Traditional antivirus relies on outdated signature-based technology that addresses threats at the execution stage of the attack chain.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 4 million threats detected or blocked by Malwarebytes every day
More than 93 million scans by Malwarebytes every month
290,000+ 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!
