Malwarebytes started its life as a company in 2004 as a one-man operation, but it wasn’t until four years later that its star product was released, simply called ‘Anti-Malware’. Since then the company has rapidly grown to establish itself as a serious player in the computer security industry.
Based on a successful freemium model where users can clean already infected machines for free or get real-time protection for a one-time fee, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware already counts hundreds of millions of downloads and over five billion infections cleaned.

What is Malwarebytes’ ?
Malwarebytes’ is community. Malwarebytes’ is technology. Malwarebytes’ is a belief that every person has a fundamental right to a malware-free existence.
Malwarebytes’ grew from a single person to a team of extremely motivated and highly caffeinated developers, researchers and staff members. Today, Malwarebytes’ is a leading provider of anti-malware solutions to consumers and businesses alike. With a global research team working around the clock, millions of Malwarebytes’ users can sleep soundly (we don’t!) knowing their computer is protected.
Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware is not meant to be a replacement for antivirus software. Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware is a complementary but essential program which detects and removes zero-day malware and “Malware in the Wild”. This includes malicious programs and files, such as viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, dialers, spyware, and rogue applications that many antivirus programs do not detect or cannot fully remove. It is important to note that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware works well and should run alongside antivirus software without conflicts. In some rare instances, exclusions may need to be set for your specific antivirus product to achieve the best possible system performance.
Where is Malwarebytes?
Malwarebytes’ would like to be located deep underground in an airtight bunker accessible only through a secret underwater cave with at least three steel-plated airlocks. Instead, Malwarebytes’ has offices in San Jose, California. They do not have any airlocks but the office vacuum is extremely powerful.
