What is most valuable?

The interface is not so bad. The dashboard actually is good. It is simple. But it is not able to produce simulated attacks.

What needs improvement?

I know of more than ten critical cases with clients which affect their use of the product adversely. We work with the Malwarebytes company a lot and have discussed the existing problems with the manager of Research and Development. He would not just say "You are right." But even though he knows that… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are currently looking for a new solution because I am not satisfied with the product or the effort of the vendor to meet the needs of users. I have gone through the trouble of making a table for competition analysis between various vendors to see how they compare and that includes several vendors… more»

What other advice do I have?

I have a lot of baggage with this product because of problems I have with the customers, the implementation, the configuration, the settings — it is very, very troublesome. There are various players on the course now. Some solutions may perform better. I have had a bad experience with Malwarebyte in… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution has a good management interface. The fact that we are able to successfully deploy it on all the endpoints and the client has not had any recurrence of a ransomware event has been very good. It means that it's doing what it's… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The solution was successfully deployed and so far has been able to stop all ransomware attacks, which has been extremely beneficial to the organization. The IT manager is also able to manage the solution easily. Our observation is that the… more»

What needs improvement?

Overall, I haven't found any ways the solution lacks in features or usability.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In terms of licensing, the solution is certainly comparable to other choices. I would say they're comparable to Sophos or Symantec among others. They'd be very close to each other price-wise. I don't think they're cheaper; I believe they're… more»

What other advice do I have?

We've never resold Malwarebytes. We've just worked with customers that had already begun using it. This is one of the best solutions for ransomware. It deploys as one would expect, and it manages as one would hope. It's perfectly fine for… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the scan feature. Being able to carry out a full scan on your system is a great feature, it gives you a certain level of confidence that everything's okay.

What needs improvement?

If the company was going to do something, it would be great if they could open up the free version to an app blocker that would block malicious applications. I don't think they would do that because they need to make money but it's what I would suggest they do. There's no indication on the system as… more»

What other advice do I have?

The product is a client on my system at the moment. I think it gets a lot of its information, its virus signatures, things like that, from a cloud service. I can see that it takes a second to download new virus signatures and things. It's obviously getting its information from their website, so the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I didn't specifically evaluate other options but I did go through a decision analysis process to figure out the best option for me. I listed what I wanted from the software and then rated all the alternatives against my requirements. It was a checklist and the solutions that didn't pass got kicked… more»

What is most valuable?

We haven't had any problems with threats. The product is good at keeping threats out.

How has it helped my organization?

We don't have to spend any time remediating bad things happening: Not viruses nor ransomware. We are not spending time fixing anything, so worker productivity is enhanced.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see it protect itself a little better from other people's updates. Every once in a while, the product gets clobbered. It's not just one thing. So, it could… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Yearly, it is around $50 per client.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I did not use a previous solution. I have been using this solution for quite awhile.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I am also using Kaspersky for endpoint antivirus protection.

What is most valuable?

It comprehensively finds and removes malicious software.

How has it helped my organization?

It prevents us from having to re-image computers if they are found to be harboring malware. We have also seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to detect and respond to threats, by a few hours. Finally, it has helped with staff productivity by about five percent.

What needs improvement?

There is room for improvement in the way it is deployed, in terms of being able to distribute it. Right now we have to get our hands on a machine to deploy it. It would be nice if there was an easier system.

What other advice do I have?

Trial it and see if it works in your enterprise and, if so, then acquire it. Having said that, I don't think it has had much impact on our security maturity. I would rate Malwarebytes at seven out of ten because it is effective but not always easy to deploy.

What is most valuable?

* The power of the engine * The technical rate * The detection rate is great. * Staff can use it at different levels within the company.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows us to have better knowledge of the way people use the tool and how we can improve their workflows.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see integration with other vendors going forward. Contacting other teams for sending information to partner organizations could be improved.

What other advice do I have?

Try it. You will love it because it does what it advertises.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We had the biggest vendors on our shortlist. We chose this vendor because of the support and it clean user interface.

What is most valuable?

You can manage this solution remotely from the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

We have seen a decrease of approximately ninety percent in the number of events.

What needs improvement?

If everything were on the cloud then it would be nice. The company and the enterprise are in the cloud now, so we can manage security through there, and then try to put another layer of security in place. The product update capability needs… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We expect to pay $1,000 USD a month, depending on the number of users.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this solution we considered solutions from Microsoft.

What do you think of Malwarebytes?

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for Endpoint Security on sixty-seven workstations.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution helps us by providing central management of anti-malware and anti-exploit functionality. The addition of anti-ransomware was buggy when first deployed but now works well.

What is most valuable?

The anti-exploit is very good at intercepting Office application exploits.

What needs improvement?

This solution reports far too many false positives!

For how long have I used the solution?

Four years.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
