Windows 11 should be better at ransomware attacks

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint cybersecurity platform

Windows 11 is about to get improvements to the Microsoft Defender for Endpoint cybersecurity platform so it is better at protecting users from ransomware and other “advanced attacks”

Writing in the Volish bog, Microsoft's Beta Channel launch comes with a handful of new features and upgrades, including one which, “enhanced Microsoft Defender for Endpoint’s ability to identify and intercept ransomware and advanced attacks.”

Vole has gotten better at deploying ransomware across organisations to the point where cybersecurity firms, are urging organisations not to pay the ransom, as there is no guarantee they’ll get their data back, and no guarantee they won’t be attacked again.

RDP remains the top method for initial access in ransomware deployments, with groups specialising in compromising RDP endpoints and selling them to others for access.
