The management is not too bad. You can check that the baseline compliance for below in deployment of endpoints.

-appropriate endpoint security software
-correct OS service pack
-only approved applications run
-appropriate anti-malware product and version

You should be able to set users to Observe, Warn, or Restrict access to the network if they are not compliant with the policy. There is option to allows for automatic or user-based remediation (quarantined than access when corrected analogous to NAC health check, but not to be confuse with the 802.1x aurhentication check)

For the malware Prevention it also has the sandboxing and typical av signature checks, not the leading edge but still possible to give the minimum protection including against cryptoware like this case..not totally endpoint based though

For appl control, if it is Windows can consider Applocker (Microsoft, with OS)  or Cryptoprevent (foolishIT) or SecureAPlus (SecureAge).
For malware and exploit blocks, if Windows can consider EMET (Microsoft, free download), or Malwarebytes anti-ransomware a& its anti-exploit (for oversight on browser exploit).
