An anti-malware program is important, but while the built-in antivirus vendors are fine, it’s sometimes a good idea to try new programs. Developed by Lithuanian cybersecurity firm Kibernetinio Saugumo Sistemas, SpyWarrior is a new anti-malware program for Windows computers that has a lot to prove as a new player in this space. Does SpyWarrior live up to expectations? Let’s find out.
All-malware protection promises to protect users’ computers from malicious threats, but the reality is sometimes different. So how will SpyWarrior deal with these threats? We did a few tests to confirm.
First, the developers of SpyWarrior claim that the program can detect and deal with threats such as adware, browser hijackers, and unwanted services. Most of the larger antivirus vendors ignore these threats as they do not cause any harm to the computer. But even if they are not serious, they can cause many problems for users. We tested SpyWarrior against various low-level threats and it correctly detected 98% of them.
SpyWarrior has also been tested against major malware such as viruses, Trojans, keyloggers, ransomware and other malware. SpyWarrior’s detection rate for these threats is outstanding, as the program’s real-time detection can detect 99% of incoming malware threats.
SpyWarrior Ransomware Protection Features
One of the most important features of SpyWarrior, and probably the best, is ransomware protection. This feature is especially important as ransomware lurks around every corner of the Internet. But while SpyWarrior’s anti-ransomware features are good in theory, it’s important to test them in practice. So we did. We tested SpyWarrior against 45 different types of ransomware, and the results were impressive. Out of 45 attempts, SpyWarrior was able to detect 45 attempts to encrypt files. All ransomware is protected from damage, which is a huge advantage.
SpyWarrior interface and customer support
SpyWarrior has a pretty standard design and interface. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with that, as the design is modern, and the interface is clear and user-friendly. The program isn’t cluttered, everything’s clearly sectioned, and all features are easily accessible. For users who may have trouble, there are even instructions provided on the program’s official website.
