The program is a next-generation antivirus replacement. The first of its kind for home users, the Malwarebytes app employs four independent technology modules—anti-malware, anti-ransomware, anti-exploit, and malicious website protection—to block and remove both known and unknown threats. Malwarebytes 2021 is smarter, faster, and lighter than ever before!
Features and Highlights
Protects you from advanced threats
Detects and removes malware in real-time with advanced anti-malware, anti-spyware, and anti-rootkit technology. Scans for threats automatically using artificial intelligence (AI) so you’re protected without having to even think about it.
Protects your files from being locked and held for ransom
Stops unknown and known ransomware with proprietary next-gen technology that works proactively to shield your files. This is a powerful, comprehensive defense that blocks ransomware, and not a simple decryption tool. So you’ve protected from tomorrow’s “Ransomware Attack!” headlines today.
Prevents your programs from being used against you
Wraps your web browser and software in four layers of defense, stopping attacks that use vulnerabilities in those programs to infect your computer.
Protects you from fake and infected websites
Detects and prevents contact with fake websites and malicious links. You are proactively protected from downloading malware, hacking attempts, and infected advertising. Worried about wandering into a “bad” Internet neighborhood? Now you don’t have to be.
Scans faster, scans smarter
Lightning-fast Hyper Scan mode targets only the threats that are currently active. Faster analysis. Still gets results. Run a scan in the background while you boot up your favorite game. It's done by the time you're ready to play.
Traditional antivirus relies on outdated signature-based technology that addresses threats at the execution stage of the attack chain.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 2021 latest employs several proprietary technologies that work together to break the attack chain, from pre-delivery to post-execution. The Antimalware Bytes is an amazing security app!
Malwarebytes applies the following real-time protection layers:
Prevents access to malicious websites, ad networks, scammer networks, and bad neighborhoods.
Reduces vulnerability exploit surface and proactively detects fingerprinting attempts used by advanced attacks.
Proactively detects and blocks attempts to abuse vulnerabilities and remotely execute code on the endpoint.
Application Behavior Protection
Prevents applications from being leveraged to infect the endpoint.
Proactively identifies viruses and malware through machine learning techniques.
Identifies entire families of known malware with heuristic and behavioral rules.
Detects and blocks ransomware via behavioral monitoring technology.
