Responding to the major cyber attack that affected its systems less than one month ago, Maersk announced the implementation of different and further protective measures in its IT systems.
The Danish shipping giant was among numerous companies hit by Petya virus in June, and admitted that its anti-virus software was not effective against this new type of malware.
“This virus attack was a previously unseen type of malware, and updates and patches applied to both the (Microsoft (MSFT.O)) Windows systems and our antivirus were not an effective protection in this particular case,” Maersk said in an official a statement.
Despite the extensive disruption of the company’s operations and communications by the virus attack, Maersk confirmed that it saw no data breach or data loss.
