So I've been put in charge of looking for adding additional security to our network after a recent bout with Cerber Ransomware, which was luckily contained and caused minimal damage. Now we already run McAfee SAAS on our computers and was looking at getting Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit because I need an Anti-Malware program that auto updates, runs real time scans along with scheduled scans, and also can send a daily report on what was caught on what computer so I can keep track of it. I was informed that Anti-Exploit does this and wanted to know if any other Anti-Malware programs for a business environment does the same thing. I personally use the MBAM Free at home since I know what to look out for when going through email and browsing the web but this is the first time I've had to support a business environment so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Hi:

 

Malwarebytes offers a combined anti-malware + anti-exploit product for the Business/Endpoint environment.

More info here: https://www.malwarebytes.org/business/endpointsecurity/

(They are currently beta-testing for home users an anti-ransomware product that will eventually be incorporated into MBAM.  I expect that they will likewise eventually (further down the road) incorporate that technology into MBAM-Business.)

 

There are other options by other software vendors, too.

 

HTH,

MM (unaffiliated financially or otherwise with Malwarebytes)

For the best defensive strategy to protect yourself from malware and ransomware infection, see my comments (Post #2) in this topic.

MBAM used to be good. Not so much anymore.  Anyone 'current' on IT really doesn't even recommend or use it anymore. I just saw MBAM score under 66% on one industry standard test and well, that's pointless.

 

Install Trend Hosted for Business. Enable all of the anti-ransomware checkboxes and profit. Get something good on the edge, like a Fortinet with Extreme Definitions and Extended IPS. Good to go.

A lot of security experts would disagree with that opinion.

Indeed.
@ITguy2016, as you probably know, all those "AV comparatives" tests can be skewed, biased and manipulated. Not to mention, neither MBAM nor MBAE is an anti-virus. They are anti-malware applications. Apples & oranges. Even with both Premium applications, one needs a robust AV & other layers, both for Consumers & for Endpoints.
I have no skin in the game, as I am just a home user.
But perhaps you would share with us the data (& links to the tests from which they were derived), so that we and the other forum visitors can make informed decisions?

Thanks,
MM
