"Malwarebytes Keeps our Computers Safe!"

What do you like best?

With all the computer work being executed in our office, we love how Malwarebytes keeps our computers safe with allowing us to occasionally check our systems for Malware. This is especially important as we have music albums, website content, and word documents among other files that, if hacked, could damage our computer systems and our customers' computer systems! This is why we love Malwarebytes: it keeps our systems safe!

What do you dislike?

We dislike how Malwarebytes is used by Apple, Inc. We believe that Apple Inc. should have its own system, as Malwarebytes should take all the credit for its amazing features. When we occasionally take our computers to the Genius Bar, Apple Inc. uses Malwarebytes to check on our computers. We believe that they should not be using Malwarebytes in their services; Malwarebytes is so beneficial that it should have every right to maintain its own support desk.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Review Malwarebytes, and give it the credit that it deserves. Keeping your computer systems safe and secure is a valuable asset.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Malwarebytes helps us fish out dangerous pieces of malware in our systems. With so much file transfers going on, we cannot keep up with all the dangers of our site, or the vulnerability of our ad-hoc networks. Malwarebytes helps us make sure that our computers stay clean, so that we can continue to edit content and create content that is valuable and safe for our customers and business partners.

"The best choice"

What do you like best?

Malwarebytes is a very easy-to-use application that can help people fight malware. According to its creators, people should use the PREMIUM version, which provides real-time protection, much faster scans, and also allows scheduling of scans or updates to the database.

387/5000

The program is available in several languages and has no problem running alongside to other anti-virus or anti-spyware programs. Malwarebytes scans stand out for their speed. However, this does not have a visible impact on the use of the CPU. Thanks to its advanced technology, malware is not able to block Malwarebytes scans and prevent their removal.

Malwarebytes is particularly good at finding and erasing potentially unwanted programs (PUPs).

These are not viruses so they might not be picked up by your regular security software, but they鈥檙e a nuisance.

What do you dislike?

However, there are some drawbacks that must be mentioned: the Malwarebytes bonus and the real-time protection are only obtained with the PREMIUM version and, really, it is a program to fight only against malware, so it can not be compared with the most powerful software that exists.

Sometimes the product is slow and unstable. The product consumes too much memory and CPU resources.

Price list is diferent is each country.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always buy the premium version

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Several security issues as:

-Virus

-Phishing

-Ramsonware

-Adware

-Malware

"The definitive cleaning tool"

What do you like best?

Malwarebytes it's a tool to clean your computer of virus, malware's and Trojans. It's very fast and effective, with just 10 minutes you can get your computer totally clean. The application creates a quarantine folder where store the malicious files before delete, since you can decide if it's a virus or not during the next days.

What do you dislike?

The premium application integrates some tools that are not fully necessary and spends much Ram memory, but the simple free application works perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Malwarebytes it's a free application in the basic version that allows you to clean your computer better than much antivirus. Its easy to use and with 3 clicks you can get your computer clean.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Malwarebytes in all of my Windows computers to clean once at week form scam, virus, malware's... It takes a few minutes in my computers and every week find some thread.

"No hay Malware que se le resista"

What do you like best?

Es el complemento perfecto para cualquier antivirus, ya que MalwareBytes est谩 especializado en la detecci贸n de malware (y en su eliminaci贸n si el ordenador ya est谩 infectado).

Ofrece hasta cuatro niveles de protecci贸n en tiempo real que puedes activar o desactivar individualmente: protecci贸n web, contra exploits, contra malware y contra ransomware.

Tambi茅n permite hacer an谩lisis de tres tipos: r谩pido, personalizado y de amenazas (que es el recomendado por el propio programa, y que yo realizo diariamente en mi port谩til).

He de aclarar que existen dos versiones, la premium y la gratuita (que no ofrece esa protecci贸n en tiempo real tan efectiva, aunque s铆 que permite hacer an谩lisis del equipo). En otros programas no hay mucha diferencia de prestaciones, pero en el caso de MalwareBytes creo que merece la pena hacer una peque帽a inversi贸n econ贸mica en seguridad y adquirir la versi贸n Premium.

What do you dislike?

Yo no encuentro nada mejorable (puede que lo haya pero yo no sabr铆a como mejorarlo).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es un programa de los que hay que tener.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No conozco ning煤n programa tan eficaz eliminando malwre, si aparece alguno solventa el problema de inmediato.

"Recommended antimalware"

What do you like best?

It has an awesome detection rate, finding all types of malware or dangerous files that enter the computer. It has a free version that is very light and efficient that is normaly for personal use, but also works great for work enviroments.

What do you dislike?

Since I started using it I havent found anything I dislike other than recently they automatically activate the 14 day trial for the premium version and can confuse some users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Malwarebytes its a great software that will absolutely help in maintaining clean your computer of the hazardous malware and other dangeours programs to your computer. I recommend its use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our computers are clean of malware as we have an scheduled task to run every day when system shutdowns. It cleans every day a minimum of 30 threats, proving its effectivenes on a daily basis.

"Must have tool for malware detector and cleaner"

What do you like best?

The tool is avaible in 2 versions:

The free version has all you need to stay safe on the web; i.e. nice summary dashboard, manual scansion, auto update, report post analysis and so on...

The paid version includes features like automatic and scheduled scansion, and realtime protection.

What do you dislike?

The licence is a bit expensive and the performance could be better, especially when you need to download a new update.

The GUI could improve becoming more modern and user friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For my necessities the free version is enough and I don't think, for now, to switch to the paid version.

I absolutely recommend this software and, if you don't need a realtime protection, choose the free version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this tool we feel safer when we use the pc daily, in particular while surfing the internet

"El peor enemigo del Malware"

What do you like best?

No hay problema que resista a esta herramienta. Es increible la capacidad de encontrar y eliminar software da帽ino. Su potencia radica en su sencillez de uso y en la rapidez de las inspecciones. Pero pese a la rapidez con la que se ejecuta la b煤squeda, esta es muy completa y no suele escaparse nada (es importante tener actualizada la base de datos de malware continuamente y antes de cada an谩lisis)

What do you dislike?

Una pena que la versi贸n gratuita no incluya m谩s caracter铆sticas, casi todo esta incluido en la versi贸n de pago. La gratuita no tiene protecci贸n en tiempo real, solo es bajo demanda, es decir que si no ejecutas un an谩lisis no detecta el malware. La versi贸n PRo impide la ejecuci贸n del malware directamente al tener ejecuci贸n en tiempo real.

Recommendations to others considering the product

si no lo has probado, deber铆as instalarlo, Hacer un scan del equipo y te sorprender谩s, te lo garantizo. Y una vez hagas eso y veas el resultado comprender谩s porque es tan necesario.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

es sin duda una herramienta a tener en cuenta y necesaria en los equipos. Adem谩s si dispones de los medios necesarios o en los equipos manejas informaci贸n cr铆tica para tu organizaci贸n, en ese caso deber铆as plantearte tener licencia profesional para estar protegido totalmente.

"Mejor antiMalware, incluso en Android"

What do you like best?

En pc, en android... en cualquier dispositvo que tengas puedes tener instalado MalwareBytes y asegurarte de que siempre estas bien protegido ante cualquier malware. Sin duda este es uno de esos programas en los que pagar la versi贸n pro es un plus y la licencia no es muy cara. Permite adem谩s de tener a raya los programas maliciosos, mantener el equipo limpio de archivos inservibles y optimizar los recursos. NO es solo un antimalware al uso, va un poco mas all谩 permitiendo al usuario tener el control sobre otros aspectos del equipos y la limpieza y desinfecci贸n de los mismos.

What do you dislike?

no tiene nada negativo. que puede haber negativo en un software de este tipo, capaz de salvar tu equipo e informaci贸n de los malware mas peligrosos actuales, incluso tu dispositivo movil, ese con el que te conectas a infinidad de redes wifi sobre las que no tienes ningun control (cafeterias, centros comerciales, tiendas, comercios, casas de familiares...), en cualquier momento puedes ser victima de un malware y si no tienes algo como Malware bytes probablemente ni sepas que tu terminal est谩 infectado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

que m谩s a帽adir respecto a lo dicho anteriormente, nada m谩s se puede a帽adir... hay que probarlo para saber lo que es y como funciona. Sin duda un programa a tener en cuenta y a tener habilitado en todos tus dispositivos

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Es algo que esta habilitado en todos los equipos, aunque no en todos contamos con licencia profesional, en muchos casos la gratuita y unas buenas pautas sobre seguridad son m谩s que suficientes.

"Good protection against malwares !"

What do you like best?

I've been using this software for more than 2 years , the main things i like about it are :

+ User-friendly interface

+ Good against all sort of Malwares/adware

+ Web protection , many times the software blocked a lot of harming domains when i was surfing the net

+ Don't need/use a lot of system resources

+ Fast scan time

+ Good price tag

+ Rootkit detection

+ Zero influence on computer speed

+ Excellent Performance

+ Active ransomware protection

What do you dislike?

We all know that Malwarebyte is an Anti-malware / Anti-ransomware / Anti-exploit / and have Malicious website protection , but it's not a full protection suite that you can install alone and have a fully protected network if you own a corporation or a small business company ! the software need a lot of development in term of Centralized management , Remote deployment, Advanced reporting and monitoring.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend buying the premium edition instead of opting for the free version because it don't have real time protection .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Malwarebyte works like charm against Ransomware that has become very common over the past few years. Attacks of this nature can lead to a devastating consequences. So far its doing a well done job.

"Best antimalware ever"

What do you like best?

herramienta de limpieza y desinfecci贸n de malware en los equipos. Es muy potente y facil de usar. La descarga es gratuita y puedes probar la versi贸n completa durante 15 d铆as. Una vez expira el plazo decides si pagas o sigues con la versi贸n gratuita, la cual tambi茅n es muy completa y eficiente. La instalaci贸n es intuitiva y no intenta colar publicidad, cosa que otros productos de este tipo si intentan y al final dudas de si realmente estas adquiriendo un producto de limpieza cuando te quiere instalar porquer铆a... Los an谩lisis son r谩pidos y funciona a muchos niveles. Tambi茅n hay que indicar que estas herramientas no hacen m谩gia, si tu mismo instalas un virus o lo ejecutas, estos programas no siempre son efectivos. Sin embargo, Cookies maliciosas, Publicidad y dem谩s, eso lo fulmina.

What do you dislike?

no he detectado puntos negativos ni problemas en su funcionamiento. Es una herramienta increible para mantener los equipos revisados y limpios.

Recommendations to others considering the product

el mejor antimalware, la versi贸n gratuita es mas que suficiente para mantener limpios los equipos, pero si necesitas algo m谩s profesional y protecci贸n en tiempo real, existe la opci贸n de pagar licencia para la versi贸n completa.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Esta presente en todos los equipos de la organizaci贸n, los usuarios estan mentalizados de que la seguridad es algo prioritario, y que los datos con los que se trabaja no se pueden exponer, por lo tanto tenemos habilitadas las mejores herramientas y medidas de seguridad en todos los equipos.

"the best malaware destroyer"

What do you like best?

I can keep my computer at bay from annoying viruses, it protects me effectively and its interface is very easy to use, it detects and destroys all kinds of worms, trojans, spyware, bots, rogues, among others.

What do you dislike?

the free interface has certain functions that the pro does not have, I think they should leave some functions of the pro version to the free one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

keep your computer protected is very important because there are your files and personal information protect yourself with this powerful antivirus.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have it installed on my personal computer to remove any malware or virus that tries to infect my computer, I have defended myself from several attempts of Trojans and some worms of web pages destined to this.

"A Fantastic piece of anti-malware software. "

What do you like best?

Malwarebytes is a very robust suite of threat protection software. We currently use their anti-malware, anti-exploit, and anti-ransomware software. Before we had switched to Malwarebytes we were getting ransomware attacks on PC's on a monthly basis. After we implemented Malwarebytes we have not had a single successful malware/ransomware attack in over 3 years.

What do you dislike?

The ransomware portion of the software is not currently centrally managed through the management console. This unfortunately doesn't allow us to quickly verify that the anti-ransomware software is installed and running correctly on all machines so we have to do it manually.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need protection against malware and ransomware there isn't a better product I've used. Not a single successful attack in over 3 years speaks for itself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Malwarebytes is an essential layer in our multilayered security approach. It's exceptional defense of our computers and servers against malware/ransomware over the past few years has really exceeded our expectations and allows all of the IT staff to sleep better at night.

"Thorough and easy to use"

What do you like best?

It's a wonderful complement to traditional Anti Virus programs. Plus, watching the Remediation Map is always fun. It shows all the things Malwarebytes catches that other programs have missed and keeps a running tally by Anti Virus software provider, which can be quite amusing.

What do you dislike?

Not much. The interface is a little on the boring/staid side, but that is merely an aesthetic complaint, not a program one. The program works nearly seamlessly out of view.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for the paid version. Live protection is always better than remediation after all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a nice complement to our other security programs. Whether it's a lack of attacks or a lack of success from them, we've never had an issue. What better benefit could there be?

"Best Malware out there by far..."

What do you like best?

I've used several different malware programs and this one is by far my favorite. Malwarebytes was the only software that was able to completely remove the HKU/S-1-5-21 trojan from my computer after it had already been scanned by 3 other programs that said my computer was clean.

What do you dislike?

There isn't very much to not dislike. It would be helpful if the scan had an option to completely shut down the computer once a scan has finished, but that might be available on the paid version (I'm not sure).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Malwarebytes is my #1 go to from now on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My computer crashed and had to be reverted back to factory defaults and I was still having problems. Malwarebytes is the only program that found the HKU trojan and completely removed it.

"Feeling of complete security with Malwarebytes"

What do you like best?

How effortlessly it detects malware or viruses and blocks them from invading the computers. We have a lot of important files on these computers, so protecting that information is very important to us.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike. This software is relatively newer to the game and not as widely known as other antivirus softwares that have been around longer. Malwarebytes is extremely reliable for being rather new, and their prices are very affordable compared to other software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is as good as it gets when talking about finding the right anti virus for your computer. Their customer support is there to help you in anyway possible. They offer information on their website through blogs to keep you updated with current news, and offer a 'scams' section, to show you common scams and how to avoid them. All in all this software is definitely worth the buy. The prices cant be compared to others, and are very affordable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Protecting client information is a number one priority. Malwarebytes does that almost effortlessly. They have recently started to offer antivirus for Mac as well. This is helpful to us as we have a Mac computer used for marketing in the office. The added security on our Mac system will help to make sure none of our client information of classified documents end up in the wrong hands.

"Good, but could be better"

What do you like best?

We have a license for the Malwarebytes Enterprise and as far as a it's anti-malware abilities go it's top notch.

We are able to use it to very effectively clean malware off of most infected systems, and even for badly infected systems the chameleon tool (included) works very well.

What do you dislike?

Contact with support is frequently slow, and they have some truly crazy recommended settings that require a fair amount of fiddling on the back end. At one time we were experiencing some slowness and disconnects from the server/console and their recommendation was to sort the 5000 license into groups of no more than 100 with offset scan and update times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MBAM works as far as keeping machines fairly clean, it is best used as an ancillary security system alongside a regular antivirus system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since we started using this I feel like our Malware issues have decreased, and our cleanup times when we do have to do something has decreased. I don't have numbers to back that up.

"Better than much antivirus!"

What do you like best?

Malwarebytes allows you to clean your windows computer of malware, spyware, bots, and other malicious softwares with any complication and really fast.

One of the best things, is that after scan, if there are threats found, Malwarebytes ask for a restart of the computer to finish the cleaning process in boot time.

What do you dislike?

The application is free but tries to put premium packages every time that you update the program and it's a bit disgusting.

If you use the real-time engine, it spends much resources.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a easy application to clean windows computers. It's free and works really good. Also delete the running Malwares by restarting the computer. It's fast locating the issues and easy to delete them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically I clean the computer of our clients with this tool. It's more effective than other antivirus.

"great free malware scan & even more features as a paid service!"

What do you like best?

The scans are accurate and will give you a big picture of what is found with the option to review and quarantine. The breakdown gives detailed information on what was found and where on your computer so you can really analyze the problem.

What do you dislike?

like any scan, it takes a great deal of time and the computer runs slower during the scan. In most cases, it is best to schedule scans when the computer is typically not in use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

compare what is included in the free vs. paid versions. Depending on needs pick the version that will protect your company the best. The free version is still very comprehensive for basic needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a small business having a free option that is reliable and keeps us safe like Malwarebytes does help us keep our computer free of malware and keeps us up and running without interruptions and without impacting our budget.

"Free is Great - Paid is Fantastic"

What do you like best?

I like that I can have a reliable software scan my computer (for free) to check for viruses, any time. Protection is incredibly important.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see the entire software be made free, but I understand that money is money.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's worth it. If you're on the fence and want to try it out, run the free version first. Or, if you just want basic protection, continue running the free version. It'll keep your computer healthy and happy!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping my computer protected is incredibly important. Security risks are no joke, especially in the workplace. I've realized that my computer is running faster resulting in my work being completed sooner.

"Excellent malware removal tool"

What do you like best?

I like to see that there is an update to its database definitions either each day or nearly each day, which shows the company is staying proactive. It is typically very good at removing various malware. Once in a while, you may need to use a separate tool for further cleaning. You can set schedules as to when to do both quick and full scans.

What do you dislike?

The only dislike I have is that there is not a central management interface that all the endpoints report to for our current remote monitoring and management software (RMM). Thus, the only way to tell what is happening on the endpoints is to go look at the logs on each endpoint.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It runs great along other antivirus software that we install on our endpoints.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The only problem is that does not report back to our current RMM software to be able to see everything in a central interface.

"Great Program for Security"

What do you like best?

I have used other antivirus software on our computers, top name brands, but I find Malwarebytes does a better job at removing unwanted threats and potential viruses much better than what I have been using. I still keep Norton loaded, but Malwarebytes works to filter out potential threats, removes them and allows me to quarantine the threats. I like that it shows me details of where the threat comes from and allows me to keep a log of these threats. I find that it picks up things that Norton never does. It keeps our computers running more efficiently by removing spyware and malware. I definitely would recommend using this program as a secondary backup to any antivirus software you may currently have.

What do you dislike?

I have no dislikes for this program. I have found it to be quite efficient at protecting our computers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest trying it out and use it in conjunction with your current antivirus software. I originally started using it as a backup, but have found it catches more threats that our current antivirus software and have been very pleased with it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of our work is done on computers and we are constantly accessing different sites, so the potential for getting a virus is high. I feel with Malwarebytes we had an added layer of protection. This program has enabled us to work more efficiently and without fear of accessing sites that might potentially compromise our information as well as our customer's information.

"My current favorite anti-malware application"

What do you like best?

I've been using this product for over 2 years and have moved many of my customers over to it. The application is fast, light weight and in-intrusive. It's simple to install and just works in the background. I frequently forget that it's there.

Also has very few conflicts with standard desktop applications (office, acrobat, photoshop) ... and works great as part of an anti-malware strategy.

Malwarebytes has been great at keeping the product updated

What do you dislike?

When it does interfere, it's very difficult to track down/ troubleshoot.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare solutions for anti-malware. Businesses (and individuals) should have a plan/strategy for dealing with malware/viruses/ and hacks that includes recovering your systems and data in the event you are hacked.

There are no silver bullets and end-point protection is only part of the equation.

buy in bulk packs to cover all of your systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As part of an anti-malware/anti ransomware strategy this product has a great place on the desktop. neither I nor any of my customers have been the victim of any exploits (far as I know) using this product.

I have used this product to remove exploits where other products have failed.

I have used this product to replace other products (Symantec, Avast, ESET) when they became difficult to manage or interfered with other applications .

"Viruses Beware!"

What do you like best?

I've been studying Computer Information Technology for over 7 years now. And the one anti-malware program that my teachers and professors use and recommend is Malwarebytes. It seems to be the standard software for malware removal. And while I still use it and recommend it, I personally don't think it's the be all end all, but it works.

Overall, it's a simple program. You have the ability to preform a "Quick Scan" which scans the most likely places viruses can hide, a "Custom Scan" which allows you to select what Malwarebytes will scan as well as full hard drives, and a Premium Only "Hyper Scan." Which is the fastest scan for viruses.

The ability to also see the scanning results and pick and choose what files in the scan is to be deleted is also great. Some heavier and more brute force programs delete programs immediately without your say. So this is a great feature to have just in case Malwarebytes picks up some false positives.

What do you dislike?

Subscription based. I hate this. Malwarebytes used to allow a one time fee/lifetime license. Now I guess they've realized their popularity and the subscription based model rolled in. While I do think the price is worth it for the software, I still hate subscription based models.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a must have essential tool in your software library. The first thing most IT guys do is install it and run a quick scan. It's fast and free to download to do a simple scan. Get it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Viruses are not a problem with my business anymore with Malwarebytes. In my 7+ years in the CIT field, I've dealt with some super nasty viruses. And Malwarebytes has always been there to clean up most of them.

"the goto app to find and remove malware"

What do you like best?

One click to run it all. Automatic update. Only retrieves true malware, unlike so many others that provide false positives. Multiple options as to how to deal with the malware that's found.

What do you dislike?

Since I use the free version, I do not have access to some nice features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you suspect anything slowing down your PC or see some nefarious behaviour hijacking your tools, give Malwarebytes a go. It should be used in conjunction with other similar tools, but this was catches most of them w/o wasting your time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Various installation packages and emails have slowed down PC operation. Malwarebytes helps bring me up to optimal performance.

"A must have addition to anti-virus software in the windows world"

What do you like best?

Very good and up to date malware scanner. Most days has a good success rate. In the modern time online, you must have something. Doesn't take up much of a foot print and checks for updates each day. Tech support available - especially for premium subscribers. For the protection, premium is cost efficient.

What do you dislike?

Does have a few false positives - but many things do because malware tries to look like real software. Every so often does not have a response to a new outbreak (maybe less than once a year) that requires greater work if infected (although they often have a patch in short order). User has to open and scan (can't seem to convince some clients that it wont do it for them).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Remember that you need to scan! Consider purchasing premium - especially if you are a business user.

"Great Product for threat detection and removal"

The ease of use of this product is great. Even when the Enterprise version is used with the managed client, deployment was a breeze and the reports and dashboard gave all pertinent info at a glance. It also detects rootkits if you configure it to do such.!

absolutely nothing to dislike about this product. I've used it extensively in an enterprise environment as well as had friends and family use the free version of the product.

"Malware Bytes (Free Edition)"

What do you like best?

I use malware bytes free edition at work in combination with our native Officescan from Trent Micro. Malwarebytes in great in detecting malware and I would highly recommend it

What do you dislike?

As a free version it doesnt have realtime protection and antiransomeware protection so use a paid solution if possible

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look for the paid version if you can afford it. With the current rise of ransomeware and other online threats having a good security solution is worth the cost. Combine this with a solution such as Bitdefender and they will provide you with good protection but as always dont rely on Antivirus only. Please practice good browsing habits and dont click on suspicious links and emails. Use complex passwords for your online and local accounts and use a password manager. If you ever get infected by ransomeware, dont ever pay as these people will come back to infect you again. Use encryption software to protect your personal and business files so they dont compromised.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Even though I know that just keeping an Anivirus is never enough and you have to take measures to protect security and your business data, I am comfortable to say that malware bytes provides a good protection as a free product when used in tandem with another solution.

"Got rid of any virus and stayed up to date"

What do you like best?

I had trojan pop-ups in the corner of my mac desktop that wouldn't go away, incredibly annoying. I had Malwarebytes downloaded at work and it completely cleaned everything out within about 30 minutes or less.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that Malwarebytes seemed to update very often and had a lot of annoying notifications (though this second part was mostly my fault for not changing the settings).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'm not sure how much better Malwarebytes is than any other type of antivirus software, but it did a great job on my Mac. Plus, I use the free version which works well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've never seen a mac get a virus, so this was pretty scary, and could have affected our whole business, but so far, it's kept us safe.

"Saved my butt more than once."

What do you like best?

This program seems to offer great protection. While I am not the one who chose to use it, I am very happy with the results. This program has saved our systems more than once since I have started at the company (a little over a year ago) and I'm not sure where we would be without it. And yes, we do have a tech consulting firm that we use as well as an offsite storage back-up, but Malware kept things from going much worse than they could have gone. I am impressed with the protection it offers. My personal computer in the office got infected through a super sneaky email one day, it was something very aggressive. Malware kept it contained long enough for us to control the outbreak and save the computer as well as all the info we had stored on site. Impressive.

What do you dislike?

I can't say there is much I don't like about this program except that I don't know anything about how to set/use it myself as we have a tech consulting firm that does all of that for us. I know it works, and that is enough for me as long as my tech guys are happy. :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Above all, listen to your tech guys, they know what they are about. But if you find yourself in a position to choose your protection, give Malware a serious consideration. I have used others in the past and have found that Malware gives all the protection it claims to, unlike some others. They also do not blow up your computer trying to get you to upgrade to 'better' or 'premium' services that cost more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Malware protects our systems during all of our day-to-day dealings. We work heavily online and through emails; having an awesome watchdog at my back is important. If our system goes down for even an afternoon due to an infection, we can't continue to do business that day. Keeping our system running smoothly is a massive part of keeping our business running smoothly.

"Excellent Free software for your computer"

What do you like best?

I have used the free version and have found it to be very effective at removing viruses and malware. It does a very thorough scan of your hard drive and also pretty quickly also.

What do you dislike?

Having to use it at all. It means I screwed up somewhere or someone I work with has gone on a website they should have been more careful on. That sometimes you can not access it because it is blocked by the virus or malware. In that case I have found Rkill by bleeping computer to be very helpful. It shuts down the virus and gives you the file names so you can change them and then access Malwarebytes to clean your computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It should be on all computers or networks. The free version is an excellent tool to clean your computer of viruses and malware. You must have good AV software also or you will be using this product everyday.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping my fellow employees from getting in trouble for accessing bad websites and getting them access back to their computer without having to contact IT support.

"El mejor antimalware del mercado."

What do you like best?

- Malwarebytes ya ha superado el bill贸n de infecciones eliminadas.

- Tiene todas las funciones necesarias para prtoteger tus ordenadores de empresa.

-Herramienta de desinfecci贸n completa, no se requieren programas complementarios.

- Dise帽ado haciendo uso de t茅cnicas Antimalware que lo hacen capaz de detectar y eliminar los programas maliciosos m谩s comunes y peligrosos que otros programas son incapaces de detectar ( un ejemplo lo podemos encontrar en Vundo, Zlob, Navipromo, Bagle, RBot).

-La versi贸n gratuita Malwarebytes Antimalware es capaz de eliminar cualquier amenaza que tengamos en el ordenador.

-Alta tasa de detecci贸n de malware.

-Interfaz intuitiva.

-Dise帽o simple.

What do you dislike?

-La versi贸n gratuita Malwarebytes Antimalware carece de protecci贸n en tiempo real, aspecto que se puede llegar a entender.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Les animar铆a a que lo instalasen. En el tiempo en que lo tuvimos en la empresa estuvimos muy contentos, desgraciadamente nuestros superiores se decantaron por otro programa distinto.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sin duda este programa resuelve un aspecto totalmente imprescindible en el 谩mbito empresarial, y este aspecto no es otro que el de proporcionar una protecci贸n total en cualquier ordenador en el que este instalado. Sin duda, en este tiempo las nuevas tecnolog铆as se han convertido en un aspecto inherente al ser humano y con ella numerosos peligros han surgido (virus, troyanos); por ello las empresas debemos aumentar la precauci贸n y dotar a los sistemas informaticos de una protecci贸n total que evite no solo la infecci贸n de los equipos sino el acceso a los datos de los usuarios de nuestra empresa; el acceso a estos 煤ltimos ocasionar铆a a cualquier empresa un perjuicio irreparable. En este sentido, Malwarebytes proporciona una protecci贸n incomparable.

"LOVE Malwarebytes"

What do you like best?

The safety, the amazing tools and ease of use, fantastic reviews by users and editors, gets the job done and all for free. I use this on by business computer as a back up to Norton 360. It has found items in the past that went through Norton without recognizing them

What do you dislike?

I have never found a problem with this software and have been using and recommending it for years. I just installed it on my newest laptop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is absolutely no reason not to add this great free product to your system

"Great Program for cleaning out a computer"

What do you like best?

This is a very easy to use program that allows you to remove malware and other viruses off of your computer. Just one click of a button and it will clean your entire computer.

What do you dislike?

There really is not much to dislike about this program. I hate that there is a better version behind a pay wall, but the free version works perfectly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great program if you are looking for a reliable, free virus scanning software. Ease of use and effectiveness makes this program shine above the rest and usually work better than the bigger named programs out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program would clean off computers that were infected or running slowly. We would use this to allow a computer to function better and remove any unwanted programs.

"Great for small businesses and large alike"

What do you like best?

The simplistic UI in malwarebytes is one of its defining features, the great thing about malware bytes is that it is incredibly easy to use and deal with. Quite a lot of the time with anti virus software products is that they are very hard to navigate and sometimes they try and make it nearly impossible to allow a product that they think is unsafe through. With malware bytes its simple easy and great to use.

What do you dislike?

While using malwarebytes is great sometimes I find the scan speed quite slow and can sometimes slow the system down if its going on in the background. This can be circumvented by letting it run while you do other things or you can simply stop and start it while you are away from your keyboard

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a spare copy installed on a USB stick with a program called RKILL where if you do get hit by a large attack possibly because you've forced something through you thought was safe these two in conjunction will sort it out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits are really just that it keeps my files safe, I used Malwarebytes once when I first learned of it in conjunction with a program called "Rkill" where if you have a virus that stops your antivirus from loading up or any of your programs loading up you can install these two on a usb and solve the issue. They are a great combo to have for anyone.

"Great Anti-Malware software!"

What do you like best?

Malwarebytes conquers to exterminate most of the malware and even rootkits! This software has the option to choose whether to remove suspicious program automatically or manually remove it. This makes everything GUI friendly and can be controlled for personal use.

What do you dislike?

The software take much long time to scan. And sometimes suffer the performance of the computer/laptop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Malwarebytes is small, compact and easy software to use for malware protection. But if you need some more protection, I suggest you BitDefender software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I downloaded a software at the internet and when I installed it, Malwarebytes noticed that the software I installed includes a third party software that changes my browsers homepage and pops ad. This software blocks and removed the 3rd party software immediately.

"You can never be too careful"

What do you like best?

This easy to use product (I use the free version, but am currently testing the premium version) does a scan of my system along with two other anti-virus/malware programs (windows defender and Webroot). They all find at different times different items.

Even with false positives, they have prevented my system from having viruses and malware.

What do you dislike?

I didn't see the value proposition of the premium version (yes, it's online and always monitoring) since I have other systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Today you can't depend on one single product. This definitely should be one of those products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CyberSecurity. So simple, yet so complex.

"A Great Free Anti-Malware tool"

What do you like best?

Malwarebytes is a powerful free program that not only removes malware, but goes an extra step and also blocks websites that seem particularly sketchy or dangerous, additionally, if you have a nasty bug in your system that can terminate processes or programs, Malwarebytes remains relatively immune to those as well, capable of preventing malware from ending the Malwarebytes program.

Did I mention it's free? In addition to the free version, there is a paid version that runs at about $24.95 USD per year, which is a fee that is ultimately up to you to decide if you want to pay the subscription fee, but it is worth noting that there is a paid version, of course.

There is a multitude of other anti-malware products that Malwarebytes offers, such as mobile anti-malware, anti-malware for Mac, anti-exploit for those vulnerable programs in a business, and breach remediation, which essentially covers your business endpoints from potential threats or breaches.

What do you dislike?

As is the case with many anti-malware programs, Malwarebytes tends to be hyper-reactive to items and processes running that aren't actually legitimate threats. These false-positives, while unsurprising, do tend to get annoying and cause some form of suspicion that perhaps something is indeed wrong with your computer, and after a second opinion from a different program, you find that the potential-positive was indeed a false-positive. For example, my Skype client tends to be marked as a malicious process even though after replacing Malwarebytes with a different anti-malware (temporarily), there are no signs of anything malicious after all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is completely up to you if you want to pay for the premium subscription fee, as little changes if you pay the $24.99 yearly subscription. The free version is just as capable as the premium version, no features are intentionally left out, it is all there. I myself paid because I appreciate what Malwarebytes does and I wanted to support their operation, as that is the best justification for paying as far as I can tell.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When it comes to security on a personal and professional level, it is imperative to have a strong program that covers your weak spots and is capable of eliminating threats quickly and preventing future threats as well. Malwarebytes definitely covers that range, and for a free program, it makes it difficult to justify paying for services that provide similar security at a higher premium than Malwarebyte's own premium subscription fee (which is optional, of course).

"Non-obtrusive, protective, basic"

What do you like best?

Basic interface, easy to use, runs in the background without popping up all the time.

What do you dislike?

When we started out, it was with the free version. It reminded us to upgrade every single day, which was annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We went from being a big company to being a small company, and this seems like a good product for a smaller IT situation. More user friendly and more flexible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My IT guy installed Malwarebytes on my system after a transition from a previous company's IT system. Our whole server had many problems, and Malwarebytes found and helped fix them. Since then, it's protected us from threats without getting in the way, and its interface is really easy to use.

"MalwareBytes Endpoint Security"

What do you like best?

Very effective product. Works extremely well in the background. Does not use up very much processor at all.

What do you dislike?

Caused small issue with AV product. If Malware bytes in installed prior to installing an AV product, the AV product may get corrupted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The one issue we had is that we know MalwareBytes plays well with various other anti-virus softwares, such as Eset, but if MalwareBytes is installed when installing AV software, there is a high probability that the AV install process will break. MalwareBytes needs to be installed last.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We started using a multi-layer approach to our security products to better protect our endpoints. Malwarebytes s very effective in keeping malware and related junk off our machines.

- finds many types of malware and cleans them (or quarantines)

- free to use (as long as you don't require the features of the premium version)

What do you dislike?

I am not a fan of the program keep trying to push its premium trial even if you disabled it before.

free version missing a schedule scan

the root kit scan option is disabled by default

Recommendations to others considering the product

must install along side your anti-virus.

if you can't remember scanning manually, opt for the premium version that adds scheduling and real-time protection

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

keeping my company's PCs clean of malware.

"Great programme that works where others have failed. "

What do you like best?

I have used this software on my laptop after it was recommended by a friend when I was having issues with malware. The software worked and actually detected malware that seemingly was missed by Norton anti virus.

It is reassuring to see that the software is working as it pops up with a notification when there is a potential of malware being installed on your computer.

This proves that the software is better than others available on the market,even those which are far more expensive.

What do you dislike?

I noticed that my laptop was somewhat slower on start up during the first use of Malwarebytes. Although the software is good for rectifying an infected PC its real time protection is not as good as anticipated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great programme which is highly recommended by others and used by IT professionals. Does better than higher end more expensive software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was struggling to use my laptop efficiently due to malware causing me problems on a day to day basis. After using this software my laptop was problem free even.

If I was to have this problem again I would use Malwarebytes before any other software of its kind such as Norton.

"Malwarebytes, protecting all machines with ease"

What do you like best?

One of the greatest things about malwarebytes is the fact that it is a very easy to use, deep penetrating antivirus and malware scanner. One of the issues with other anti virus programs is that they cannot go nearly as deep into your system as malwarebytes can, let alone pick up serious cases of destructive software. I've had many cases where malwarebytes can pick up on harmful software that other antiviruses just passed over without notifying me.

What do you dislike?

One of the issues that has come up in this software is that it defaults to only scanning the primary C drive of your operating system. This becomes an issue for people who use many different drives, or have large servers with multiple terabytes spread across different drives. There is also no buttons to change this setting to scan all drives at once.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend malwarebytes when you know your system has been infected. It can be a bit tasking to constantly have it running, so I tend to only use it whenever necessary or overnight.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the solutions malwarebytes is providing for us business wise is a fallback software to use whenever one of our machines has potentially had a virus installed onto it carelessly or intentionally. It is very easy to use for employees and clients alike, and provides us very good service for what we use it for.

"Great!"

What do you like best?

Malwarebytes presents an easy and effective cure to the internet virus, it dispatches viruses better than most of the awful antivirus software you have to pay for, it's very powerful. One of my older laptop became riddled with viruses, I thought all hope was lost, and this along with C Cleaner saved the day when no other could,

What do you dislike?

It's not a case of what I dislike but of what I prefer, I much prefer to use Avast, perhaps because it's presented a little better, what malware bytes lacks is a good UI and design, it's very much an application I only (personally) feel the need to use in very dire situations, otherwise there are plenty of other applications that can do it's job, particularly avast, which is possibly my most used anti virus software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you can see past it's looks it's a great piece of software, infinitely better than AVG and Norton Security, both of which are grossly ineffective and are mire damaging than good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Malwarebytes solves any virus problem quicker than most, it's power is unparalleled. If you virus is absolutely riddled with viruses all you need to do is install this and you can consider those viruses as good as gone,

"Reliable virus scanner"

What do you like best?

I like that I can trust malwarebytes to find the virus every time. When people tell me they have a virus and can't remove it I get them to install malwarebytes and it almost always fixes their problem.

What do you dislike?

If there is one thing I could say I dislike about this software it would be that the interface looks a bit too modern and that it can be hard to find what you're looking for at a glance. I also dislike that the free version of the software does not include an antivirus.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Let it do its job. It's easy to get impatient when you just want to get rid of the virus. But let it scan all the way through, remove them, and reboot. Nine times out of ten it will remove your virus and fix your problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to be confident that I don't have viruses after scanning with malwarebytes.

"mmmmmmBAM"

What do you like best?

For a free program, it is powerful enough to get rid of most malware issues. I can't attest to how it is currently but this company as a freeware company has implemented great improvements over time.

What do you dislike?

I can't really complain as it is freeware but as of recent, for certain functions that were free previously are now only included if you pay

Recommendations to others considering the product

Malwarebytes have become a program worthy of it's "A.K.A" slang MBAM. It'll have you yelling BAM. when it's all done. All jokes aside, This is a powerful program which will become procedural. Back when I was working as a computer technician specifically optimizing and removing unwanted files and programs, this was one of first programs I ran to do so. Since those days, MBAM has become a paid software but it still carries the same weight it does back then. Although this is the case, the plus side is you can run MBAM to see how infected your computer and decide whether to purchase or not. The paid version does have features like live time detection that may be worth your penny.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simple and can be ran while end user works on what they need to. Saving costs by utilizing this program to remove malware is a definite plus. While working as a computer technician specifically optimizing and removing unwanted possible malware, it became a simple and procedural thing to do that was included in the "first things to do" list.

"Keep Your Computer Healthty!"

What do you like best?

Malwarebytes is the best software I have used for the PC to detect malicious files. Its constantly being updated and I am sure to scan at least once per week. It will quarantine anything it does find and you have the option to permanently erase which is great!

What do you dislike?

The biggest thing I dislike about this product was the default notifications that popup on the bottom right of the windows screen. You can disable this within the options menu but is a little difficult to find. It can also block certain websites that you routinely go to by accident. Outside of that its been just fine!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great tool for removing malware. Not the only tool needed. But still an important one.

What do you dislike?

It bugs me do much they have the rootkit scan disabled by default.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is great just remember to enable the rootkit scan. And do not rely only on real time protection. Do a scan from time to time. It is a great tool but also not the only one you need.no program does it all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Removing malware from clients systems.
