Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware – uses advanced proactive technology that monitors what ransomware is doing and stops it cold before it even touches your files. Ransomware is easy to understand but hard to beat. It infects the machine, encrypts all files and then demands payment to get the files back. Ransomware works so well that most variants will even remove themselves when the damage is done, knowing you have the choice of either paying the ransomware author to get your files back, or risk losing them forever.
With this app, it has no shot at encrypting. And it does not rely on signatures or heuristics, so it’s light and completely compatible with your antivirus.
This means when running Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware, you do not have to worry about getting infected by CryptoLocker, CryptoWall, or CTBLocker. Better yet, it can defeat new ransomware the moment it is released, proactively protecting you from ransomware that’s never even been seen before.
