Question

Hello,
First of all, I apologize in advance for my English.
I am writing you to ask a question that seems very important to me.
We often hear about companies and hospitals (for example) that have been hacked, or whose data is subject to ransonware.
Is it possible to have information or maybe even a list of the security solutions that were used each time?
For example, I would like to know whether Webroot has been able to protect its customers better than others?
And which security solutions have failed the most?

Some will answer that each case is unique and that everything depends on the configuration and the chosen parameters, 
but I would like to disregard this fact and just consider the automatic and pro-active effectiveness of the abovementioned security software.

@Jacques_R ,

I’m really not sure that this information is publicly available. When companies get hit by ransomware, they generally try to keep it under wraps until they get their systems restored by either:

  1. paying the ransom 
  2. using a clean backup to restore their data

Additionally, most companies do not publicly state or record what their cybersecurity suite looks like as that would equate to offering up useful info to malware teams.
