We’re very excited to announce the release of Malwarebytes 4.0 for Windows!
This release provides a major evolution of our detection technology, as we announce our new Malwarebytes Katana Engine. The Katana engine combines innovative new detection technologies with our best existing detection engines to bring you even greater security.
In addition to the malware detection improvements, we’ve redesigned the user interface with a cleaner and simpler design:
Improved zero-hour detection – pinpoints new threats as they arise and before they can wreak havoc on your device
Expanded malware detection – blocks even more malware for improved protection
Signature-less behavioral detection – identifies the latest variants of dangerous malware families that attempt to evade traditional signatures 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 you from new threats
Revamped user interface – Completely redesigned user interface that is intuitive, more informative and simple to use
Threat statistics – allows you to see what Malwarebytes is doing for you in real-time and get a first-hand view of what threats are coming at you (and being blocked)
Cybersecurity news – dynamic feed keeps you informed of the latest threats and other security topics
Easier updates – more automation means you receive the latest protection with less effort
