Malwarebytes brings B2B security under spin-off ThreatDown

Malwarebytes has spun off its B2B operations into the new company ThreatDown. The spin-off will focus entirely on enterprise security solutions, such as managed services and endpoint detection.

The spin-off of Malwarebytes’ business operations, which were housed in Malwarebytes for Business, had been up in the air for some time. Earlier this year, 100 employees were laid off as part of a possible split of the company into two independent business units.

Introduction of ThreatDown

With the introduction of ThreatDown, the spin-off is now a fact. The new security company will focus primarily on enterprise security solutions, such as endpoint detection and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services.

The new ThreatDown will have almost the same management as the now consumer-focused Malwarebytes. New layoffs are not on the table for now. However, TechCrunch writes, some C-level changes would have taken place. The CTO, CPO and CIO, among others, have left.

New portfolio

ThreatDown provides two new services within its new portfolio; Security Advisor and ThreatDown Bundles. ThreatDown Security Advisor analyzes the cybersecurity state within companies and shows in a dashboard its health status and gaps in defenses. The tool provides improvement recommendations, allowing administrators to take immediate action.

The new ThreatDown Bundles service are four bundles of managed (enterprise) security services that allow companies to streamline their cybersecurity and achieve greater efficiency and cost savings.

Options within these bundles range from AI-supported security incident resolution to fully managed 24/7/365 support. This is based on different pricing, allowing companies to purchase the security technology they want on a customized basis.
