IMHO, the only real defense is a versioned filesystem and very fine,
carefully planned access controls. Any antivirus will be lacking

An additional option could be testing file integrity checks after write
(still keeping the old version) as an early warning. When a file is
silently encrypted by ransomeware, the test will fail and we'll see a
file type change and can notify the operator or the file owner.

Of course, that will only work w/ known file types, and we'd need to
write lots of checker routines.
