Anti-ransomware is a protection solution against ransomware. It usually functions as a part of a larger suite of cybersecurity products, as opposed to a stand-alone option.
A combined anti-ransomware solution uses a variety of means to detect and block ransomware attacks, in order to minimize the possibility of a successful attack.
The best anti-ransomware solutions, such as Dynamic Ransomware Defense, can detect anomalies in email attachments, URLs and domains. Ideally, anti-ransomware on a device will block the user from opening malicious attachments, or clicking on dangerous links - both of which are typical entry points for ransomware.
