Malwarebytes Overview

What is Malwarebytes?

Malwarebytes is a network security software that enables businesses to identify and detect potential cyberthreats across networks or enterprise servers. The cloud-based Malwarebytes Nebula platform lets administrators gain visibility into threat patterns, analyze response outcomes, and view endpoint statuses from the centralized dashboard.

Using Malwarebytes' flight recorder functionality, enterprises can track files or network connections to monitor suspicious activities across Microsoft Windows desktops. It lets users restore encrypted, modified, and deleted files in case of a ransomware attack, initiate threat remediation scans based on organizational requirements, and utilize machine learning and behavioral analysis capabilities to detect potential issues across devices. IT managers can schedule scans to detect malware and utilize the forensic timelier to gather and organize incident details in chronological order.

Businesses can integrate Malwarebytes' breach remediation tool with various third-party endpoint or security information and event management (SIEM) platforms. The software also lets IT professionals secure staff member devices against hackers, spammers, malware, and viruses among other cyberthreats.

Best Real-time and Asynchronous Malware and Adware Protection Product for Computers

I've used Malwarebytes for years to protect my professional laptop from malware and adware. It is the easiest and most effective solution for you for both real-time and asynchronous protection against malware and adware. I highly recommend it to anyone.

2018 ADAME Ransomware attack

In 2018 the company was hit by a ransomware attack. I researched many solutions to prevent future attacks and found Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection best fit our needs. The Management Console allows me to see all user scan schedules, update logs, and blocked logs. Frequent updates keep the platform a strong cybersecurity defense tool.

Malwarebytes didn't protect our systems as we had expected

Malwarebytes didn't operate as advertised, so I ended up uninstalling the software after 7 months.

Best Real-time and Asynchronous Malware and Adware Protection Product for Computers

I've used Malwarebytes for years to protect my professional laptop from malware and adware. It is the easiest and most effective solution for you for both real-time and asynchronous protection against malware and adware. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Pros

I've used Malwarebytes for protection against malware and adware on my professional laptop. It is very easy to use. Moreover, it scans your pc for malware and adware faster than other programs and always finds the files that cause trouble. Also, it gives you the option to put the files in quarantine. In addition, it has a real-time protection mode against threats. This mode is enabled by default and it warns you when you are going to connect with a website that contains malware/adware. The application integrates well with other programs.

Cons

In email Protection against phishing emails and links. It would be useful to this feature to warn users when they are going to click a phishing link on an email message that looks real (official logos, etc.).

2018 ADAME Ransomware attack

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 3/12/2020
Review Source: Capterra

In 2018 the company was hit by a ransomware attack. I researched many solutions to prevent future attacks and found Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection best fit our needs. The Management Console allows me to see all user scan schedules, update logs, and blocked logs. Frequent updates keep the platform a strong cybersecurity defense tool.

Pros

The Management Console was easy to install and configure. The individual local user install is simple. Solid Customer Service focused on customer experience, not Sales.

Cons

In the management console I can see what was blocked on each user machine, but it does not offer much information in the console on why it was blocked. It does give me enough information to go investigate externally on the web, but I wish it gave more direction at the console.

Response from Malwarebytes

Thank you for your feedback Mike, we're glad Malwarebytes was able to provide you a great cybersecurity solution. Additionally, I'll pass along your experience using the console as our team is always looking for ways to do better.

Used Daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed on 4/1/2020
Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

Malwarebytes didn't operate as advertised, so I ended up uninstalling the software after 7 months.

Pros

Malwarebytes was inexpensive for us to purchase and try out for 6 months. Installation and configuration was simple and straightforward.

Cons

The mail client extension didn't scan incoming emails as it was advertised to. It also slowed down the mail client startup to the point where I ended up disabling it completely.

great results, this finds issues that my other 2 products that I also run don't find

Pros

runs all the time, watching your PC, your files, your programs, your web activity - protects you from malicious sites and ads - stuff you don't even know is happening (or the bad things that are trying to heappen) when you open a web page. A good price. You can run this in addition to other anti-virus products; it does not slow your system down

Cons

some of the reporting is very IT specific, so if you use this be sure to have an IT person that watches the logs and that can help you when it tells you there is a problem that it found.

Pros

MalwareBytes works as advertised. It stops and cleans up malware that slows down and compromises your computer. The customer service reps are very helpful and generally respond to emails within 1 day. I have used their free product, professional product and Corporate product. For many years the MalwareBytes products were my go to when I needed to clean computers.

Cons

My worst experience with MalwareBytes was when I was looking at their Enterprise software. I contacted Sales to get a quote. After I got the quote, my approval process got bogged down. The sales person sent a reminder email that was quite condescending and really aggravated me. As a result I did not purchase the enterprise product.
