ThreatDown powered by Malwarebytes: A 15 Year Journey

November marks a significant shift in our legacy. After 15 years as Malwarebytes, we are proud to introduce our rebranded identity, ThreatDown powered by Malwarebytes.

Building off Malwarebytes’ initial recognition for removing every trace of viruses that others missed, ThreatDown powered by Malwarebytes combines award-winning technologies that cover all stages of an attack, with managed services for teams with limited resources.

To say it’s been quite a journey to this point would be an understatement. From our beginnings as a remediation consumer tool to becoming a titan in business cyber protection, let’s walk through where we’ve come and where we’re headed.

Anti-Malware Small Business Edition (2008 – 2012)

Malwarebytes for Business began its journey in the late 2000s, offering corporate licensing for its consumer anti-malware product. By 2012, our focus intensified as we launched the Anti-Malware Small Business Edition, introducing advanced features to meet the specific demands of businesses.

Malwarebytes Enterprise Edition (September 2012 – 2016)

The introduction of Malwarebytes Enterprise Edition (MEE) in late 2012 solidified our position in the enterprise market. Tailored for businesses, governments, and educational institutions, MEE provided comprehensive threat protection and malware remediation. As the demand for our expertise grew, esteemed institutions such as The University of Alabama and NextGen Healthcare became part of our clientele.

Malwarebytes Endpoint Security (June 2014 – 2016)

2014 saw the birth of the Anti-Malware Remediation Tool, a streamlined malware solution for businesses. Shortly after, Malwarebytes Endpoint Security was launched, merging multiple essential tools into one comprehensive package.

Nebula (2017 – 2018)

Transitioning into cloud security management, 2017 introduced Nebula 1.0, our cloud-based console. This platform brought together our machine learning-backed Malwarebytes Incident Response and Endpoint Protection products.

OneView (2019)

2019 heralded the debut of OneView, a multi-tenant console tailored for Managed Service Providers (MSPs). With OneView, MSPs could efficiently manage multiple clients’ security needs from a unified platform.

Comprehensive Endpoint Detection and Response Offerings (2020 – 2021)

Throughout 2020 and 2021, we fortified our EDR capabilities, including extensions to support Windows servers. With features such as Flight Recorder Search, Threat Hunting Alerts, and Brute Force Protection, we further strengthened our protective measures against cyber threats.

Managed Detection and Response (2022)

Last year, we delved into a multitude of new services and tools, including Device Control, Vulnerability Assessment, Patch Management Modules, and many more. Our crowning achievement was the introduction of Malwarebytes Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service, providing 24×7 monitoring and investigations for resource constrained IT teams.

Securing The Against the Next Generation of Threats (2023 and beyond)

2023 marked our foray into Mobile Protection for iOS, Android, and Chromebook platforms, helping organizations crush mobile threats on iOS, Android, and ChromeOS. The introduction of an Application Blocking Module gave administrators even greater control over app installations on devices.

Further, with the release of Malwarebytes Security Advisor, we transformed the Nebula customer experience to enable organizations to visualize and improve their security posture in just a few minutes. We also released Malwarebytes Managed Threat Hunting (MTH), a 24/7 service that proactively identifies and then alerts EDR customers to potential threats before an active attack begins.

Into The Future With ThreatDown powered by Malwarebytes

Originating from Malwarebytes’ 15-year legacy in combating daily malware threats, ThreatDown powered by Malwarebytes has evolved in tandem with the ever-changing threat landscape.

ThreatDown’s mission for businesses is straightforward: neutralize threats promptly and efficiently, without the need for extensive IT teams, prolonged setup times, or substantial budgets. We combine the technologies and services that resource constrained IT teams need into four streamlined, cost-effective bundles that take down threats, take down complexity and take down costs:

  • ThreatDown Core Bundle: Basic malware protection and threat surface reduction. A simple yet superior solution integrating award-winning endpoint protection technologies.
  • ThreatDown Advanced Bundle: Everything included in core plus Automated Threat Hunting and Ransomware Rollback. Tailored for smaller security teams with limited resources.
  • ThreatDown Elite Bundle: Everything in Advanced plus 24/7 expert monitoring and response by Malwarebytes MDR analysts. Purpose-built for organizations with small (to non-existent) security teams that lack the resources to address all security alerts.
  • ThreatDown Ultimate Bundle: Everything in Elite plus protection from categories of malicious websites. Perfect for teams looking for a SOC-in-a-box, a one-and-done shortcut to cybersecurity done right.

In short, with ThreatDown, the mission is clear: To take down threats to businesses and reduce attack surfaces immediately, without the need for an IT army or big budgets. Together, we can overpower threats—and empower IT.
