Traditional antivirus fails because it’s slow to react to new threats. Malwarebytes uses layers of technology like anomaly detection (a cool sort of artificial intelligence), behavior matching, and application hardening to crush malware that hasn’t even been seen before.
Kaspersky vs Malwarebytes in our news:

2022. Malwarebytes lands a $100M cash injection weeks after laying off 125 employees



Cybersecurity giant Malwarebytes has announced it has received a $100 million cash injection after laying off 125 employees. Malwarebytes CEO Marcin Kleczynski says that he has refocused the company on where we win; providing effective, easy to use cybersecurity solutions to those who are underserved by the competitors. The investment will enable Malwarebytes to further grow its team, innovate its products, and expand its MSP partner and international channel programs to best serve our existing and future customers.


2017. Kaspersky Lab released free antivirus



Kaspersky Lab has launched a free version of its antivirus software in the U.S. with plans for a global rollout over the next four months. Like similar alternatives Kaspersky Free provides the core essentials, including email and desktop antivirus protection, the ability to quarantine infected files, as well as automated updates. The free version lacks some of the premium features users can purchase for $50 annually per device, including virtual private network (VPN), parental controls and extra protection for online financial transactions. Kaspersky claims that its free software option is light on ads, though users may be paying for the uncluttered interface by providing user data to Kaspersky.
