AntiMalware Technology

What is Malware?

Malware, short for malicious software, is mostly created by criminals to steal personal information from computers or by hackers who are searching for fame by taking down a computer or disrupting a computer's operating system. While most of the perpetrators are usually looking for financial gain, a handful just want the praise generated by gaining access to sensitive information or to take down a large entity, such as banks and/or governmental agencies.

Malware is a malicious set of programming code embedded in a download or an email, executed after opening a newly acquired file, to fulfill its role of intrusive behavior. Malware includes Viruses, Ransomware, Malicious BHOs, Rogue Security Software often embedded in Toolbars, Worms, Trojans, Rootkits, Keyloggers, Dialers, Spyware and Adware. Malware, although not usually connected to viruses, does include some form of virus that morphs itself by changing identity when discovered.

Shared Protection

Pandora Real Time Analysis Technology

With this technology, STOPzilla Antimalware uploads any suspicious file to our cloud-based File Reputation Database. The file is then Sandboxed, analyzed and if found malicious it is then quarantined. The malicious software's signature will then be added to our target database to protect other STOPzilla users from the same threat, which helps mitigate Zero-Day infection threats.

What Sets STOPzilla AntiMalware Apart From the Rest?

Star technology

The Original AntiMalware Technology

STOPzilla AntiMalware is powered by one of the first AntiMalware/AntiSpyware engines on the market, providing you with superior protection. STOPzilla AntiMalware uses a common cloud-based infrastructure from which it feeds its data and definitions.

Cloud technology

Cloud Technology

As soon as an infection is first released and affects a machine with STOPzilla installed, its information is uploaded into our cloud databases and therefore if your computer is attacked by the same infection, it should stop it before even it even enters your system. This type of fast response significantly decreases the infection rate of a given virus and is a good objective for second generation antimalware programs.

Anti rootkit

State of the Art Anti-Rootkit Technology

A Rootkit is a malicious type of software designed to hide itself from normal methods of detection and grant administrator access and control of your computer to a 3rd party attacker. STOPzilla is optimized to prevent this type of attack.


The Missing Link in Protection

STOPzilla AntiMalware fills in the gaps of protection left by AntiVirus software against malicious threats like Spyware, Adware, and Ransomware.
