Security App of the Week: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

This week we’ll take a look at another security tool that’s great for users who want to enhance their computer’s protection measures. It’s called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it’s highly capable when it comes to protecting your digital assets against common and uncommon threats.

Most Internet users have a favorite antivirus application and unless something really serious happens – such as causing the operating system to crash -, they tend to stick by it.

But whether you’re a fan of Symantec, Kaspersky, avast!, McAfee, ESET, Avira or other popular commercial solution, it never hurts to have a backup security application. Something that quietly sits in a corner (or the system tray) and catches the malicious elements that evade your main program.

This is where Malwarebytes Anti-Malware steps in. If you want enhanced capabilities, or you’re not committed to any other antivirus solutions, you can pay the $25 (20 EUR) for the PRO edition which offers real-time protection, fast scanning and other sophisticated features.

On the other hand, if you’re not willing to invest any money the free variant is also more than decent when it comes to identifying malware and it works in perfect harmony with other products.

It’s easy to install, it doesn’t eat up a lot of system resources, and its interface is designed to allow even inexperienced customers to use it.

The tool allows you to perform quick scans, full scans and even flash scans (available in the PRO version).

In the tests performed by Softpedia around one year ago, the application identified around 78% of the malware samples. However, in the meantime, its detection capabilities have most likely increased.

Furthermore, during the testing process, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware identified threats previously undetected by some highly popular solutions.

Existing customers claim that it’s the best security application they have ever had, so if you want to change your current antivirus, or you simply want to enhance your computer’s protection, check out Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
