I use Trend Micro to protect my home network and PCs and Android device.

This week my work network was attacked by the latest version of Shade ransom-ware: "No_Ransom".

Will Trend Micro detect any instances of this ransom-ware which may have proliferated when I used my work laptop on my home WiFi network?

Hi philip_walker and welcome to the Trend Micro Home Users Community!

May I know if your work laptop already have a Trend Micro program installed on it before the attack has happened on your workplace network?

If so, then the Trend Micro program will be able to detect and protect it from any possible ransomware attack. 

With regards to new variants of the ransomwares, we are continuously implementing detection patterns for them to protect your devices. This way, we can make sure to provide everyone a safe environment to enjoy the digital life. 

You may also setup the Folder Shield feature of your Trend Micro program for additional protection regarding this matter. The procedure for this can be found below.
