Anti-Malware

Definition - What does Anti-Malware mean?

Anti-malware is any resource that protects computers and systems against malware, including viruses, spyware and other harmful programs.

Techopedia explains Anti-Malware

Anti-malware resources are comprehensive solutions that maintain computer security and protect sensitive data that is transmitted by a network or stored on local devices. Anti-malware tools often include multiple components, including anti-spyware and phishing tools, as well as antivirus solutions for prominent viruses, which are isolated and identified by security resources.

Anti-malware tools may employ scanning, strategies, freeware or licensed tools to detect rootkits, worms, Trojans and other types of potentially damaging software. Each type of malware resource carries its own interface and system requirements, which impact user solutions for a given device or system.
