Traditional antivirus relies on outdated signature-based technology that addresses threats at the execution stage of the attack chain.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 15 million threats detected or blocked every day
More than 9.2 billion threats detected or blocked since 2015
More than 1.3 million ransomware threats detected or blocked in 2017 (so far)
More than 130,000 WannaCry ransomware infections blocked in the first week of the outbreak
More than 200k downloads 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!
