Forget antivirus programs, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium is the next gen security you want. What can it do that an antivirus cannot? The program has a far superior detection rate than traditional antivirus software.
A lot of people think that blocking viruses, malware, etc, is enough. What about the actual thing which the programs need to do, removing malware? This is where Malwarebytes really excels, it can cleanse the malware completely, leaving no traces behind. We have seen it quarantine and delete even the most stubborn malware, which deeply embed themselves in the Windows system folders. Not only that, it also repairs the files which were attacked by rootkits, which no antivirus does.
The default Hyper Scan which scans running programs, is so fast that it finished quickly even when you are working with other applications in the program. You have options to scan custom folders and files, or the computer’s hard drive completely for malware.
The application runs in the background silently in real-time, monitoring the applications which are running, and checks their file signature with the malware database. And it also checks the running processes for signs of malicious behavior. This way, even new malware which is yet to be identified as a known threat, is quarantined.
So, let’s say there is a new ransomware on the loose, and manages to find its way on to your computer, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium will detect the threat when it begins to encrypt your files, and stop it before it can infect your computer, thus saving you from a real headache.
A rather unique feature in the program is the way it protects third-party applications. Malwarebytes uses its anti-exploit shield to prevent security vulnerabilities in your web browser and other programs from being attacked by malware.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware can scan, detect and remove spyware, trojans, and other malware, and even catch PUPs, which are bundled in regular programs. The application can also block websites which are dangerous, or infected pages from loading, to prevent infections.
The advantage of using the premium version, is that it can automatically download updates and scan your PC on a regular schedule, so you don’t have to.
