    How best to combat RansomWare using McAfee ePO

    twenden

      In our environment, we are utilizing McAfee ePO 5.3.2 to manage over 2,000 systems running VirusScan 8.8i. On occasion, we see RansomWare infect several systems. Over the last few days, we saw a new strain of Cerber.

       

      In McAfee VirusScan 8.8i, I know that we could leverage the Access Protection rules. We did that to help block Wannacry. Since, there are so many variations and types of RansomWare, I would like to know what other people are using to protect against the majority of strains.

       

      I am trying to avoid hundreds of AP rules but just want a few rules that would prevent the majority of RansomWare.
