Introducing the Malwarebytes Admin app: Endpoint security at your fingertips

If you’re on the beach sipping piña coladas, the last thing you probably want to do is rush to your desktop and address a critical security issue.

And yet, this is the reality for many IT security professionals today. Regardless of the time or current location, security pros are expected to drop everything at a moment’s notice and swoop in to save the day.

But being tethered to a desktop workstation can blur the boundaries between work and personal life. This inflexibility not only leads to additional stress and pressure on IT professionals, but also can delay response times as they scramble back to their workstation to put out fires. Even just taking a break is hard without the fear of leaving the system unattended.

Enter the Malwarebytes Admin app.

Designed as a companion to the Nebula console, the mobile app now allows administrators to manage alerts and perform essential tasks right from their iOS devices. No more being tied to a computer–you can now handle incidents and execute administrative functions wherever you are.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy an interrupted piña colada as we will delve into the key features of the Malwarebytes Admin App.
