Good Day fine folks at Netfort,

I just want to say how happy I am to be a LG subscriber and have a LG sensor deployed in my network this past weekend during the wannacrypt mayhem that was happening globally.

Using the information provided below and I was able to detect the SMBv1 nodes on my network and look for any possible infections. This was an extremely beneficial bit of information to possess to be able to effectively respond with critical proactive measures.

Knowing which nodes were most vulnerable, we were able to focus on those as a priority and develop a plan to address the lesser critical network segments.

It is my opinion that, knowing what to look for at the right time is very crucial to effective defense and remediation activities. Effective, resilient, proactive defenses are not only limited to functional firewalls, IPS, anti-virus, patch management and other and the other slew of mixed defense technology, but also a security strategy that incorporates vigilant and detailed insight into the network makes a huge difference. LG makes this difference a reality.

Being the first responder and having IT security responsibility and accountability, I would attribute the value and capability that LG offered as the turning point in our proactive defense strategy to the wannacrypt epidemic.
