50 percent of organizations based in the United States have been targeted by ransomware attacks over the past 12 months.

Today Malwarebytes released their latest security offering called Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware. Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware, or MBARW for short, is currently in beta and is a small utility that runs in the background while quietly monitoring computer for behavior associated with file encrypting ransomware.
