Malwarebytes overhauls flagship product with new UI, faster engine and lighter footprint

Advanced endpoint protection and remediation solution Malwarebytes, has announced the launch of the latest edition of their flagship premium consumer product, Malwarebytes 4.0. Substantially smarter, faster and lighter, the product comes with improvements enabling faster scans and detections to help catch more malware than ever before. A dramatic overhaul of the user experience makes it more intuitive and informative.   
 
On Windows, Malwarebytes 4.0 introduces Katana, the company’s smartest detection engine yet. Its zero-hour technology examines the behavior of new, often polymorphic, threats, and blocks them before traditional antivirus (AV) even recognise they exist.

 

Malwarebytes 4.0 goes beyond traditional AV solutions by applying multiple layers of protection and detection, including proactive ransomware technology, malicious website protection and anti-exploit capabilities. These features combine to deliver the holistic defense across multiple attack vectors necessary to protect users in today’s evolving threatscape and are backed by Malwarebytes’ powerful linking technology, renowned for its ability to remove all traces of malware from an infected machine.
 
“Polymorphic threats have changed the game in cybersecurity. By the time traditional antivirus creates a signature for these threats it can be too late. Cybersecurity providers need to stay ahead of the game by recognising potential threats before they can cause damage,” said Akshay Bhargava, Chief Product Officer at Malwarebytes. “Malwarebytes 4.0 is designed to block these evolving threats in record time using innovative detection technology. Our new intuitive user interface helps customers more easily engage with their cybersecurity. Furthermore, the new engine is optimised and requires 50 percent less of the CPU while scanning.”
 
Key features of Malwarebytes for Windows 4.0 include:

 

  • Improved zero-hour detection – pinpoints new threats as they arise and before they can wreak havoc on a user’s device
  • Expanded malware detection – blocks even more malware for improved protection
  • Signatureless behavioral detection – identifies the latest variants of dangerous malware families that use signature evasion through runtime packing, obfuscation and encryption, offering instant protection against new threats that traditional AV has a hard time detecting
  • Faster threat definition process – streamlines the publishing of new definitions, reducing the time it takes to protect Malwarebytes users from new threats
  • Completely redesigned user interface that is intuitive, more informative and simple
  • Threat statistics – allows users to see what Malwarebytes is doing for them in real-time and get a first-hand view of what threats are coming at them (and being blocked)
  • Cybersecurity news – dynamic feed keeps users informed of the latest threats and other security topics
  • Easier updates – more automation means that users receive the latest protection with less effort on their part
