Product Portfolio

The Malwarebytes Product Portfolio consists of:

  • Anti-Malware – Proactively blocks zero-hour malware using industry-leading detection and remediation. Malwarebytes technology protects against threats before other products have even identified them. If endpoint detection fails, their remediation technology will remove any infections.
  • Anti-Exploit – Protects vulnerable programs against zero-day attacks with innovative exploit mitigation technology. Four layers work together to block exploits instantly.

This multi-layer defence model breaks the attack chain by combining advanced malware detection and remediation, malicious website blocking, ransomware blocking, and exploit protection in a single platform.

Malwarebytes Endpoint Security Now Protects Businesses Against Current and Future Ransomware Threats.

Malwarebytes Endpoint Security with advanced anti-ransomware technology is the first solution to offer multiple layers of protection against unknown ransomware.

Malwarebytes have announced new anti-ransomware capabilities for the Malwarebytes Endpoint Security platform. Malwarebytes’ new advanced anti-ransomware technology is the first dedicated protection layer purpose-built to block unknown ransomware.

Users of the Endpoint Security platform have access to signature-less behavioural monitoring technology that automatically detects and blocks both known and unknown ransomware, greatly reducing vulnerability to ransomware attacks. Using a dedicated real-time detection and blocking engine, proprietary ransomware behavioural technology and signature-less protection against unknown (zero-hour) ransomware, the advanced anti-ransomware technology was engineered from scratch to stop ransomware in its tracks, before files are ever encrypted.

“Traditional security offerings rely on obsolete techniques or a collection of repurposed technologies that were not originally built to combat ransomware,” said Nathan Scott, Senior Security Researcher, Malwarebytes. “Malwarebytes Endpoint Security helps stop ransomware; even types of ransomware that have yet to be discovered. We built these new capabilities from the ground-up because we know that ransomware is one of the most dangerous cyber threats. Before now, businesses had no purpose-built ransomware protection available to them.”
