  1. We've been long-time users of Malwarebytes. Our typical usage has been to deploy to desktops and laptops. This past weekend we purchased another license and deployed it onto a corporate File Server. This morning during a staff meeting the question was raised about whether or not the product is suitable for use on a File Server? Can someone confirm or deny this use case? If it is deemed appropriate to protect a File Server, we'd appreciate a reference to the technical materials that describe the benefits. We've been reading various blogs an articles on the Malwarebytes website, and it seems they are distinguishing anti-virus and anti-malware. That anti-virus is signature-based, whereas anti-malware is behavior-based. But we cannot find details about what specific behaviors the software watches for and catches. This makes it challenging to evaluate whether or not it is suitable to protect a File Server. The Malwarebytes description of the differences between anti-virus and anti-malware is also somewhat confusing. If Malwarebytes is strictly behavior-based, why does it perform a whole disk scan? Wouldn't scanning files at rest imply it is signature-based as well? The deeper we dig into this topic, the more questions we seem to uncover. Most of them revolve around a more precise explanation of exactly what Malwarebytes is doing. What is it looking for, and what is it protecting against? I understand there is a reluctance to reveal too much information for fear of arming the criminals and protecting Malwarebytes' corporate advantage, but without more technical details I can't see how a system administrator can evaluate the product use cases.
