Ransomware infects your computer, encrypts all files and blocks you from accessing them, and then demands payment to get the files back. Ransomware is not a new type of infection, but it's still really dangerous because of its high efficiency at bringing harm to your data. If you've also acknowledged that ignoring this kind of malware is definitely a bad idea and as a result you started looking for reliable anti-ransomware solutions, then you should start with giving a try to Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware. It may be a tool still in its beta stages, but it's developed by the consecrated Malwarebytes team that also produced the popular and reliable anti-malware tool, so it's largely guaranteed to be effective.

Another advantage brought by Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware is the fact that it uses an advanced proactive technology based on constant monitoring instead of relying on signatures or heuristic-based detection. Three main benefits results from this: the first is that this anti-ransomware solution is both lightweight and fully compatible with other antivirus products that you have installed on your computer, the second is that it's highly-effective at stopping ransomware before it gets to affect your files, and the third is that it's capable of stopping any kind of ransomware, may it be CryptoLocker, CryptoWall, CTBLocker, Tesla, or even new, yet-undiscovered variants.

Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware is also simple to use and straightforward. Its minimalistic interface will pose no problems to anyone.

In conclusion, Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware is a great choice if you want to protect your data against the serious threat posed by ransomware.
