SANTA CLARA, Calif. – January 29, 2018 – Malwarebytes™, the leading advanced malware prevention and remediation solution, today announced it has been positioned in the Visionaries quadrant of the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.

“Malware infections mean lost revenue and devastating implications for businesses,” said Marcin Kleczynski, CEO Malwarebytes. “Businesses need a solution that goes beyond the limitations of traditional antivirus products. We believe that the positioning of Malwarebytes in this Gartner Magic Quadrant validates our leadership and vision to continue as the enterprise’s best choice for advanced malware prevention and remediation. We feel that we continue to gain momentum as the incident response and endpoint protection tool of choice, offering a malware-free future for organizations of all sizes.”

Malwarebytes develops the best malware remediation tools on the market and has made significant strides in the creation of cutting-edge protection and remediation technology for businesses.
