Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business is created to protect companies against ransomware applications that can, for example, block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.
Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business detects malicious applications or legitimate software that can be used to damage your data (adware and others) and automatically blocks suspicious activity. The application stores data areas modified by suspicious processes in the hidden and protected storage. If a suspicious process creates or modifies files or the system registry, Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business detects such changes, blocks the process, and then attempts to roll back the actions of the detected object by restoring the data areas from the protected storage. Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business is equipped with a self-protection mechanism to prevent modification or deletion of its files from the hard drive, memory processes and system registry entries.
Kaspersky Lab doesn't receive any data areas that are used by the application to roll back the actions of detected objects.
