MDR with the Best ROI  

Malwarebytes MDR placed on 12 reports for G2 Fall 2023 reports, winning badges for “Easiest to do Business With”, “Best Est. ROI” , “Easiest to Use”, and “Easiest Admin”.  

“Malwarebytes MDR is simple to deploy and manage. They increase our security posture, meet cyber security insurance requirements, and make a great partner to augment my small IT team.”

“We wanted to extend our SOC team with MDR services, and that has always been our vision with Malwarebytes since we look at the company as a partner, rather than a vendor. Malwarebytes MDR enables us to meet the need for 24 x7 coverage with professional security experts who work in the industry every day.”

Matthew Verniere, Richards Building Supply

“Cyber threats are 24/7, and my team needs to sleep. The MDR team watching our network around-the-clock gives us a chance to sleep without worry. With Malwarebytes MDR backing us up, I also finally got to step away and take a two-week vacation. I’m just glad to know that we have a security team watching over our shoulder and making sure it’s all clear.”

Dennis Davis, IT Systems Manager, Drummond
