They seem to be mostly similar products but I'm just wondering if anyone has done a side-by-side comparison of the two. I have AE installed on all of my online computers and am wondering if HP might be a good replacement or addition to them.

Heimdal Pro has a lot more features than Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, as MBAE specializes in exploit mitigation.

If you intend to install Heimdal Pro then I recommend that you uninstall MBAE first, as using two anti-exploit applications at the same time will weaken your security instead of strengthening them due to how they work.

Heimdal Pro

Protects you from cyber-criminal actions by employing an advanced web scanning engine to keep you safe from notorious data and financial stealing malware, such as Zeus Gameover (P2P) and CryptoLocker...Antivirus looks for files and actions, whereas Heimdal looks at traffic.

Security For Everyone – Reviewing Heimdal Pro

Heimdal Pro: is the commercial version for home users or small offices. In addition to automatically patching your vulnerable applications, it also:

* analyzes the behaviour of the software installed on your computer in order to detect malware that is stealing data and financial information. If such programs are detected, Heimdal Pro blocks the communication between your computer and the hacker controlled servers.
* scans your HTTP traffic in order to protect you against zero hour exploits and malicious websites

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (MBAE) is an action level security application that runs in the background as a standard Windows Service and protects against, the malicious action of exploiting software vulnerabilities, blocks zero-day exploits that target browser and application vulnerabilities, blocks exploit kits and defends against drive-by download attacks.

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit provides three layers of exploit protection (against Operating System security bypasses, memory caller protection, application behavior protection). MBAE continuously monitors popular applications, preventing vulnerabilities in software and browsers from being exploited, blocks unknown and known exploit kits, proactively preventing the exploit from installing its payload before it can do damage. This means that it will protect against code execution that uses a certain vulnerability in an application. MBAE leaves a small footprint...meaning it is not intrusive, does not utilize a lot of system resources and does not use a signature database so there is no need for constant updating.
