Leaving a computer unprotected against malware is like leaving the front door to your house wide open in a dangerous neighborhood. Arming your computer with basic malware protection is more like locking that door and maybe using a home alarm system. Malware protection from major cybersecurity companies, on the other hand, is like placing your home inside a bank vault. That’s exactly the kind of protection IObit delivers in its latest release of its famous Malware Fighter software.

Already a leading name in consumer-level online protection IObit has beefed up several protections in an already robust software package with Malware Fighter 8

Smarter and faster

Understanding that anti-malware software is really only as good as the last bug to hit the internet, IObit has super-charged its malware database by increasing it in size by 100% and making it faster and smarter as well. 

It can now scan your entire PC 50% faster than before. Plus, by using advanced heuristics (basically faster, computerized decision-making processes), the new software release can spot even more threats than before including such as viruses like BackDoor.Lokibot; Ransom.Robbin; Malware.Coronavirus and Ransom.WannaRen.

“IObit Malware Fighter 8 further optimizes threat detection and removal processes for a better user experience,” said Bing Wang, Product Director at IObit. “In the face of the growing number of cyberattacks and identity theft hacks – like the popular coronavirus-themed threats at present – IObit Malware Fighter 8 gives users more comprehensive protection to better deal with various PC security issues.”

Vault-like protection

Our earlier analogy of good anti-malware software acting like a bank vault around your data is particularly true of IObit Malware Fighter 8, thanks to the combination of something the company calls Sensitive Data Protect with its Safe Box feature. This creates even stronger, multi-layer privacy protection to the files you most want to keep safe. As a result, there’s virtually no chance of a hacker getting a hold of your files and holding them ransom for cash. 

Plus, the new release has also beefed up its web-based email protection features so that your inbox stays safe and clean from spam, phishing scams, and other email threats. 

All of this is on top of the software’s already impressive ability to keep your web-based activities away from prying eyes and potentially catastrophic invasions of your privacy by protecting you against spyware, adware, ransomware, Trojans, keyloggers, bots, worms, hijackers, viruses and more.
