Traditional antivirus relies on outdated signature-based technology that addresses threats at the execution stage of the attack chain.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 employs several proprietary technologies that work together to break the attack chain, from pre-delivery to post-execution.
Our platform 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
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
The benefit of being one of the most popular cybersecurity products is more data. Millions of computers protected by Malwarebytes provide a constant stream of detection event data. We harness this telemetry to provide a more agile, dynamic response to new and unknown threats.
More than 8 million threats detected or blocked by Malwarebytes every day
More than 187 million scans by Malwarebytes every month
More than 247,000 installations of Malwarebytes technology every day
