Leaders in Network Security and Endpoint Protection and Remediation Join Forces to Provide Unprecedented Security, Visibility and Control to SMB IT
SAN JOSE, Calif. – December 18, 2018 – Untangle® Inc., Untangle® Inc., a leader in comprehensive network security for small-to-medium business, and Malwarebytes, the leading advanced endpoint protection and remediation solution, today announced a new agreement to integrate Malwarebytes’ Endpoint Protection and Untangle’s cloud security platform, Command Center, to provide administrators with a single pane of glass to manage security orchestration across the network and connected devices, ensuring consistent, comprehensive security protection end-to-end.
“It can be overwhelming for companies to evaluate, deploy and manage disparate security solutions today,” said Michael Osterman, principal analyst with Osterman Research. “Untangle’s seamless integration with Malwarebytes is particularly compelling as it provides enhanced visibility and streamlined Command Center operations to reduce the headache of managing security operations for SMBs. This gives a particularly powerful end-to-end solution for the products when paired.”
“Channel partners are essential in getting proper security solutions into the hands of SMBs, so it’s crucial that we understand their customers and barriers to adoption,” said Scott Devens, chief executive officer at Untangle. “As we expected, cost and a lack of manpower are key pain points when it comes to security for both SMBs and channel partners. However, we were surprised to learn that more and more customers are becoming savvy to phishing attacks, with 43 percent of channel customers reporting attacks before a breach occurred.”
Untangle Command Center coupled with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection offers administrators:
- Greater visibility into the profile of hosts on the network including operating systems, installed software and security status.
- Status of the last Malwarebytes scan, including time, duration, threats discovered, quarantined endpoints and any remediation.
- Ability to initiate a Malwarebytes scan on any host, plus easy navigation between Untangle Command Center and Malwarebytes Management portal.
- A single pane of glass for understanding the security status of the network and connected hosts, including identified threats and remediation.
“SMBs have limited resources and need an integrated security solution that is centralized and takes the guess work out of network security,” said Raj Mallempati, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Malwarebytes. “By integrating Malwarebytes’ Endpoint Protection with Untangle’s Command Center, we are able to give network administrators at small and medium-sized businesses control and visibility into their environment. This integration is a security win as it gives customers an easy-to-use, centralized platform to ensure the safety of their networks and connected devices.”
Untangle Command Center provides cloud-based, centralized management for Untangle NG Firewall deployments. With the integration of Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection, Command Center gives administrators full visibility, protection and control over the network and connected devices.
“Our partnership agreement with Malwarebytes begins an evolution of Command Center towards a full network security orchestration platform,” said Scott Devens, chief executive officer at Untangle. “This integrated solution makes an enterprise-grade, layered approach to security possible for small and medium-sized organizations by providing a simple, seamless approach to threat detection and remediation.”
“As a distributor of both Malwarebytes and Untangle, we believe that this partnership will provide immediate value to our MSPs by helping them understand the security posture of their networks and connected devices at a glance, filling a need for simplified and streamlined security orchestration for their SMB clients,” said Jay Bradley, founder and managing director of Prodata.
