    Hello All,

    Due to huge raise of ransomware virus, I want to add one more layer to computers at our office which are in Workgroup network. As we are not in Domain, I cannot apply Software Restriction Policies Blacklisting/whitelisting applications, so I am searching for easy approach and I found CryptoPrevent as a free software which does things similar to SRP.

    Does someone using it ? how's it effective ?

    Because we have 40+ workgroup computers and I don't want to mess with Local Group Policies with each pc and I feel CryptoPrevent kind of software will be easier, but for sure, it should be effective !!

    Thanks for reply !!
