Malwarebytes, the leading advanced malware prevention, and remediation solution, announced the extension of its visionary endpoint protection to support Mac operating systems. Businesses with Mac computers can benefit from Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection powered by the Malwarebytes Cloud Platform.
Based on Malwarebytes telemetry, malware targeting Mac operating systems more than doubled from 2016 to 2017. In the year 2017 alone, Mac threats increased more than 270 percent. New threats identified in the first two months of 2018 indicate a similar pace of malware development.
Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection†Features for Mac
Single Dashboard†– A single dashboard unites Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection for Windows and Mac computers for easy use by the system administrator
- Protection without Connection†– Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection does not require a constant connection to the cloud platform, meaning users are still protected when they are not connected
- Compliance†– Enterprise compliance programs may safely incorporate Macs with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection on board as a†validated, PCI DSS replacement for traditional antivirus (AV) solutions
“The landscape today is far from the homogeneous computing environment of a decade ago,” said Marcin Kleczynski, CEO, Malwarebytes. “Businesses are increasingly operating with a mix of Windows and Mac machines. Now, organizations can ensure the sanctity and security of their operations, with a solution that protects the business environment that exists today – with multiple operating systems at work under multiple roofs.”
Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection for Windows
Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection, built on the Malwarebytes cloud platform, is an endpoint security solution featuring layers of detection technologies with a unified endpoint agent.†The new Anomaly Detection Machine Learning engine has been integrated into Malwarebytes’ layered approach to security. Malwarebytes’ Anomaly Detection Machine Learning layer, provides real-time, signature-less detection against new and unknown threats by modeling known trusted files rather than attempting to model historical malware samples.
Customer Acclaim for Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection
“The impact has been unbelievable; I can easily say that of all of our budgeted security projects for last year, Malwarebytes had the most impact. It has been hugely beneficial to our security strategy,” said Kevin Merolla, Global IT Security Engineer, Chart Industries. “Malwarebytes has vaporized ransomware, and runs silently unless it detects a serious threat that we need to investigate.”
“We ran Kaspersky Security Center 10 on our systems, but it was not catching malware,” said†Martin Mash, Systems Administrator for HornerXpress. “Malwarebytes stops things before they actually come in, notifies us, and cleans it up. I can log in from anywhere, automate tasks, or make manual changes. Now my time is dedicated to working on other things, and I know that our users are protected.”
“We tested Malwarebytes against Kaspersky and Trend Micro; Malwarebytes found significant amounts of malware that the other two solutions missed and delivers more powerful, real-time protection,” said Mr. Kardi Sugianto, Head of ICT, Inter Aneka.
