    Never heard of them, hopefully Cruel Sister will check it out. The GUI seems to be very basic, and too bad they didn't release technical info, about how exactly it tries to tackle ransomware.

    Not worth your time. Tried it earlier on a new Locky and a Cerber3. Failed on both.

    You may have heard of one their other products, Trojan Killer. I got their Anti-Malware software as a giveaway at Giveaway of The Day, but uninstalled it due to excessive false positives.

    Yeah, I've used GridinSoft Anti-Malware as well and there are way too many false positives. It also has a bad detection rate, judging from the video by TPSC.
