Malwarebytes Anti-ransomware or Zone Alarm Anti-Ransomware?


Recommended Posts

I just signed up for a free month of Zone Alarm anti-ransomware to try it by curiosity. I did not realize that in my Malwarebytes premium version there is also an anti-ransomware feature. I saw that by coincidence when i checked the settings of my Malwarebytes premium that there was an anti-ransomware feature. I turned the  MBAM anti-ransomware feature of while using the Zone Alarm anti-ransomware to avoid conflict between these programs. I have been lucky and have so far not been attacked by any ransomware so i have not had any chance to test which antiransomware is the most effective.

Before the free trial month is over,i have to decide if i should continue to use Zone Alarm anti-ransomware which costs 2$ every month,or if i should stay with Malwarebytes anti-ransomware which is included in my lifetime license version. Which anti-ransomware is the most effective? Please give feedback. Is it worth paying 2$ every month for the Zone Alarm anti-ransomware,or is the Malwarebytes anti-ransomware just as good?


Iam not quite sure if this is the right section to post, but please move it to the right section otherwise.

I would stick with Malwarebytes Premium 3 and it's Anti-Ransomware module. Reason being that you don't want to disable any of the module as Malwarebytes is the most efficient when all of them are enabled and working together. Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware module is meant to play along its other modules, while ZoneAlarm Anti-Ransomware isn't (maybe it's meant to play alongside other ZoneAlarm products). 

Plus, you already have a lifetime licence for Malwarebytes which gives you the Anti-Ransomware protection, why pay more per month when you already have it? ;)

I decided to uninstall Zone Alarm anti-ransomware and instead use the Malwarebytes anti-ransomware. So far i have not been attacked by ransomware. I was hoping to hear some feedback how effective Malwarebytes anti-ransomware are from someone who has been attacked and how well it defeated/stood up against the ransomware.
