What Is MalwareBytes?
MalwareBytes 3.0 is the latest version of the popular Malware fighting tool. It now incorporates Anti-Malware, Anti-Ransomware, Anti-Exploit and provides real-time protection from malicious websites. The new 3.0 version is designed to REPLACE your existing antivirus and offers more benefits than traditional antivirus can offer. For those who feel safer keeping their original antivirus and adding MalwareBytes as an additional layer of protection: no problem! It can run complimentary to your existing solution.
Free Versus Paid
What’s the difference in the free version, versus the paid version? The biggest difference is on the free version, it is run on-demand, or as you feel there are issues. The paid version runs all the time, protecting your system BEFORE anything bad happens. There is a 14 day free trial available on the free version, where all features will work. If the 14 days passes, you must buy the license or it will revert back to non-realtime. All subscriptions are based on a per-year licensing model. There are discounts for purchasing multiple licenses for your business, etc. Visit the [sales page] and choose your license term, then select your quantity for real-time pricing.
