Because GREYCORTEX MENDEL uses advanced artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analysis to identify network anomalies, it easily identifies ransomware (like “WannaCry”).
MENDEL users are also better protected from attacks like WannaCry and its variants/clones than users of firewall, IDS, or other rule-based security solutions alone. Rule-based security solutions require a known signature in order to create a rule. This means an attack must happen before the signature of the attack can be added as a rule. MENDEL doesn’t need a signature to identify the attack. It’s network traffic analysis features detect the attack’s symptoms before they can harm the network. This means security teams have the peace of mind to know that should an attack happen, they will see it, and be able to stop it before it does damage.
