Lornet is pleased to announce that as part of our Managed Anti-Malware Suite that we now are distributing Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomeware. To read the details on this new package go to the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomeware Beta page to read about this cool lightweight add-on. If you are one of our managed services client with the full security package you will be updated immediately at no extra charge.
So what does it do? This excerpt is from the article listed above. “Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware uses advanced proactive technology that monitors what ransomware is doing and stops it cold before it even touches your files. It has no shot at encrypting. And it does not rely on signatures or heuristics, so it’s light and completely compatible with antivirus.”
Why do I need it? The worst possible type of attack from the internet is ransomeware. It get’s on your system in a variety of manners, but then it encrypts all your files and displays a banner that demands a lot of money to un-encrypt your files. We take a two step approach to this type of attack. The first is making sure our managed services clients have backups if they have that subscription and second a good couple of layers of security software to protect their systems from attack by malware or viruses. The backups provide recoverability if the security software fails. Not everyone subscribes to having backups and that is another topic for another day.
