    ZoneAlarm already provide Zero-day and Ransomware protection, but this tool will be free and run alongside existing AV?

    Besides detecting and blocking (traditional features), they've advertised the feature of "Auto-restore" that "Repairs any encrypted files instantly".

    The product page says that it's compatible with all security software.

    Probably. But there are some companies that offer free anti-ransom tool as their only free product. This one can be either. Looking at their seriousness, it feels that the product will be priced, only a guess though.
    There's a waiting list for the Beta testing for the tool. I will try and test the tool when special RW samples are posted.

    Starting from the execution, new ransomware variants need a few seconds to start the encryption process.
    So security solutions and specific antiransomware have to detect some indicators as new unique processes, calls to specific Windows libraries, execution in unusual directories like TEMP/Recycling Bin, deletion of Volume Shadow Copies etc.

    What I want to say is that a antiransomware must have a quick-time intervention to block, especially, the fast malware encryption process.
    Otherwise we will see the ransomware detected, but our files encrypted anyway.

    All it says it's a 60-day Beta license, nothing post-beta.

    It's a beta product and did you report your findings to ZoneAlarm? Did you check for any Known Issues with this beta build?

    Same here. Signup button won't work in Android or Desktop client.

    Did you use the first link itself to signup for beta? If no, please share the working link here.

    I also tried on the day of posting, with android and desktop browsers with adblock disabled. Still no luck. Probably the first link has got issues.

    Alright, this should be another way, and should work. I didn't try this one yet.
