Malwarebytes 3.0 Beta 2

Malwarebytes 3.0

Malwarebytes is a high performance anti-malware application that thoroughly removes even the most advanced malware and spyware.

Malwarebytes version 3.0 brings comprehensive protection against today’s threat landscape so that you can finally replace your traditional antivirus.

Malwarebytes 3.0 has been built from the ground up and now offers combined Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit, Anti-Ransomware, Website Protection, and Remediation technologies all into a single product (Malwarebytes). And it scans your computer 3-4 times faster!

You can finally replace your traditional antivirus, thanks to a innovative and layered approach to prevent malware infections using a healthy combination of proactive and signature-less technologies. While signatures are still effective against threats like potentially unwanted programs, the majority of malware detection events already come from signature-less technologies like Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware; that trend will only continue to grow. For many of you, this is something you already know, since over 50% of the users already run Malwarebytes as their sole security software, without any third-party antivirus.

With the combination of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware technologies, Malwarebytes 3.0 will be available for $39.99 per computer per year, 20% less than previous products combined and 33% less than an average traditional antivirus. As always, malware remediation will remain absolutely free.
