Security has long existed in the computer world. With the inclusion of ransomware in the growing list of malicious software on the planet, things have taken a worse turn recently. This group of viruses is arguably the worst there. After the computer becomes infected, the program encrypts all data on the hard drive and requires a ransom payment in Bitcoins. Types of such viruses include TeslaCrypt, Locky, Petya, and CTB-Locker. This program provides excellent protection against this toxic malware. This provides a non-intrusive way to prevent these programs from encrypting your files.
The program uses digital vaccination technology to keep the system from becoming infected. Cybercriminals do not intend to infect the system twice as it is impossible to unlock the drive after receiving a double payload. So the virus detects a specific file and bypasses the system if it is present. This program does an excellent job of introducing a previously infected vaccine system, thereby preventing an attack. This program effectively prevents four types of ransomware. However, it is important to constantly back up your files and keep your computer up to date with the latest patches.
