Malwarebytes yesterday introduced the new Malwarebytes Enterprise Edition (MEE).

"According to the company, Malwarebytes Enterprise Edition ... will work alongside a company's existing anti-virus solution to provide a new layer of defence against targeted threats which use attack vectors including email, social networks and instant messenger," SC Magazine reports.

"The product leverages the experience gained from the extremely popular Malwarebytes Anti-Malware product, which has been used by over 150 million people worldwide to block or remove over five billion pieces of malware," writes CRN's Ken Presti. "The enterprise edition is aimed at protecting companies of all sizes from the threats posed by cutting-edge malware such as zero-day, polymorphic and blended malware threats that can evade traditional enterprise anti-virus solutions."

"The technology runs in batch mode and is designed to avoid conflicts with any regular anti-malware software already loaded on the same corporate desktop," writes The Register's John Leyden.

"Built from the ground up, we developed a new approach to secure, control and remediate endpoints that has already been broadly adopted in the consumer marketplace," Malwarebytes CEO Marcin Kleczynski said in a statement. "MEE's heuristic and behavior-based analysis engine adds a powerful second layer of defense to today’s corporate systems that more effectively safeguards sensitive corporate assets from the organized crime rings behind much of today's malware."

"Pricing for 100 seat licenses of MEE begins at $1,315, with some special pricing available for government, education and non-profit companies," writes SearchSecurity's Moriah Sargent. "MEE is compatible with Windows Server 2003, 2008 and 2008 R2 and supports XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems."
