Ransomware has disrupted many online users in the past few years. Finally, there is a way to avoid these malicious attacks with F-Secure’s SAFE. Its advanced behaviour protection, known as DeepGuard, is what sets F-Secure’s SAFE apart from the rest.
The new trend of cryptojacking has distracted many attackers with the sights of newer prospects to extort. This gave F-Secure the perfect opportunity to address the threat that has held millions of user’s confidential information. They have found the problem, dissected it thoroughly and as a result, came up with an effective solution to prevent attacks and the consequences thereof.
F-Secure SAFE Internet Security now includes additional behaviour-based protection capabilities that monitor selected folders for ransomware-like behaviour as part of its DeepGuard Host-based Intrusion Prevention System. In case risky behaviour is detected, the process is automatically blocked and users are warned about the potential ransomware.
In addition to regular backups, a robust internet security solution with multilayered protection is key to protecting against modern malware threats often spread through email attachments or vulnerabilities in un-patched software. Prevention is vital for combatting ransomware’s business model because even when customers pay the ransom, cyber criminals only release the encrypted data about half the time.
This new ransomware layer fits right into DeepGuard’s lightweight and comprehensive endpoint protection with minimal impact on the user experience. This seamless new layer of security is included along with SAFE’s award-winning antivirus, Browsing and Banking Protection, and Family Rules, which helps set healthy boundaries for children online.
SAFE is available for a free trial through F-Secure’s e-store, and supports Windows PCs, Macs, and Android and iOS devices. SAFE is also included in F-Secure TOTAL Security and Privacy.
