Malwarebytes launches cloud platform designed for SMBs

Malwarebytes launches Malwarebytes Nebula, a new cloud platform with specific enterprise features but designed for small to medium businesses.

In addition, the company has launched its MSP Premier Partner Program (MP3) and OneView, MP3s cloud-based operations console.

According to a statement, this combined offering delivers simplified dashboards, deployment, reporting and operational control to enable MSPs to streamline the delivery of high-value security solutions to SMB customers.

The Nebula platform provides cloud delivery and management across the Malwarebytes product portfolio. This includes incident response, endpoint protection, and endpoint detection and response.

The platform includes native capabilities such as guided UI, threat reporting and API integrations. As such, it enables security teams to diminish gaps in team experience and bandwidth, Malwarebytes says.

It offers administrative control for endpoint security agents. This helps to prevent tampering and provides executive reporting to enable teams to demonstrate the value of security operations activities to the C-suite.

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

“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,” Bhargava says.

Prior to this announcement, MP3 was offered in a limited release, offering a tiered approach to suit specific customer and licensing needs.

The OneView console provides the ability to onboard new customers, manage licenses and billing, and offers global policy settings.

Additional features includes in-console support and customer reporting with insights into the value that endpoint protection, detected threats and remediation activity activities are resulting in.

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

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

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

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

MRS includes rapid expert intervention and triage to effectively manage and isolate a critical malware incident while Premium Services offer dedicated security resources to suit the needs of customers.

Malwarebytes is a cybersecurity company focused on preventing cyberthreats such as malware, ransomware and exploits that traditional antivirus solutions do not cover.

The company offers defense and recovery technologies to safeguard devices whether at home or in the office. The main office is in California with offices also in Europe and Asia.
