    Hey:)

    McAfee Ransomware Interceptor (MRI) is an Anti-Ransomware tool. Ransomware malware has evolved to be a tremendous threat over the last few years. Such malware will install on your system, encrypt or damage data on your system in a way, which in many cases is irrecoverable unless you have a decryption key. Consumers may have to pay the malware authors hefty amounts of money (varies from a few 100 to a 1000 USD) for to obtain the key. Failure to do so typically results in permanent loss of data.


    this tool is new by McAfee( if it's not I didn't know about it)

    Is this stand alone or an add-on to McFee products? If the latter, does it also works with free cloud McFee?

    Yes this is stand alone and probably will work with cloud but that cloud is beta and you should ask them.
