Below show important setting to prevent ransomware at our best effort.
1) Hourly update for both Product and Signature.
Advanced Threat Control – A features continuously monitors the applications running on the endpoint, looking for malware-like actions. It is an innovative proactive detection technology which uses advanced heuristic methods to detect new potential threats in real time.
Ransomware Vaccine – Bitdefender Labs analysis the behaviour of widespread ransomware, and new signatures are delivered with each malware signature update, to address the latest threats.
3) Traffic Scanning
Scan SSL – Enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) web traffic to be inspected by the Bitdefender security agent’s protection modules.
Show browser toolbar – informs users about the rating of the web pages they are viewing.
Browser Search Advisor – Rates the results of Google, Bing and Yahoo! searches, as well as links from Facebook and Twitter, by placing an icon in front of every result.
Incoming emails (POP3) – and web traffic are scanned in real time to prevent malware from being downloaded to the endpoint.
Outgoing emails (SMTP) – Scan to prevent malware from infecting other endpoints.
NOTE: Scanning the web traffic may slow down web browsing a little, but it will block malware coming from the Internet, including drive-by downloads.
4) Web Control
Protection against fraud – Extend protection to other types of scams besides phishing.
For example: websites representing fake companies, which do not directly request private information, but instead try to pose as legitimate businesses and make a profit by tricking people into doing business with them.
Protection against phishing – Keep this option selected to protect users against phishing attempts.
Misc: If you installed the Firewall Modules
Block port scans – Port scans are frequently used by hackers to find out which ports are open on a computer. They might then break into the computer if they find a less secure or vulnerable port.
Monitor Wi-Fi connections – Bitdefender security agent can inform users connected to a Wi-Fi network when a new computer joins the network. To display such notifications on the user’s screen, select this option.
Log verbosity level – Bitdefender security agent maintains a log of events regarding the Firewall module usage (enabling/disabling firewall, traffic blocking, modifying settings) or generated by the activities detected by this module (scanning ports, blocking connection attempts or traffic according to the rules). Choose an option from the Log verbosity level to specify how much information the log should include.
Intrusion Detection System – monitors the system for suspicious activities (for example: unauthorized attempts to alter the Bitdefender files, DLL injections, keylogging attempts etc.)
