Vancouver, B.C. – (June 30, 2017) Premier Managed Services Provider, VirtualArmour International Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE:VAI) (3V3:F), announced today it continued to maintain 100% protection for its entire client base after a second cyberattack know as ‘Petya’, hit Global businesses.
“This recent attack was originally believed to be ransomware similar to WannaCry but the ransom component has subsequently been shown to be a smokescreen and real motives were seemingly to cause indiscriminate damage,” said Andrew Douthwaite, VP of Managed Services at VirtualArmour. “The level of damage caused to machines infected with Petya is significant so we’re obviously proud that our engineers were able to ensure all VirtualArmour clients remained secure and were in no way impacted by the events.”
In the wake of the attack, VirtualArmour was asked by Bloomberg North and Investing News Network to provide an expert overview this lastest attack and offer advice on necessary steps organizations should take to protect themselves.
