Comprehensively finds and removes malicious software, but not always easy to deploy

What is our primary use case?

We use it for instant response.

Pros and Cons

  • "It comprehensively finds and removes malicious software."
  • "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.
