Malware Killchain 
WatchGuard has several methods to protect against malware and ransomware. It's important to have effective solutions at every step in the malware killchain. Watchguard offers more than one method of protection or detection at each malware killchain step.

Malware Protection Strategy

Ransomeware defense requires a three-pronged approach.
Ransomware preparation includes:
- Security awareness training for users on phishing and web browsing
- Keeping systems current with firmware/software via patching
- Effective backups that are offline, encrypted and automated along with frequent snapshots
Malware prevention includes:
- Blocking and preventing APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats) with Advanced Threat Protection
- Blocking connections back to command and control servers

Use WatchGuard solutions to protect against ransomware via full killchain coverage.
This includes detecting, blocking and then removing ransomware.

Use backups to recover from any ransomware that could not be blocked. Restore files quickly from safe backups.

Use WatchGuard technologies to help detect and block ransomware.
