Malwarebytes 3.0 is a next-gen security app, which replaces the hugely popular ‘Malwarebytes Anti-Malware’ and ‘Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit’ products. This fresh, new product, delivers the most powerful security possible, and protects you from the most advanced (zero-day) threats, making antivirus’ obsolete.
Security specialists Malwarebytes have taken their game to the next level with this latest offering. This new product not only replaces Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, but it also betters them. Malwarebytes 3.0 combines all of the previous malware-fighting technology, anti-malware, anti-ransomware, anti-exploit and malicious website protection, and wraps them into a solid app that comes with a sleek new interface that is able to scan 4x faster than previous versions of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium.
Key Features include:
- Protects you from advanced (zero-day) threats, including ransomware, so you can surf the Web without worry.
- Removes all traces of malware for complete safety.
- Removes potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that make your computer run poorly.
- Scans fast so you don’t have to sit around and wait for your security to finish working.
- Easy to use, just set it and forget it.
- Can replace antivirus or run alongside other antivirus programs.
The great thing about Malwarebytes 3.0 is that it has been specifically designed to replace your existing Antivirus. The app uses signature-less and behavior-based detection technologies to catch the latest and most dangerous threats out there. A standard Antivirus program relies on large databases of signatures, which can, and often do, become outdated quickly. Standard Antivirus programs are typically ineffective against many advanced threats. Malwarebytes 3.0 can successfully replace all your current antivirus products as your primary cybersecurity solution.
Please note, this is trial version of the app. The new price for Malwarebytes 3.0 is $39.99/year for 1 PC for the full version.
