Metadefender Cloud Client: Free Malware Analysis Tool for Windows
Over the past few years, the use of malware, Trojan, worm, etc. have ennobled by the attackers dramatically. When some attackers are taking the help of ransomware, when some people are using malware through various software, websites, email attachments etc. However, when it comes to analysing the malware, Metadefender Cloud Client comes first to your mind (at least I hope so). Metadefender Cloud Client can protect your computer as well as entire home network from malicious software, file etc. let’s have a look at this free tool for Windows.
Features of Metadefender Cloud Client
Before getting into features of Metadefender Cloud Client, let’s have a look at the user interface. This free software comes with a decent UI that doesn’t have any complexity at all. The best part of this tool is you can find every info in a different tab. For example, if you want to check only suspicious files, you can head over to Suspicious Files tab. If you want to check IP connection related problems or detections, you can head over to that corresponding tab.
Talking about eh features, you can scan your entire operating system along with your home network or all the PC those are connected to a particular network. Regarding features, this tool seems to be very handy because it scans the virtual machines as well. Most of the anti-malware tools do not scan virtual disks and machines. However, Metadefender Cloud Client does the job pretty well.
It not only scans your system for malicious files but also you can analyze the file minutely. It comes with more than a dozen scan engines including AVG, ByteHero, AegisLab, Microsoft, McAfee and more. Each file will be scanned through all those scan engines. If any of the scan engines shows any problem, a ‘malicious’ mark will be put on the file.
Apparently, the IP connections cannot be scanned through those scan engines. For them, there are different other sources. For your information, you can find the info about the threat. For example, if there is Trojan, work, malware or anything included in that detected file. Another useful feature of Metadefender Cloud Client is you can export the whole scan report to a single file. Generally, anti-malware tools do not do such thing. However, as this is a malware analysis tool, you can do so without any problem.
The drawback of this software is you cannot use it as virus removal tool since this is an analysis tool. It doesn’t take much time, but you must have to use any other anti-malware tool to remove your malware. If you are using Windows 10, you might take help of Windows Defender since that is quite useful after all.
There is a Summary tab included in Metadefender Cloud Client that shows almost everything that is happening or happened inside the tool. You can find complete processes, infected files, clean files, MAC address, IP address, computer username and much more info.
To get started with Metadefender Cloud Client, at first, download it to your machine. It doesn’t work on Windows 7 and the later version without any issue. Talking about the installation, there is no need to do since this is a portable software.
After opening it on your machine, start the scan. After a few moments, you can find the result on your screen.
That’s it! In a nutshell, this tool seems to be quite useful for them, who not only scan the system but also want to get a full analysis report.
