The right approach to fight Ransomware is to stop Ransomware from taking root instead of post facto detection and containment of infection.
Cybersecurity Ventures Global reports that ransomware damage costs can reach $20 billion by 2021, 57 times more than in 2015.
The current Ransomware protection approach is about detecting the malicious software based on behaviour pattern or signature and then reacting to it and trying to contain the infection and attempt for cleanup.
This approach does not prevent ransomware from attacking the enterprise infrastructure.
Right approach to fight malware is Deny all software by default on core systems and allow only approved software, cryptographically sign approved software, enable app whitelisting on the OS.
The use case document provides the insights and details on digital signature based application whitelisting and how it can prevent Ransomware from attacking the system.
