Traditional antivirus relies on outdated signature-based technology that addresses threats at the execution stage of the attack chain. It’s reactive, one-dimensional, and apparently isn’t effective. Malwarebytes employs several proprietary technologies that work together to break the attack chain, from pre-delivery to post-execution.
Our platform applies the following real-time protection layers:
Prevents access to malicious websites, ad networks, scammer networks, and bad neighborhoods
Reduces vulnerability exploit surface and proactively detects fingerprinting attempts used by advanced attacks
Proactively detects and blocks attempts to abuse vulnerabilities and remotely execute code on the endpoint
Application Behavior Protection
Prevents applications from being leveraged to infect the endpoint
Proactively identifies viruses and malware through machine learning techniques
Identifies entire families of known malware with heuristic and behavioral rules
Detects and blocks ransomware via behavioral monitoring technology
More than 8 million threats detected
or blocked by Malwarebytes every
More than 187 million scans by
Malwarebytes every month
More than 247,000 installations of
Malwarebytes technology every day
Don’t take our word for it
One of the best or probably the best malware and spyware detection/elimination software there is. I’m a computer repair freelancer. I can’t tell you how many computers I’ve fixed over the years with this program.
Malwarebytes recently saved me from ransomware. Yes, I was suspicious of the download, even though I was on a reputable site. I scanned the download with McAfee–it came up clean. Once I tried to run it, however, Malwarebytes caught the ransomware and quarantined it fast enough that no files were encrypted.
Downloaded this on the recommendation of a friend. I ran a scan, and Malwarebytes removed five malwares that had my Firefox locked up tight. I love this product!
