Malwarebytes enhances enterprise, channel cloud offerings

27 Feb 2020

Malwarebytes has added new enterprise features to its cloud platform, and is adding an MSP partner programme as well as a cloud-based operations console.

The platform, Malwarebytes Nebula, allows simplified administrative controls over endpoint management and enhanced executive reporting with deeper insights into threat activity and remediation.

It’s MSP Premier Partner Program, MP3, and the cloud-based operations console, OneView will enable MSPs to streamline delivery of Malwarebytes’ security solutions to small-to-medium enterprise (SME) customers.

“Organisations today are inundated with challenges in managing their security posture,” says IDC security and trust research vice president Michael Suby. 

“Malwarebytes’ Nebula platform simplifies security with an operational approach that spans adaptive protection, active threat response, and scalable orchestration for endpoints.”

The Nebula platform provides cloud delivery and management across Malwarebytes’ product portfolio including Incidence Response, Endpoint Protection, and Endpoint Detection and Response with capabilities including guided UI, threat reporting, and API integrations 

It also offers administrative control over endpoint security agents to prevent tampering and features executive reporting to help demonstrate the value of security operations activities to the C-suite.

“We see more businesses shifting their security needs to MSPs in order to better address the rapidly evolving threat landscape,” says Malwarebytes chief product officer Akshay Bhargava. 

“Our enhanced Malwarebytes Nebula platform and MSP offerings mean that our partners can better protect their customers. Enhanced operational controls and reporting ensure these businesses have a strong posture against threats and can recover with minimal downtime in the event of a breach.”

Previously in limited release, the MP3 offers a tiered and scalable approach to suit specific customer and MSP licensing needs. 

The OneView console enables easy onboarding of new customers, management of license and billing, global policy setting to rapidly respond to emerging endpoint security threats, and role-based access control. 

Additional features include in-console support and customer reporting with insights into the value that the MSP is delivering through endpoint protection activities including detected threats and remediation activity. 

MP3 also includes Malwarebytes’ Ransomware Rollback feature, which enables MSPs to return to a known good state following a ransomware attacks.

Malwarebytes Malware Removal Service (MRS) and Premium Services, previously in controlled availability, are also now available to all enterprises. 

MRS provides intervention and triage to manage and isolate a critical malware incident while Premium Services offer dedicated security resources to each customer.
