    WebArx is a firewall and Malcare is a scanner. They are no the same.
    Basically if your site is infected you would need Malcare to clean it.
    WebArx is a firewall that does not let your non-infected site to be infected (if it is you can clean it with but it will cost extra).

    With both of them I was hacked. They didn't help at all. I suspect the vulnerability was in the webarx plugin. (check the report https://cxsecurity.com/issue/WLB-2018090286 )
    I removed them.

    I personally had a really bad experience with WebARX. There was a plugins vulnerability and it did absolutely nothing to stop it. Other tools such as Securi and Wordfence were on top of things, protecting their users, but WebARX was not. Even their own blog was hacked 12 hours AFTER knowing about the issue.

    Back to MalCare for me 🙂

    My experience was the same as Adams. WebArx is a commercial re-branding of the now defunct https://github.com/PHPIDS/PHPIDS and includes the same bypasses and Denial of Service vulnerabilities and very little new content (IMHO) .

    TL;DR: XSS bypass, SQLi bypass, Code Injection bypass and ships with several denial of service vulnerabilities.
