Incident Response

Reduces malware dwell-time and the need to re-image infected endpoints.


According to research conducted by the Ponemon Institute, malicious or criminal data breaches take an average of 229 days to identify and 82 days to contain. The time required to remediate these incidents is substantial, often taking hours just to re-image a single endpoint. Lengthy dwell time and time-consuming re-imaging seem inevitable to an experienced IT team. Malwarebytes Incident Response changes the status quo.

Automate threat response

Pre-deploy Malwarebytes Incident Response on your endpoints so you have advanced threat detection and remediation ready at the click of a button. Automating threat response helps businesses accelerate their incident response workflows while reducing malware dwell times.

Complete and thorough remediation

Most attempts to remove malware focus primarily on the active executable, but leave numerous components littered throughout the system, making the system highly vulnerable to re-infection. Our proprietary Linking Engine Remediation removes the infection, including all related artifacts, returning the endpoint to a truly healthy state.

Flexible deployment and integration

Malwarebytes Incident Response includes persistent and non-persistent agent options, providing flexible deployment options for varying IT environments. Easily integrates into your existing security infrastructure while meeting your endpoint operating system requirements (Windows and Mac OS X).
