Choosing MBAE over Sandboxie, why and should I?


Recommended Posts

To me it looks like there is a lot of overlap in the goals of both of these softwares, which is to ultimately keep the system safe of malware. As they are both incompatible, is MBAE clearly the superior choice in avoiding drive-by downloads, exploits leading to infections, etc..?


My top concerns are remaining uninfected while web browsing, and staying safe even if I open a malicious PDF or Word file.

I think MBAE achieves the same goal as Sandboxie but it is much easier and comfortable to use. When it comes to protection they both are excellent choices.There is compatibility to consider as well. Office 365 is not compatible with Sandboxie (the Office version that runs through click-to-run).


If all your programs are compatible with either Sandboxie or MBAE, it's a tough choice I think. Sandboxie may be a bit more robust but MBAE can stop attacks at an earlier stage whereas Sandboxie is more about containing them.
