Again and again. . . Sorry for my English. . . It is not an official language.
 
With the constant and growing threats of zero day malware, ransomware:.
 
Questions:
 
1. What is the most effective mechanism to deal with these types of threats? Equipment that works as HIPS or behavior blockers, thinking more strongly about the basic user, since the vast majority will not know what to do when they have to opt at the moment To apply one or the other button, when choosing between lock and not lock. . .
 
2. Which security suites have behavior blockers, and those that have HIPS, and those that offer both.
 
3. How to make sure it is treated when it appears to block, files that do not identify to which software or activity is associated, such as, information exclusively composed of numbers;
 
4. For intermediate users, Bitdefender, Avira, Panda, all free, associated with the VodooShield application, would be well protected;
 
5. Lay users, which would be the most suitable security suites.
 
Thank you for your attention!
 
Regards

Now, thinking of users who can not afford paid suites as well as little knowledge in IT, leaving the antivirus work harder, since by experience, as people who use Windows, more than 90% sit down the equipment. . . Would free antivirus have the ability to analyze behavior and easily mark the ransomware attack, for example?

Avast 2017 Free protects you from ransomware

 

However, you get what you pay for and free is not always the best solution. You may want to read:
