SAN JOSE, Calif. January 21, 2016 Malwarebytes, the leading advanced malware prevention and remediation solution, today announced a $50 million Series B funding round from Fidelity Management and Research Company.*

Malwarebytes surpassed $100 million in annualized billings in 2015 and achieved its 31st consecutive cash flow positive quarter. Revenues grew by more than 120 percent driven by rapid enterprise expansion. Founded in 2008 by Marcin Kleczynski, the company was bootstrapped until raising a $30 million Series A funding round in July 2014, led by Highland Capital Partners.

Congratulations to Marcin and all our friends over at Malwarebytes! This is excellent news, a good way to start 2016! :)

Glad that I got over 5,000 posts on MBAM forum quite a while back.

 

Not sure if it is still offered, but they sent a T-shirt , Cap , Drinks cup , and a few other goodies direct to my house in Australia ...(I was shocked when it turned up)....

I have not yet seen another one out on the streets.

 

From memory, I was the first one to get these in Australia, and I still wear the cap and T-shirt while outside every summer, and the cap sits on my computer desk ...(very well cared for)......

They had a store at one time but that link no longer works.

Just so everyone knows, our store is finally live. Sorry for the delay!

AFAIK Malwarebytes has been out of the "swag" business (at least for non-employees) for several years.
