Malwarebytes protection is delivered to you as an installable client agent.  Each agent serves a different purpose, and must be configured to provide proper functionality.  The two agents are:

  • Incident Response
  • Endpoint Protection


Agent Features

Scans areas of your endpoints malware usually resides at your command.

Scheduled scans

Real-time Protection

Shield your endpoints from malware, exploits, ransomware, and malicious websites in real-time.



If you have subscribed to Endpoint Protection, note the following:
