Traditional antivirus relies on outdated signature-based technology that addresses threats at the execution stage of the attack chain.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:
The benefit of being one of the most popular cybersecurity products is more data. Millions of computers protected by Malwarebytes provide a constant stream of detection event data. We harness this telemetry to provide a more agile, dynamic response to new and unknown threats.
More than 8 million threats detected or blocked by Malwarebytes every day
More than 187 million scans by Malwarebytes every month
More than 247,000 installations of Malwarebytes technology every day
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!
