Malwarebytes
Traditional antivirus fails because it’s slow to react to new threats. Malwarebytes uses layers of technology like anomaly detection (a cool sort of artificial intelligence), behavior matching, and application hardening to crush malware that hasn’t even been seen before.

2022. Malwarebytes lands a $100M cash injection weeks after laying off 125 employees



Cybersecurity giant Malwarebytes has announced it has received a $100 million cash injection after laying off 125 employees. Malwarebytes CEO Marcin Kleczynski says that he has refocused the company on where we win; providing effective, easy to use cybersecurity solutions to those who are underserved by the competitors. The investment will enable Malwarebytes to further grow its team, innovate its products, and expand its MSP partner and international channel programs to best serve our existing and future customers.


2021. Investor consortium to acquire McAfee for $14B



Cybersecurity software company McAfee took another interesting twist today when an investor consortium consisting of six investment firms announced that they were purchasing the company for $14 billion. The investor group companies will each be providing financial and operational resources. How that will work isn’t completely clear. The company will certainly have a lot of bosses to deal with. It’s worth noting that McAfee built in a “go shop” provision into the deal, a fairly common practice that gives it 45 days to find a better price. While that is an unlikely outcome, the provision provides shareholders with some proof the company got the best deal it could for them.


2021. McAfee sells its enterprise business



Security firm McAfee is selling its enterprise business to a consortium led by the private equity firm Symphony Technology Group for $4 billion. It should pair well with RSA, another enterprise-focused security company the private equity firm purchased last February for $2 billion. McAfee President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Leav says that his company has decided to direct the firm’s resources to the consumer side of the business.
