How Malwarebytes Protects Against Ransomware

Ransomware is a type of malware, and because of the danger which it presents, it receives a lot of attention. It often arrives on your endpoint because of unpatched or little-known vulnerabilities which are exploited by attackers. Some applications are so attack-prone that users elect not to use them. If the vulnerability is in the operating system, users have few choices available to them. Patches and updates are released to counter the vulnerabilities, but there is no guarantee that eliminating old vulnerabilities will not create new ones. Malwarebytes uses a multi-layer approach to protect your endpoints against the threat of ransomware.


The average user may be a target for any or all of these threats at any given time. It does not matter which websites they frequent, or which emails they open. Threats exist, so protection is warranted.
