General Availability of TDR Machine Learning Enhanced Host Ransomware Prevention

We are excited to announce the general availability of Machine Learning Enhanced Host Ransomware Prevention!

Ransomware authors are getting smarter and bolder. Every day they find new ways to avoid detection and steal data. TDR already protects your endpoints from devastating ransomware attacks. As ransomware attacks evolve, we must improve our ability to stop them with faster detection through machine learning.

Machine Learning for Host Ransomware Prevention

In 2018, we enhanced TDR's Detection and Response (D&R) engine with machine learning. This significantly increased our general indicator detection rate.

WatchGuard is now ready to apply those same principles to Host Ransomware Prevention (HRP). The addition of machine learning to HRP results in faster detection rates than our current detection model. With this enhancement, you will see more HRP indicators that result in remediations. 

We are excited about this new feature and protecting your endpoints for years to come.

Thank you and enjoy!
