Because of the current global climate, more and more businesses are forced to work from the comfort of their homes. This results in employees, most especially executives, using insecure networks and relying on basic anti-virus software to keep their information safe. Malwarebytes recognizes this shift in computing and acknowledges the need for better, more diligent cybersecurity.
Malwarebytes is an anti-malware software for Windows founded in 2006 by the Malwarebytes Corporation. It specializes in data and cybersecurity most notably against malware attacks from hackbots, trojans, adware, and the like.

This means the demand for a more secure cyber-environment is higher than ever.
