There are two recent products for ransomware protection, however, I am not aware of very good free ones. Two good pay-fors are:
-- WinPatrol Anti-Ransom
-- Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware [BC Malware Team: is it out of beta yet? it will be combined with MBAM & MBAE, correct?]
There are some CryptoThis, That, and the Other; however, I no longer use them because some but not all will take command of your Users' AppData section, removing you from control.
