We switched to Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection after using several other antivirus systems, including McAfee, ESET, and Trend Micro. It's being used across the entire organization. We rely on it to keep our machines safe from malware, spyware, and ransomware attacks. So far, it's been pretty reliable and has a very light footprint, so it doesn't use up many resources. We've been using it for two years so far, and no complaints.
  • Light footprint
  • Affordable
  • Can be used in conjunction with Windows Defender or other third-party antivirus solutions
  • End user functionality is limited--can only launch scans. Would be nice to offer more features for the end user.
  • Some updates must be done or at least approved manually, instead of automatic updating.
  • It catches some false positives, so they need to tone down the aggressiveness somewhat.
Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection has offerings for end users all the way to large corporations, so pretty much anyone can benefit from their great technology. The end user software is very customizable and configurable, while the endpoint agents meant for corporations are more locked down and have limited functionality (for the end users). However, admins have full control and visibility into the agents, and agents can even be remotely installed and uninstalled, and installed via Active Directory GPO--a nice feature!

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection is being used to protect all desktop and laptop PCs in our organization, as well as multiple physical and virtual Windows servers.

Malwarebytes addresses the issues of malware and ransomware by doing an excellent job of protecting all systems within our network as well as users' portable laptops. In a world where ransomware is becoming a daily issue for mid to large-sized companies, this is an insurance policy that every company needs to have.
  • Protects against malware - No matter how much training you give end users on social hacking, there is always a breach at some point.
  • Protects against ransomware - Ransomware could spell disaster for a company...it could literally shut the doors for good.
  • Centralized administration - Without a terrific centralized method to manage all the systems being protected, it would require an extra position just to maintain all endpoints.
  • The main con for me is trying to find a con to complain about. I simply cannot think of anything negative I have to say about MalwareBytes in the experience I have had with them to date.
I would absolutely recommend Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection to a colleague and I have recommended it to many of my peers in the IT world. Malwarebytes is well suited for any environment that requires protection from mal/ransomware which is most companies these days. In particular for companies that host their own big data that the operation of the company relies on.

The only place Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection may not be AS appropriate would be one where there is near zero reliance on computers, networks and data.

BC Systems is using Malwarebytes Endpoint as our primary platform to protect our network against virus, trojan's, and any other invasive threat in real time. We implemented this software two years ago and have not had any intrusions since. The Malwarebytes GUI offers a report which shows all of the access attempts that were blocked by the software. You can customize the report to an individual user or your entire network. You can see the benefit of your purchase every time you inspect the report.
  • The GUI is intuitive and easy to navigate.
  • It is easy to install and see your protection immediately.
  • The price is comparable to competitors.
  • I have not found any since using this software.
Simply install the software and let it run. It will actively inspect every packet entering your network. If the access attempt is unauthorized it will be blocked and logged for review. Review the report often and you can find where your network is weakest. Then you can focus your efforts on where it is needed most.

Initially we had a lot of malware slipping through the cracks of our initial antivirus solution. After trialing Malwarebytes, we were satisfied with the results and proceeded to make the purchase. We found that Malwarebytes detects and eradicates threats that are missed by traditional antivirus solution.
  • Simple Licensing scheme
  • Ease of setup
  • Ease of management
  • Reporting
  • Threat remediation
Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection proved to be near ideal for a secondary solution. Running it in conjunction with a traditional antivirus solution provides the best endpoint protection in my experience. Also, even though the reports are a bit lacking in detail, they still make a good starting point when investigating incidents.

While we use Webroot Enpoint Protection on our MSP clients, we augment that protection with Malwarebytes. If Webroot allows any malware through, Malwarebytes catches most everything else. We routinely run sweeps/scans with Malwarebytes as our final authority on the cleanliness of our machines.
  • Scan can be customized on many levels.
  • Convient scheduling interface.
  • GUI is very intuitive an easy to use.
  • Updates from one version to another can be challenging. Regular updates are a must.
  • We have not had any issues, but Malwarebytes has gotten some poor reviews on their support in industry publications.
For environments where users have significant interaction with web-based applications and resources, it is ideal to reinforce your AV solution with Malwarebytes. For largely internal resources, it is not as impactful, but still provides added insurance against infection.

We have been using Malwarebytes for 4 years across our whole organization. Nowadays, ransomware, spyware, and malware are a big threat. Being in an engineering consulting business, our users are bombarded with so many emails every day, sometimes with phishing links. It became so important for us to protect ourselves from these types of attacks, so we decided to buy Malwarebytes. Since then, it is doing an excellent job.
  • The biggest plus with this software is that you can manage all the clients from a management console. You can push the install/updates through it. If the client cannot connect to the management console, then it will update directly from their website. This means you are always up to date and protected.
  • The software on the client machine has very low overhead so it doesn't affect the performance.
  • You can create policies based on the types of users or by the department. You can customize these policies so it will let you micro-manage the clients.
  • When you push install to clients, sometimes it will fail with generic errors, and it's hard to find out what is the cause of failure. Fortunately, it doesn't require too many changes on the client-side but it takes time to figure it out.
  • When we bought it, we had an option to buy it with email support or phone support. The phone support was very high priced, so we ended up buying email support. when we experience any issues, it takes a long time to get a resolution. Fortunately, we haven't used their support much.
  • It had a few incidents with false calls. We are using software that generates reports in MS Word format. The software will call Word to open with a report, but the anti-exploit will consider this as a threat and will block the function. You can put Word in an exception but it won't protect Word from a real exploit in the future.
This software is doing an excellent job. The management console and low overhead on the end-user computer is a big plus. You can buy the licenses in packs. The software is a bit pricey, so if you are on a tight budget then you need to look for a different solution.
As I mentioned, we have only email support. Their phone support was very expensive. If we ever have any issues, we have to email them and wait for their response. In most cases, I have figured out the issue on my own. The software is very stable so we haven't used their support much.

It was used on a trial basis for a few months on about 20-30 machines (combination of end user and server devices). It filled gaps left by our main AV solution, in particular it was able to detect a number of malware strains that our existing AV had not detected. It also has very intelligent anti-ransomware capabilities, and the feature that can show the highly detailed report of what a particular process has done (what it's spawned, files modified, URLs accessed etc) when it's ran on a machine is highly useful in identifying malicious software from false alarms. The remote remediation has also proven to be highly effective
  • Anti-ransomware; the rollback feature, and the ability to stop ransomware in it's tracks would be highly valuable in the event of a ransomware infection reaching a machine. It can block a machine from communicating on the network, prevent the infection from modifying any more files, and allows for a full machine rollback to prior to the infection if required.
  • The management console gives you a lot of information on the target machine, including general asset details, as well as infection details. It also has very effective remote management and remediation tools.
  • The remote deployment tool could do with a little work; occasionally there would be errors deploying it to a remote asset, and the errors were not especially clear on what the issue was. The deployment tool also requires the install files to be downloaded onto the machine you are running the tool from, rather than being able to pull from a server location. The installer is also just an executable that you launch each time you want to install.
  • Firewall capability isn't really present in the product as it stands, which is why it's running in tandem with our current solution.
It's well suited to most environments, however, it has some compatibility issues if you need to deploy it to older operating systems that are out of support (which is understandable of course). If you work in an environment where you have older OS's in the business, the client may not be able to be installed remotely, or at all (depending on the OS). However, if the product supports the OS's you run, it's a very good product to invest in for peace of mind. I was also able to run it on the servers with no impact on their performance
Whenever I've had a query for the support team, they have got back to me very quickly, and given me very well detailed advice on fixing whatever the issue I had was. They also pointed me to help documents and such where I could find more information if I needed.

We utilize Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection in our organization site-wide. All servers & workstations are deployed with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection on all levels. I love this product so much because it is dependable, and everything from stage 1 of deployment to finalizing policies is super easy and done from the web portal. No need to install a local server management console any more with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection! Why do I trust Malwarebytes? Because we have not been infected or breached while using it.
  • The initial setup with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection is speedy and straightforward since you do not have to dedicate a server for the management side of it - it is cloud-based!
  • Reporting of malicious items is a breeze from the management web portal. I can quickly review items from my cell phone as I walk through the office, from home or wherever I am and need to check on these items. Other systems require you to VPN to your office, open software, log in, and start reviewing. But being cloud-based makes this so much simpler!
  • I would like to see Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection create the ability to setup other admins of the system with restrictive access to only review items, but not be able to deploy machines or change the policies.
  • There is an area in the admin center when you are reviewing deployed machines. You are unable to sort or search by Computer Name/Host Name. This would help to quickly locate specific devices since we do not try to memorize IP addresses used by workstations.
I will always recommend Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection because it has not failed my company. We have detected more infections as a result of using other security software and scanned to compare findings with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection. It is scary when Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection finds things that your existing software did not see and are real vulnerabilities. The minimal amount of resources it uses to protect your environment actively is fantastic! We eliminated an entire server by switching to Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection from competitors' solutions, as they all require a dedicated server to install the admin management software on. With Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection Cloud, everything is in the cloud, and you do not need a server for this!
The staff at Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection is superb! They know their system and software! Each time we have reached individuals that know the system and could knowledgeably answer questions that were far from basic, these were advanced questions. The staff is very polite and willing to seek help from superiors to make exceptions to the normal answers. All of our interactions with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection staff have been great!

We use Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection and Response across 26 companies. It has performed above expectations for endpoint security and protecting against malware, ransomware and exploits.
  • The cloud console is easy to navigate and allows for easy management and reporting on the endpoints. It allows us to grey list suspicious files and activity until we can vet these items can be moved to a whitelist.
  • The layers of protection Malwarebytes offers allows for different method to keep our endpoints clean from Malware, exploits and ransomware. The ransomware rollback feature is a great way to mitigate these type of threats.
  • Deployment is easy and effective to allow for a smooth deployment to new endpoints.
  • We have not experienced any areas that we would deem room for improvement. Malwarebytes is always working on making the product better and have a solid road map for the future threats we will face.
Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection and Response is capable of working in all sizes of businesses. It lends itself useful to administrators with little to no knowledge to the very astute.
We have used their support several times and it is always fast, professional and their staff is eager to help.

We utilize Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection (Premise-based) for the whole organization. Its anti-malware, anti-exploit, and anti-ransomware provide protection for all our Windows-based equipment, workstations, and servers. We need a product that provides both protection and centralized management and offers more protection than an anti-virus product with extra, less focused features like Symantec Endpoint Protection.
  • Great protection for end points.
  • Automatic definition updates without the need to contact the management server.
  • Anti-exploit program self updates without the need to contact the management server.
  • Supports group policy deployment.
  • Supports email alerts.
  • Works alongside anti-virus programs without issues.
  • Usable on Windows servers and Windows workstations.
  • Limited Apple support (remediation only).
  • Premise based management tool no longer the focus of development in favor of new cloud based protection.
  • Can't migrate to cloud based protection easily and requires different licensing.
  • They released a definition package last year that caused all systems that received it to block all network access, inbound and outbound. The repair process was manual and took 15 minutes per machine to fix. The only way to learn about it was from their website and it was not easy to determine that Malwarebytes was the cause.
  • Management tool does not auto-update client programs. You need to either perform a push update or update your GPO program deployment for the new package.
  • Email alerts about clients only come in after the workstation has sent an update to the management server. The management server is not accessible over the internet, so reports from remote users can take days after the incident.
  • The anti-exploit module does not like any JAVA programs. Barracuda JAVA VPN and Supermicro SuperDoctor get blocked. There is no exception list, so you have to disable protection.
  • You can not make exclusions for programs you need protection to be disabled for.
  • Some programs can be disabled by end users.
  • No notification process to inform you of new updates for end user applications or the management system.
Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection is good for companies that do not have a very small mobile workforce. It is also acceptable for companies where their mobile workforce is constantly connected to a corporate VPN. It does require weekly manual monitoring to make sure all endpoints and all applications including the management service are up to date.
