    Yes, we have very strong upfront detection of it, and we've extensively tested it with detection disabled and have verified that WSA's journaling/rollback works very well for it. It will take some time to repair as Cryptolocker encrypts literally gigabytes of files in some systems but as long as you have WSA installed before you get infected, you're safe from it.
