ESET Ransomware Shield
ESET has added Ransomware Shield, another layer protection, to its already existent protection technologies (Cloud Malware Protection System, Network Attack Protection and DNA detections). The feature is available for ESET home user security products on Windows.
The functionality of Ransomware Shield comprises monitoring and evaluation of all executed applications using behavioural heuristics and actively blocks known behaviours that resemble ransomware. In addition, Ransowmare Shield can also block modifications to existing files.
Ransomware Shield is active by default, and no special attention needs to be paid by the user to maintain protection until a detection is made. In that case, the user will be prompted to approve/deny a blocking action.
