While there are a lot of ransomware removal measures out there, some don’t succeed and may even have very disastrous consequences. That being said, it has been found that the odds of any layman finding the right ransomware removal tool after the attack has triggered weren’t good. This is why we set out to test ransomware removal software on our own.
How We Tested Ransomware Removal Software
In order to test all the packages of our test we had incorporated a large variety of factors. These included whether they can detect phishing websites, common ransomware threats and how consistent they were in their overall performance. We also incorporated testing for specialty features in these products as an added bonus – such as machine learning.
The Verdict: Final 4
1. Bitdefender GravityZone Elite
Bitdefender GravityZone Elite has achieved the top spot for their offerings of a business-grade level of security. They had excellent detection capabilities and even countered some previously unknown threats effectively. Other than this, the software was able to provide awesome customization options alongside some up and coming technological capabilities for ransomware removal.
2. ESET Endpoint Protection
ESET was a software that was again introduced in the market for its target market of business clients. They delivered excellent rates of overall detection and even had a great affordable price. One thing that brought it down in our ranks was because the software seemed to have trouble working against phishing attacks. They overcame this drawback, however, by providing an excellent overall level of ransomware removal and protection.
3. F-Secure Protection Service
F-Secure, according to our findings, is the perfect choice for the protection of hosted endpoint softwares. It seemed to have been marred by its slight weakness against scripting languages (such as Ruby) and was somewhat weak in terms of its Reporting module. It made it to 3rd place on our list, however, simply because it had excellent and consistent levels of detection against scripted exploits and the detection of malware.
4. Panda Security Adaptive Defense 360
In our overall test, Panda’s software was able to soar through test against all known kinds of malware and ransomware. It slid down to 4th place only for the reason that it provided its excellent level of security and ransomware removal by limiting and restricting users while it did the job. None of its competitors on the list restricted their respective users as much as this particular software.
And with that, we would urge our readers to definitely try all 4 of these products once in order to determine which one is tailored best for their needs. We’ve already listed the drawbacks so you’ll know what to expect while testing them yourself. So what’re you waiting for?
