How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

It's worthwhile doing a case study and testing the solution in your environment and comparing results between different products. We have a lot of virus spyware exploit samples that we keep just for testing purposes, and we use the same consistent standard to test it. In our case, the result was that Malwarebytes came out on top of the others. Malwarebytes isn't yet perfect for a lot of endpoint solutions. From a cloud-based management perspective, there are still issues with endpoint isolations and automated remediations. It requires some fine-tuning even though it comes out on top in terms of performance.

If you're a small company with less than 500 people, the Malwarebytes EDR solution is a good fit. It is also a good solution if: * You don't have any DOD requirements for your data. * You don't have a lot of PPI. * You don't have a lot of confidential documents in your environment. If you have strict DOD regulations or something like that, you might want to look at Carbon Black and Trend Micro. I would rate Malwarebytes an eight out of ten.

We're an official partner in Fiji. We use both on-premises and cloud-based deployment models. I'd recommend the solution to others. That said, I always recommend a POC is done first to see if it will properly fulfill a company's needs. Overall, I would rate the product at an eight out of ten.

We're resellers and customers. We use it in our organization and we also sell it. We sell the solution when we think it is the correct option for our client, and as long as a client doesn't come with a special request. Obviously, we sell what the clients want and what is in their best interest. We're using the latest version of the solution. We're paying a subscription and therefore the updates are automatically added. The product is great. It's straightforward and it does what we need it to do. Overall, I would rate the product at an eight out of ten.

I'm just a user and a customer. I don't have a professional relationship with the solution. I'm using the latest version of the solution. I've lost the real-time scanning, so I use McAfee for that. I use Malwarebytes as a backup, an alternative antivirus. If I think my system's got something wrong with it, I'll scan it on McAfee, and then I'll scan it on Malwarebytes as well. There's a difference. I commonly recommend Malwarebytes to people due to the fact that I find it quite reliable. All things considered, I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. It's not like the big boys - the TrendMicros, Symantecs or CrowdStrikes. It doesn't necessarily compete well in those market areas.

I would recommend Malwarebytes because it's quite secure and able to prevent ransomware. It has a good reputation. I would rate Malwarebytes an eight out of ten.

We're just a customer and end-user. We don't have any special association with the company. Malwarebytes provides the cloud for our organization. I'm not sure of the version number is of the solution we are currently using. For a company with about 100 or more PC units, the solution is quite effective. It makes monitoring easy. There's also a lot of reporting that can be done, and the solution provides protection for a lot of applications including Windows and Zoom. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

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 small to mid-tier organizations and I would say that it works as advertised. I'd give them an eight out of ten. Sophos Intercept X is probably technologically more rigorous and it has some technical advantages for Sophos users in that that it can integrate with the firewalls and have incident response capabilities. However, Malwarebytes is perfectly fine on its own.

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 general. There are a lot of issues I have caught. I wrote these issues down to compile them and then I sent the information to Malwarebyte. Over some time, there was no improvement from the research and development or technical support from this vendor. I have only a few words about this product: It is not good yet. But they have also show almost no interest in improving it. The proxy setting is a very nice feature. But, with that, you can not remove the proxy settings for the clients who are going out of the office for travel. You have to go to each laptop and write a manual cmd (command line) script to remove the proxy settings. It should not be done this way. It is just another example. On a scale from one to ten with one being the worst and ten being the best, I would rate this product as a one-and-a-half. It is one of the worst products which I have ever used. If I have to choose a whole number it does not round up, it will round down to a one.

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 real intelligence is based remotely. I would very highly recommend this product and would rate it an eight out of 10.

This is a good solution.

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.

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