If you've been reading about Cryptolocker on the news, or if you've had the very unfortunate experience of dealing with it yourself, you're probably wondering whether you have the right level of protection to prevent it from affecting you or the network you administer. The good news is that not only can Umbrella help, we're at the very top of the technologies that can prevent this problem!
- We were the first company to block the domains before their 'domain generation algorithm' (DGA) became public knowledge.
- We are the most effective and simplest to deploy product to protect against this-- and we block the threats from Cryptolocker in advance, before it gets anywhere near your network. We match our amazing research and ability to use Big Data to predict these attacks before they affect you and we cover your employees on any device, anywhere, all the time.
The CryptoWall malware is slightly different from other previous variants including Cryptolocker. The major difference is that it does not use the domain generation algorithm or fast-flux DNS. However, our service will block communication initiated by the malware.
