And a even better measure is to Password protect the Admin/Owner account and keep locked until there is needed software update to access and update and then make a limited user account and only use that for everything prevent malware/ransomware infections. And to stay away from those Pron site and dark sites and Nigeria Money scams would go along way to stop ransomware infections.

I am always suspicious of free stuff that purports to help you, but in this case it appears Cybereason is certainly legit!? And I found the reason they would make it free, that being that when their tool detects a ransomware, it sends the data about it to their server, thereby (no doubt) helping them to find and solve new threats which they need to support their big-buck corporate clients.

The new version of MalwareBytes free supports Ramsomware detection also, plus many other things like rootkits and you can buy the Premium version for dirt cheap and it supports everything automatically
