We changed our name from IT Central Station: Here's why

Malwarebytes Primary Use Case

IT Support Specialist at a construction company with 11-50 employees

It is for endpoint detection and protection. We primarily use it to protect our Windows machines. We've got endpoints that are out in the field. We're a construction company, so we've got mobile endpoints using Windows out in the field and in our two offices.

It is 100% on the cloud. In terms of the provider, we use Malwarebytes themselves.

We just needed something that was intuitive and easy to use. It had a good record for catching viruses in the wild and things like that.

We have the cloud endpoint solution, so it is cloud Malwarebytes or the cloud EPP.

Cyber Security Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees

My job position is Cybersecurity Engineer. We use the solution as an EDR or endpoint detection response. As EDR is, it is not the primary endpoint protection as it can not control the risk. This product is working as behavior monitoring for the end users. These monitoring products are not controlling the endpoint. For controlling the endpoint, you can use EPP (Endpoint Protection) products like Symantec Endpoint Protection, Trend Micro Endpoint Protection, one that was called OfficeScan — now the updated one is called Apex One — or other strong endpoint protection solutions like Sophos Intercept X and so on. But Malwarebytes is just EDR. EDR is mainly for detecting usage behaviors. It is evaluation and it is not technically protection for the user environment.

Cyber Security Team Lead (Endpoint) at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees

Malwarebytes is more of an Endpoint Protection Platform inside a NextGen AV solution. We use it to do, it does real-time protections, but our primary use for that product is compliance scanning. So traditional threat monitoring plus daily scans, full scan, system scans, etc. And it covers the signature and heuristics gap for us.

The solution is primarily used as a security feature that's very low-maintenance. We just put it in and leave it, and it actually defends us in a proper way.

One of the reasons we use the solution is to protect the endpoints. Plus we are also using the EDR facility to protect servers and for emergency response. As for Malwarebytes, they will be able to help us track how the malware activities happened, which can help us in the restoration process. We haven't come across anything where we had to use these services or use the tool to recover anything. We haven't come to that yet.

Founder at a tech services company with 1-10 employees

One of our clients right now is using Malwarebytes for their endpoint security, and they were part of a security assessment we ran. This organization was hit by ransomware and therefore getting a solution specifically that addressed ransomware was of primary importance.

It is a malware protection solution. We put it on every machine to protect the machine from malware.

It is a cloud product. In terms of the version, we have whatever they're offering or using. They don't do versions anymore because it is a cloud product.

The primary use case of the solution is something I'm using myself, on my own computer. It sits in the background, works very well and does what you expect it to do. I'm using the free version at the moment but I'm considering getting the premium version because it's a pretty good product. My working environment is Windows, but my own personal preference is Mac, a Mac OS which I own. I have the solution on 24/7.

Technical Manager at a tech services company with 11-50 employees

I am using it to prevent ransomware and malware. I am also using EDR, which means if the data is attacked, I'll be able to recover my data, that is, roll back the data and go to the pre-attack state.
