Itís still early days for anti-ransomware solutions. Malwarebytes ran a beta earlier in 2016 for an anti-ransomware
program, and advertises Malwarebytes 3.0
as capable of fighting this type of malware.
But Cybereason believes RansomFree has what it takes to lead the charge against ransomware. The desktop program for Windows 7 and up (as well as Windows Server versions 2008 R2 and 2012) uses behavioral analysis instead of regularly updated malware definitions to fight the bad programs. Cybereason took a look at all the ransomware it could find, and analyzed the programs for common characteristics. It then built a program to monitor for those behaviors.
