The purpose of this document is to assist IT personnel and/or staff responsible for installation and maintenance of Malwarebytes Management Console in creating an operating environment that serves Malwarebytes needs while not causing disruption to your existing environment.


Information presented here is based on pre-installation planning as well as certain operational needs which are beyond the scope of the Management Console Administrator Guide. All recommendations are grouped by primary topic, and each is prefaced by a more focused topic. Nothing presented here is intended to replace troubleshooting procedures and techniques required to isolate and correct technical issues which may be encountered during normal operation.


Malwarebytes Management Console consists of three components, each providing a different function. Within the context of this guide, these components will be referred to as:

  • Management Server: The web server, database server (embedded or external), and back-end product infrastructure

  • Primary User Interface: The user interface which is installed on the same computer which hosts the Management Server

  • Secondary User Interface: An auxiliary user interface which may be installed on one or more endpoints in your environment which are not serving as a host for the Management Server.
