and spread of ransomware via unpatched vulnerabilities

Machine learning for detection of previously unknown “zero-day” ransomware attacks

Indicators of Attacks (IOAs) to identify and block additional unknown ransomware, and protect against new categories of ransomware that do not use files to encrypt victim systems

CrowdStrike Falcon uniquely combines these powerful methods into an integrated approach that protects endpoints more effectively against the menace of ransomware. This protection spans known and unknown ransomware — and even prevents “file-less” ransomware that is invisible to conventional malware-centric defenses.

CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVING RANSOMWARE PROTECTION

Close collaboration between CrowdStrike’s detections, Falcon Overwatch and Falcon Intelligence teams provides you with continuous updates, including newly created Indicators of Attack (IOAs) and machine-learning algorithms that reflect and anticipate evolving ransomware techniques. This unique set of capabilities allows Falcon defenses to stay relevant against ransomware, even when attackers change their methods.
