Ransomware Protection

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks users from accessing their system by locking the system's screen or by encrypting files. Ransomware protection monitors the behavior of applications and processes that try to modify your personal data. If an application's behavior is considered malicious or reputation-based scanning shows an application to be suspicious, the application is blocked or the user will be asked to block or allow it.


ESET Live Grid must be enabled for Ransomware protection to function properly.
