RE: Have you experienced ransomware attack so far?

Yes, and still fighting it. This is the 2nd round and fortunately we had patched most of the machines and applications containing it to a small percentage of the fleet. Our biggest issues is with Vendor managed services with most vendors saying it it not their responsibility, but we are fighting them to get them to fix the issues.
Overall, our strategy is to pull the machine off the network and re-image them as the OS patches in some cases do not fix the issue.  
We have blocked the SMB port which has helped.  
We found that laptops connected via 3G & 4G cannot receive the AV and OS patches, so we have to wait till they come in and connect via the network.
