Ransomware is malicious software, designed to block data access in order to extort money. As a form of malware, ransomware is most often used to infiltrate devices through infected emails or links that, in turn, recognize and take advantage of vulnerabilities in the operating system and installed third-party software.

I had this question after viewing anti virus software protecting against ransom ware.

Is this for a single computer or network of them?  

The best and cheapest protection is a solid regular backup of your system. Windows 10 has built in backup utilities.

I am looking for a product I can put on 4 personal computers windows 10,8,7 so I can defend my new and old computers

Free Backup Tool for VMware and Hyper-V

Restore full virtual machine or individual guest files from 19 common file systems directly from the backup file. Schedule VM backups with PowerShell scripts. Set desired time, lean back and let the script to notify you via email upon completion.  

What's a good option ?

If we get hit with ransom ware want to have a cloud option in place

Something not too expensive

We are looking for a software that we can install  on a server that contains critical information that detects and prevents ransomware aggressively.  Something that we can literally halt it in its tracks and lock down any ports etc open areas in comes in.  

Thanks

Dears,

I have a small network of 5 PCs and a server that is mainly used for sharing data between the users.

I am thinking of a "way" of backing up the data and "be safe" from malware and ransomware.

If I get 2 NAS (the data I am to backup is around 1TB). and both NAS are configured to backup the data at night.
So in theory I have then 3 copies of the data (the original +2 NAS).
My problem is that in order to be 99.99% safe, I need that once I do a backup (which is at night) I need to disconnect the NAS from the LAN so that if meanwhile I get hit,then my backup is safe.

I need a mechanism where by once my backup is done , my NAS  disconnects from the LAN.

How can I achieve this ?
The NAS I have are QNAP 4 bays).

Thanks

We have a few small clients where in place we have a Netgear FVS 336v3, which is a simple firewall at best.  Using Worryfree 9.0 and moving to Worryfree 9.5 (which although Trend is not being specific), it "supposed to not allow encryption of 3 files within a 30 second period"  I can't get proof of this. Under behavior monitoring in 9.x there are settings to prevent encrypting files, a site of ours although configured correctly to prevent encryption was just compromised. Lost about 2000 files. .aes extension.  All systems are patched pretty much up to date with generally a two week lag (unless a serious security vulnerability).  We NEED to prevent any future ransomware attacks.
Based on experience what would be the best practices/enhancements that you guys are using?  
Are Trend products not reliable?  Do I really need to beef up the firewall to like a low-end sonicwall for all?
They also require ipsec or other means of VPNing in which is a built-in feature of the fvs336G.
Any/suggestions/ideas - would be appreciated!
Thanks guys so much!

Hello,

one of my co-workers got himself infected with the nasty Osiris randsomware.

I think we got it removed using multiple tutorials online, but I was unable to find a took to decrypt the files modified and make them work again. Kaspersky seams to have multiple tools, but nothing for Osiris.

Any ideas?
