It was an ordinary Wednesday when an employee downloaded and opened an email attachment that was infected with malware. Red Canary’s behavioral detection technology quickly identified the malware and notified hospital security staff. It soon became apparent that the attack was a previously unknown variant. Worse, it included a network-spreading capability and propagated to 47 devices in seven minutes.
Red Canary escalated the alert and worked with the hospital’s team to isolate the affected endpoints. Red Canary collaborated with Beebe’s security, network, and operations teams to shut down all endpoints and stop the attack. Quick action spared hundreds of workstations from falling victim to the attack.
Clint, the director of information technology, commented, “The threat would have hit all our workstations if Red Canary had not caught it in time. You can’t invest enough in that type of assurance. Red Canary helps me sleep at night.”
