Malwarebytes says Binisoft’s Windows Firewall Control is used by millions of users and will significantly enhance the Malwarebytes endpoint protection platform.
“We’ve seen tremendous demand from our customer base for these capabilities,” said Marcin Kleczynski, chief executive of Malwarebytes.
“With continued increases in cyber threats, including malware that communicates and coordinates data theft, it is more important than ever for businesses to easily manage their Windows Firewall and establish communication polices to prevent programs from initiating unauthorised outbound connections.
Kleczynski said Binisoft Windows Firewall Control would quickly integrate into the Malwarebytes platform, which simplifies the deployment and ongoing management of security solutions – and administrators would benefit from broader visibility into endpoints existing within their environment.
According to Kleczynski, Malwarebytes offers superior endpoint security technology and continues to achieve high sustained sales and organisational growth, strong recurring revenue, and positive cash-flow generation.
He said that during the past 12 months, Malwarebytes experienced a seven-fold increase in large enterprise customers and the company has more than 60,000 B2B customers and 700 global employees and growing.
The Binisoft acquisition closely follows two recent acquisitions by Malwarebytes of “pivotal” security companies, including Saferbytes and AdwCleaner.
For the near term, Binisoft will retain its current name, supplemented by Malwarebytes branding.
