The benefit of purchasing the consumer Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) Premium license is the advantage of scheduled updating and scanning plus the security of our Real-time Protection Module.

The Real-Time Protection module uses our advanced heuristic scanning technology which monitors your system to keep it safe and secure by blocking unwanted downloads or executable files from running.

Another important feature is our malicious website blocking, meaning that sites known to be malicious will not load on your system thereby avoiding a potential malware infestation.

MBAM Premium also updates its database incrementally, meaning downloading updates will use far less bandwidth over your internet connection and take much less time to complete.

The Premium version will also offers access to some command line functionality not available in the Free version.
