Malwarebytes Launches Next Generation of Malware Protection for the Enterprise

September 17, 2012

San Jose, CA.  — Malwarebytes, the leader in advanced threat protection and remediation, today announced Malwarebytes Enterprise Edition (MEE.)    Targeted specifically for business, government and educational customers, MEE provides a centrally deployed, administered and monitored layer of threat protection and malware remediation that can be seamlessly added to existing security infrastructures.  Engineered to work in concert with an antivirus solution, MEE’s unique zero-day and polymorphic protection platform delivers a new generation of real-time security for today’s corporations.

MEE leverages the experience gained from the extremely popular Malwarebytes Anti-Malware product which has been used by over 150 million people worldwide to block or remove over five billion pieces of malware.  MEE is aimed at protecting companies of all sizes from the threat posed by cutting-edge malware such as zero-day, polymorphic and blended malware threats which can evade traditional enterprise antivirus solutions.

“Modern malware is able to bypass many of the antivirus technologies currently deployed in today’s enterprise, posing a serious risk to corporate data. Built from the ground up, we developed a new approach to secure, control and remediate endpoints that has already been broadly adopted in the consumer marketplace,” said Malwarebytes CEO Marcin Kleczynski. “MEE’s heuristic and behavior-based analysis engine adds a powerful second layer of defense to today’s corporate systems that more effectively safeguards sensitive corporate assets from the organized crime rings behind much of today’s malware.”

“Targeted malware goes to great lengths to evade antivirus products.  Because these attacks are unique and unrecognized by antivirus products, they can penetrate the network and successfully compromise endpoints,” said Jon Oltsik, Enterprise Strategy Group industry analyst.  “Malwarebytes Enterprise Edition doesn’t depend on typical definitions and uses heuristics to stop these intelligently-architected attacks before they can execute on endpoints, providing an extra layer of defense today’s corporations can well use.”

Due to its broad compatibility with all major antivirus programs, MEE provides a seamless approach to business security that provides the additional real-time protection needed against today’s new and emerging web-based threats.  Designed as a centralized protection management system, MEE defends both physical and virtualized environments in an easy to use and resource efficient anti-malware application.

MEE’s advanced threat protection is provided through an automated detection engine which uses a combination of predictive heuristics, behavioral and signature analysis.  This approach can identify and block entire families of malware and even predict future mutations. MEE also incorporates highly effective threat and malware remediation technologies that can remove all registry traces of malware.

Fueled by a global intelligence network, the Malwarebytes community and malware research expertise, MEE’s database updates take place in the background and do not require network endpoints to be rebooted, saving valuable time for the IT team.  In addition, instead of performing the random scans that can negatively affect bandwidth, MEE’s scheduled and unscheduled network inspections are precise and efficient.

Centrally deployed and administered, MEE allows a system administrator to oversee and manage Malwarebytes software throughout the company’s network.  Systems administrators use a single console to manage endpoints on an individual or company-wide basis.  Policies can be applied and enforced in a flexible manner, allowing for everything from single user to user groups to enterprise-wide rules.

At the core of MEE is the Malwarebytes Adaptive Research (AR) platform which incorporates over 250 advanced technologies and components to uniquely identify new malware families and effectively predict emerging threat attributes. Proven on tens of millions of systems, integrated engine technologies such as Chameleon, Advanced Predictive Behavioral Detections, Attack Pattern Heuristics, Malicious Website Blocking and Rapid Rogue Identification all unite to provide a powerful and unique protection layer.

MEE is immediately available and pricing for 100 seat licenses begins at $1315.  A range of corporate support packages are also available. Special pricing is also available for government, education, and non-profit entities. Malwarebytes MEE is compatible with Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 and additionally supports XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating system clients.  For more information, visit http://malwarebytes.org/business/enterprise
