"Surely a threat detection system can notice that a lot of files are being encrypted and pop up a warning to block that process and let you know. So why is there no universal endpoint protection system that does this, in fact this should be baked in to the OS by now.?"

Malwarebytes claims that their Endpoint Security product for businesses will do this. They also have a free anti-ransomware product for desktops (beta for past year).
