Our CryptoLocker Protection app (CryptoPrevent) does exactly that – protect from ‘CryptoLocker’ or ‘ransomware’ variants of malware.
CryptoPrevent is a robust anti-virus/anti-malware software supplement, filling a huge gap that exists with traditional security solutions to provide protection against a growing multitude of new and emerging ransomware and other malicious software threats. The app runs silently in the background, restricting unauthorised access to certain system files and folders: the ones that are usually compromised by these attacks.
It’s like a ‘digital condom’ –
a condom for a computer!
CryptoPrevent was carefully designed to co-exist alongside other solutions, as an additional layer of security that specifically tackles the danger of ‘ransomware’, whilst creating no detectable impact in normal system performance, and requiring no maintenance, specialised user knowledge, or complex installation process. All versions of Windows are supported.
CryptoPrevent was built by Foolish IT LLC, but we have had a licence to distribute this in the UK since the initial release in 2013. We’ve used the app on all our own computers, and have installed it on every client machine. You may already have heard about the application, without knowing we distribute it, as many articles and other resources have talked about and recommended it.
With the latest update to the application and enhanced functionality, we are now making it publicly available for anyone to use.
There are two versions available. The basic version is what we have installed for most Clients, and contains all the original functionality of the app. We also have a premium ‘managed’ version which has the latest upgrades enabled out of the box and also sends us an email alert if anything unusual is detected.
