Announcing Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection, a next-generation antivirus replacement for businesses

By Marcin Kleczynski

Six months ago, we announced Malwarebytes 3.0, a next-generation antivirus replacement for home users. Today, I am happy to announce Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection, its equivalent for businesses.

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection includes an easy to deploy, scalable cloud platform that allows you to rapidly install, configure, and manage our solutions on any Windows endpoint. Businesses get Web Protection, Application Hardening, Exploit Mitigation, Application Behavior, Payload Analysis, and Behavioral Monitoring technologies all delivered through a single agent in the cloud! In addition, I’m pleased to introduce our first ever signature-less Anomaly Detection Engine powered by machine learning. This now adds a seventh layer to our protection stack, making your defense-in-depth strategy even stronger.

We’ve added Asset Management so you can see what software your endpoints have installed, what updates they have or need, and generally, monitor the health of your environment.

Key features of our new platform:

  • Cloud based: no need to provision a server, just create an account and go!
  • Scalable:enterprise-grade security for small offices or large enterprises
  • Single agent all of our protection technologies delivered through a unified agent
