    In an indicator of just how large a threat ransomware has become, Trend Micro has launched a multifaceted ransomware practice.

    The company said that it has blocked more than 100 million ransomware threats for their customers in the last six months alone, with 99% of threats blocked from email and web traffic. Against this backdrop, it has debuted a suite of new offerings: Ransomware Readiness Assessment, which helps businesses of all sizes understand vulnerabilities in their security posture, and provides concrete actions they can take; Ransomware Hotlines, which provide advice on ransomware prevention and recovery to all US consumers and Trend Micro U.S. business customers; and Ransomware Removal Tools that help both consumers and businesses that have been impacted by ransomware recover their data.

    “Trend Micro is actively assessing the threat of ransomware and acting to protect against it,” said Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro. “We understand this pervasive form of cyberattack can be debilitating to enterprises, regardless of size or industry, and can cause grave amounts of stress and costs to consumers. Trend Micro business and consumer products have been tuned to deliver the best protection against ransomware. Our ransomware recovery tools and phone hotlines leverage the threat expertise within Trend Micro to deliver always-on support and help customers to prepare for the possibility of an attack, or quickly if they’ve already been hit.”

    Great move on behalf of Trend Micro.

    Ransomware has indeed proven to be a formidable threat against the financial status of users and enterprised alike, while at the same time it poses a threat for the integrity of the users' data.

    Specialized software that target this threat type is bound to be sought after by end-users and businesses alike.

    One of the pioneers in this type of security software was Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware, which had a sucessful launch and it was accepted by their customer base.

    Well, we can accurately say that on the back of this wave of Ransomware rides Trend Micro attempting to turn around their reputation
    and standings in the consumers eye. I hope they make the best of it this time.
    It will be interesting to watch to say the least.
    Great share my friend.

    good strategy for trend micro. ransomware-focused product is unavoidable considering ever-growing ransomware threat and it's financial damage. I believe more AV vendor will be join this trend. I noticed that emsisoft, malwarebytes, winpatrol (win anti ransom), kaspersky and eset have been goes under same direction with trend micro.
