    So we have these two seemingly promising products.

    Both are young in their development -- thus there is probably not much use in discussing which one 'is better.'

    NVT EXE is popular in this forum. Many have downloaded it.

    MBAE has the backing of Malwarebytes -- a perennial favorite in these forums.

    Both seem to be evolving and developing quickly.

    I pasted info from the respective product websites below.

    Can some of the smart guys explain the differences in the products, the differences in the approach, and also the similarities?

    That would be helpful to those of us looking to add this type of protection.


    Thanks,

    Yes exactly. :)

    MBAE is probably more advanced when it comes to stopping zero day exploits.

    But with ERP you can control what apps are allowed to run on your PC.
