Overall Satisfaction with Malwarebytes

We use Malwarebytes across the entire organization as part of our security solution for our internal networks at three sites and for remote users machines that connect to our network. This is a necessary part of our plan to remain PCI compliant as well as a great option for best practice prevention of any kind of malware, ransomware, etc.
  • It's very good at detecting and removing possibly unwanted programs, like iffy extensions, etc.
  • It's great at blocking questionable sites from being accessed by users.
  • It's quite good at keeping clients up to date.
  • The admin client push install is a great tool, but I've had to take a couple of tries occasionally to install a client. Not often, but it happens.
  • The push install tool could be a little more flexible in terms of how you'd like to install and when.
  • The client dashboard has a lot of information but I'd like to be able to customize it more than I can now.
  • It's part of what keeps us compliant, which we need to operate.
  • There's definitely peace of mind with it running.
  • There is a noticeable resource hit on older machines, but with moderately recent mid-range Optiplex's, for example, it runs great.
We've looked at other products but the ease of use, reviews and tests, and at this point, our own experience has led to us remaining with Malwarebytes instead of others. Cost is also a factor, Malwarebytes is reasonable comparatively when you look at what you get vs. what others give for a similar price.
Malwarebytes is a great solution for deploying anti-malware, anti-exploit clients to large numbers of machines and monitoring them all from a central location. It's not really needed for very small organizations probably, though it certainly could not hurt. For medium to large business, however, it's perfect. If you need anti-exploit it's an excellent solution, but if you're running it on very old machines there's some overhead there.
