Detect and remove malware at speed with the premium version of the fast and accurate security package
Malwarebytes 3.0 is the next generation of the popular malware killer, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
The product is a combination of every Malwarebytes technology, including anti-malware, anti-exploit, anti-ransomware, web protection and more.
The interface is straightforward and familiar. A dashboard displays your current status, you can launch a scan with a click, and most of the time there's nothing else to do at all.
This doesn't mean you won't notice any changes. Despite all the extra technologies, for instance, Malwarebytes says system scans are now 3x to 4x faster.
Experienced users will also find an array of options, switches and settings to help tweak the program.
To take a single example, you don't just have an option to turn the anti-exploit on or off. You can also configure 6 separate six component technologies (DEP, anti-heapspraying, ASLR, more), eight memory protection methods, five application behaviour checks, five Java technologies, and individually define the types of apps where each of these will be used (browsers, Office, PDF readers, media players, more).
It's worth noting that the Premium version offered here is an unlimited lifetime, non-expiring license. Malwarebyte's v3 has recently moved to an annual subscription model, where any license purchased will only run for 12 months before you have to renew it. By contrast, the Premium license you purchase here will never expire, so you’ll be able to enjoy that extra layer of protection in perpetuity.
Includes a 1-PC, lifetime license.
