Is Malwarebytes Ransomware Beta worth having on system?

 

Computer:

  • Surface Pro 3
  • Windows 10

 

 

***I understand this is a MS Windows 10 support program. I am new to W10 & am looking to find opinions on the cohesiveness of the programs.

Moved from W10 Support to AV/AM Software - Hamluis.

Hi:

 

Is Malwarebytes Ransomware Beta worth having on system?

 

 

I'm pretty sure you mean Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware BETA (MBARW-BETA)? :lol:

 

It is a robust product currently in BETA testing.

As recommended by the product developers HERE, it should not be installed in a production environment.

Eventually, the technology will be incorporated into Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM).

 

More information:

Hope this helps,

MM

The best defensive strategy to protect yourself from malware and ransomware (crypto malware) infections is a comprehensive approach and to use supplemental security tools with anti-exploitation features capable of stopping (preventing) infection before it can cause any damage and routinely backup your data.
