Some Malwarebytes Nebula platform actions may be performed by command line to help with custom scripting or automation by software deployment and remote monitoring and management (RMM) tools.
The Endpoint Agent Command-line tool, EACmd, is a Windows™ application created to communicate with the Endpoint Agent service. This article covers suggested methods of using EACmd in your scripts or deployment methods.
EACmd works with the Endpoint Agent using the same communication method as the Endpoint Agent Tray program. EACmd is located on each Windows endpoint at C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Endpoint Agent\UserAgent\EACmd.exe.

Check for Protection Updates via command line (Windows)
This command performs an immediate check for Protection Updates. It is identical to performing a Protection Updates check from the Endpoints screen in the console.
Scans perform this check before scanning. The Protection Updates check also ensures Real-Time Protection uses the most recent updates.
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Endpoint Agent\UserAgent\EACmd.exe -updateprotection
Check for Software Updates via command-line (Windows)
This command performs an immediate check for updates to the Malwarebytes software on the endpoint. It is identical to performing a Software Updates check from the Endpoints screen in the console.
Any manual check for Software Updates ignores the Pause Software Updates policy setting.
