Cybereason RansomFree is a free anti-ransomware tool for Windows, that provides a behavioral-based protection against ransomware threats. its unique behavioral approach stops ransomware in its tracks and is able to detect and block 99% of ransomware threats including never-seen-before types and new strains such as Petya/NotPetya.

Cybereason RansomFree is developed by an elite, former military cyber security experts to ensure that valuable data, whether it’s a person’s wedding photos or a company’s product roadmaps, won’t be held hostage by criminals.

The main reason ransomware attacks are so successful is that traditional antivirus software cannot detect them. New variants of ransomware are developed every day, so signature-based defenses can’t identify and protect an organization from the ransomware causing damage. In addition, many types of ransomware are polymorphic, meaning it generates a new hash every time it propagates to avoid detection.

Cybereason researched tens of thousands of ransomware variants belonging to over 40 ransomware strains, including Locky, Cryptowall, TeslaCrypt, Jigsaw and Cerber and identified the behavioral patterns that distinguish ransomware from legitimate applications.

While each ransomware strain was written by different criminal teams, they all exhibit the same low-level file-related behavior. Ransomware attempts to encrypt as many files as possible, as quickly as possible.

RansomFree will protect from encryption of files on local as well as on a network or shared drives. The encryption of shared files is among the doomsday scenarios an organization can imagine. It requires only one employee on the network to execute ransomware and affect the entire company.

RansomFree catches stand-alone ransomware programs as well as fileless ransomware. Stand-alone ransomware uses vulnerabilities in applications, like buggy Flash code, but fileless ransomware abuses legitimate Windows tools, like the PowerShell scripting language or JavaScript, to carry out its malicious intentions.

Key Features:

  • Keep your important files safe from ransomware
  • Stay immune to the latest ransomware threats
  • Protection from an array of Ransomware attacks
  • Protects against local, network or shared drives encryption
  • Alert you when there is a suspicious activity
  • Low on system resources
