We do a lot of the typical Virus/Malware prevention, but need to enhance it. Currently using Webroot secureanywhere, MalwareBytes Pro, OpenDSN Umbrella, and Email filtering. We already have FSRM enabled and tested, and good GPO's and File Shares on lockdown.


Is Cryptoprevent still reccomended? Or is there something else out there we can add to our tool belt? I know Malwarebytes has a Anti-ransomware package in beta, but it has been for quite some time, and I need something now.
