As a company spokesperson noted, the Malicious File Hunter software was designed with business owners in mind, not consumers. The malware forensics software works by searching for malicious and suspicious files on an entire Windows network, based on keyword query.

Unfortunately, despite the fact that businesses have AV, Firewall, Proxy and ACLs on their company computers, malware always seems to find a way to get through and wreak havoc. From smaller family-owned companies to large corporations, no one seems to be safe from the ongoing threat of malware. As a list of Top 10 reasons to purchase the new software notes, searching for malware on network is super fast and users will know right away if a Trojan is present on any of their computer systems.

As a Windows malware finder, Malicious File Hunter has many special features that help to make it unique and set it apart from similar types of software. For example, it allows users to scan tens, hundreds or even thousands of computers on their network for a known malicious file match.

"You can also find new and unknown malware by searching for usual malicious files used in email attacks," the company spokesperson noted, adding that partial filenames and wildcards takes it one step further and users can also schedule search tasks and only take a look if something warrants their attention.

In addition, the Malicious File Hunter software allows people to locate one file or dozens all at once, in just one search. This is especially helpful for companies that have numerous suspect files hitting their computers. Also, as opposed to traditional tools that can be complicated and require users to deploy agents, open firewall rules and more, the new software is agentless and can be used almost immediately. Users can install it on just one of their computers, and then start using it right away to check their entire entire network.

Rather than requiring someone in the company to run the same malware searches over and over, the Malicious File Hunter can be scheduled to work at all times—even in the middle of the night and on weekends.

"You can create one or multiple scheduler tasks, similar to Windows Scheduler to search for specific files on once, daily, weekly or monthly," the company spokesperson said.

"The results are saved to path of your choice to CSV file for further analysis."

Anybody who would like to learn more about Malicious File Hunter is welcome to visit the new website, there, they can read about the software and its many impressive features. The site also includes a helpful FAQ section that answers common questions about the software.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
