What is Malwarebytes?

"Malwarebytes is an Anti-Malware security solution for business and personal use."

Malwarebytes is a premium security solution for businesses that works as an addition to traditional anti-virus products. It is focused on protection against ransomware, malware, threats and infected sites with the capability of removing annoying adware and toolbars that other security applications miss.

It works easily in tandem with other antivirus tools, adding powerful anti-exploit and anti-ransomware monitoring capacity. One of its most powerful features is the real-time protection. The program not only blocks threats from infecting the system but also generates an image and sound-based alert that attracts the attention of its users.

Another feature that stands out is the Anti-Exploit tool. It monitors for infections that get into a user's computer through software defects instead of malware. There is also the Chameleon tool, a countermeasure against sorts of malware that attempt to impair anti-malware programs on the computers they infect.

Malwarebytes scored 85/100 in the Cyber & Data Security category. This is based on user satisfaction (77/100), press buzz (54/100), and other relevant information on Malwarebytes gathered from around the web.

// Infrastructure Engineer at X-Net Solutions

What do you like about Malwarebytes?

Malwarebytes it is one of the best anti-malware and hacking protection tools on the market. Well-know, easy to use and very efficient.
