Malwarebytes quietly becomes a big player in anti-malware software

Malwarebytes has quietly become a force in security technology, achieving more than 100 million downloads of its anti-malware product since 2008. Now the profitable company is adding a million users monthly for its Malwarebytes software, which cleans infections off computers.
That growth rate — fueled all by word of mouth — has been possible because of the combination of the explosion in malware and the popularity of the freemium model, where users can get a measure of protection for free and pay extra for premium service. Over time, the San Jose, Calif.-based company says it has detected more than 5 billion pieces of malware during its history.

“The big antivirus companies started 15 years ago, but our solution is less than three years old and it is built to deal with the problems we have today,” said Marcin Kleczynski (pronounced Kleh-chin-ski), founder and chief executive of Malwarebytes.
