From our AV & antispam reports, it could not segregate out which ones are ransomware.
I'll need this for management report.

Anyone has a list of ransomware names to date?

Attached is a list which I'm seeing happening lately:

Specific to AV mapping for Ransomware, good to check out AV dictionary per se like the case for
- Symantec SEP @ https://www.symantec.com/security_response/landing/azlisting.jsp 
- McAfee AV @ http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/us/threat-encyclopedia/malware
- Microsoft @ https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/security/portal/threat/encyclopedia/Entry.aspx

One good place to search AV names is
- Threatminer @ https://www.threatminer.org/index.php,
-  @ https://www.metaflows.com/stats/malware_names/
They may not be having all so final resort is Google which will be safer bet fro confirmation

For the family name and group, you can check out the EE article e.g. https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/21199/Ransomware-Beware.html but the Ransomware is always being updated due to growth and emerging variant and copycats, hence I suggest you can check out IDRansomware for a baseline - see its FAQ on which ransomware they detect. https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com/

For new update, follow the Bleedingcomputer, for a list of new ones in its weekly updates, one example is the recent one http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/the-week-in-ransomware-september-2nd-2016-fairware-cerber3-and-central-security-treatment-organization/

See attached. No specific hit but possibility of relation to ransomware are suggested
