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

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.

What Antivirus solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

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.
