Techbench automatically quarantines all malicious software on the USB stick to prevent reinfection. The software also uses Malwarebytes Chameleon, a product designed to neutralize modern malware automatic countermeasures.
The product was directly conceived by Malwarebytes’ founder and CEO Marcin Kleczynski, himself a former computer technician. Marcin’s many hours fixing infected computers at his local PC repair shop, even though they already had AV software installed, was what initially inspired him to set up Malwarebytes.
Commenting on the launch, Kleczynski said: “Techbench is made by technicians, for technicians. As an IT support worker, there is nothing more frustrating than dealing with an endless line of computers infected with stubborn malware, each needing a different type of fix.
“Techbench will address this problem by providing something which can simply be plugged in and automatically remove the problem. Hopefully, it will make the lives of computer technicians that little bit better.”
