New Mac OS X Remediation Offering and Forensics Capabilities for Enterprise

At Malwarebytes, our mission is to protect consumers and businesses from the most dangerous cyber threats.

Today, we announced a new solution that will dramatically change endpoint detection and response (EDR) for Mac users – a growing target area for hackers.

The fact that Mac users are safe from cyber threats is a common misconception. While it’s true that Macs aren’t plagued with the amount of malware and ransomware that affect other machines and operating systems, there have already been several high-profile breaches involving Macs. Most notably, a few have already hit both Apple and Facebook employees.

The reality is that cyber criminals are putting more resources toward exploiting them. With an estimated 15-25 percent of employees in the workplace using Macs and Mac sales increasing globally while PC shipments decline, it’s a smart and very lucrative move for hackers.

Malwarebytes Breach Remediation is the only EDR solution that detects and removes infections and related artifacts simultaneously across all endpoints on a network. It can be a very powerful solution for Mac users who are increasingly at risk, whether they know it or not.

The new Mac client easily integrates with existing Mac OS X management solutions, like Apple Remote Desktop, Casper Suite, and Munki, facilitating rapid deployment and use.

In addition to the new Mac client, we also released new forensics capabilities for Malwarebytes Breach Remediation to help our customers answer the incredibly critical questions of what happened, how it happened, and when it happened during a malware infection.

As new and advanced threats continue to surface every day, we will never stop seeking out ways to give companies and consumers the tools they need to defend themselves.

We’ll also be hosting a tweetchat at 11 a.m. PDT with our Director of Mac Offering Thomas Reed. Use #MacBiz to submit your questions.

Thank you for all of your support throughout the years. We look forward to what lies ahead.
