USB thumb drives today are synonymous to having a junk drawer full of writing pens,you have a large sum of pens collecting in the drawer yet they all serve some form of purpose,be it the ink runneth dry or ink full to capacity. The same can be said about USB thumb drives,you so many USB drives lying around the house yet they all serve a purpose even though they have different storage capacities,some being filled to cacpacity. But can these USB stick fight against Trojans,Malware and viruses,well this is where Malwarebytes comes in. We all know Malwarebytes for their award winning software that fights against malware and other forms of nasty bugs. It is a very effective piece of software that comes highly recommended from many tech pundits alike. Now they have just released an industrial strength USB thumb drive dubbed the Malwarebytes Techbench,where its sole purpose is not to act as a lone storage drive but its main mission is to snuff out spyware, Trojans, worms, and other forms of malware.
You simply plug Techbench into any infected computer and right away it will automatically detect and remove any spyware, Trojans, worms. This doesn't require any type of software installation, Malwarebytes states that the process is pretty rapid and runs in silent mode with any type of major operation, which is also automated.
Another great thing about Techbench is while scanning your computer for infections it updates itself in the process,if malware is attempting to block applications from running, it uses Chameleon technology to hide from malware that may cause obstruction to your system while scanning.
Other positive aspects of using Techbench is that you have 15GB of storage left on the thumb drive which leaves users the ability to carry around your own applications and tools, this negates the need for another USB thumb drive.
Malwarebytes Techbench is a pretty useful tool that has its minor,wait I mean major drawback and that's the price. If you want the Techbench in your possession you going to have to cough up $400 a year with special introductory offer that's $100 less then the normal selling price. Would you spend $400 a to use the Techbench USB stick that fights off Trojans, worms and malware? Leave your comments in the box below.
