Malwarebytes Endpoint Security supports all stock Windows Server Operating Systems from 2008 through 2016 and variants thereof, all in our real-time protection modules; Web Protection, Anti-Exploit, Anti-Malware, and Anti-Ransomware.

 

However, some protection modules should not be enabled for specific Server Roles. The following Malwarebytes recommended configurations should be applied to these Server Roles, as other configurations have been found to cause conflict or performance issues. Malwarebytes continues improving its protection modules every day and will update the below guidance as new versions are released and tested.
