n the past, Malwarebytes
started out focused on consumer-based malware, but now the San Jose, Calif.-based company says it's offering an enterprise product for desktop-based anti-malware detection and eradication protection.
Although the antivirus market is a crowded one, the startup has gotten attention from consumers because "we have one of the best malware removal engines," says Marcin Kleczynski , co-founder and CEO of Malwarebytes, which he launched in 2008 with private funding. Malwarebytes Enterprise Edition, the new product out today, adds management capability intended to appeal to businesses that need a management console and reporting for desktop antivirus protection. Despite being a relative newcomer, Malwarebytes is carving out its own space with what it says is an anti-malware product that can handle zero-day malware incidents with more speed than many other antivirus products.
