Malwarebytes enhances OneView platform to improve protection for SMB customers
Malwarebytes has extended the capabilities of its OneView platform and expanded the company’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) program. In addition to endpoint security, MSPs can now access vulnerability assessment, patch management, and domain name system (DNS) filtering from Malwarebytes OneView.
“At Malwarebytes, we aim to serve the underserved, which is what our MSP partners do for SMBs every day,” said Brian Thomas, Vice President of MSP Programs and Global Channels at Malwarebytes. “I joined Malwarebytes with ambitious plans that are coming to fruition through our incredible team and unwavering commitment to helping new and existing MSP partners keep their customers safe while catapulting their businesses to new heights.”
Delivering cybersecurity services and protecting customer environments from malware requires a skilled team that can provide 24/7 coverage. Yet many MSPs struggle with limited staff resources, skyrocketing costs and the complexity of managing multiple solutions to uncover hidden threats. Today’s MSPs need streamlined and simplified solutions to help them keep pace.
The Malwarebytes OneView platform enables MSPs to deliver endpoint security products that reduce malware infections and exposure to ransomware. The platform enables security analysts of all skill levels to be efficient from a centralized cloud-based console. With different levels of protection capabilities and threat prevention modules, MSPs can offer the right product or service to each customer, tailored to their specific needs.
This quarter, Malwarebytes continued to build on OneView, adding three new modules that simplify breach prevention within the same cloud interface that MSPs already trust for detection and remediation:
- Vulnerability and patch managementwhich enables MSPs to take control of their entire patching process, ensuring defenses are up-to-date across their customers’ environments.
- DNS Filteringwhich allows organizations to regulate access to websites and other content on corporate-managed networks, which in turn strengthens the security of corporate data.
- Vulnerability assessmentwhich helps users understand exposure, identify vulnerabilities, and prioritize actions to update defenses across device and server operating systems and a wide range of third-party applications.
“Continued expansion of the OneView platform allows us to help our customers with enhanced protection modules and expert support, reducing the time and resource investments needed to protect their organizations against increasingly complex vulnerabilities. “, said Daniel MitchellCEO of Alt-Tech.
“Our partnership with Malwarebytes means stronger, simpler protection for our SMB customers, helping them navigate successfully against potential threats,” Mitchell continued.
Malwarebytes’ initial MSP program and OneView showed significant traction, driving over 250% year-over-year growth, with over 2,700 new global MSP partners and strategic partnerships with Addigy, Atera, ConnectWise, Datto, GCN Group , Kaseya, Sherweb, TeamViewer and a regional Soft Solutions partner.
Based on business demand and future growth projections, Malwarebytes has added over 30 employees over the past six months to the MSP team, including Nadia Karatsoreos dedicated to empowering MSPs to grow their businesses profitably. The company plans to continue to expand the MSP program with new product innovations as well as additional resources and training.
“I am thrilled to join the Malwarebytes team during this pivotal time,” said Nadia Karatsoreos, Senior MSP Growth Strategist at Malwarebytes.
“MSPs have been tasked with protecting their customers from cyber threats, which is no easy task. They not only need the tools, but also a support provider to be able to sell and serve their customers with confidence. I am so excited to be able to continue helping MSPs grow their businesses,” Karatsoreos continued.
