Malwarebytes Business Solution

Well to make a long story short, I am trying to increase defense against new malware infections, such as Lockey ransomware that's currently spread via email.  Some of my clients are using GFI mailessentials, and its placing these emails in quarantine, while other clients are using Symantec MailSecurity for Exchange on SBS2011/2008, and its not catching them.  Symantec Support indicted since is uses .js a rule can be created to block .js.  I did that and it blocked a slew of pdfs that were either created by an internal scanner or from credible outside sources.  It appears pdfs have .js coding embedded somehow.  So, symantec stated that they do not have a resolution and to either block all .js or leave it as is and take the risk.  

So after some research, I found other methods of protection against lockey and other new ramsomware, malware, etc., and it was suggested acquiring malwarebytes to compliment existing antivirus software.  If it works as expected, then if someone accidentally opens an lockey infected email, then malwarebytes ought to stop it in its tracks.  I hope it works as intended.  I need to do something since all customers are being bombarded with emails with Document1 and Document2, etc., since last week.

When I visit malwarebytes website for business they offer an endpoint, enterprise version, small business, for business, etc.  I really can't see a difference other than price.  Since most of my customers already use webroot, Symantec Endpoint protection, Trendmicro worry-free business they just need malwarebytes to work along side of it and trap "new" malware that they can't.

So my questions are:

Which specific malwarebytes version is recommended just to work with existing anti-virus software (webroot, Symantec, TrendMicro?
Customers that have more than 10 computers, I would like a console to manage scans/trapped infections.
Webroot offers and on-line console, which is great.  Does malwarebytes offer a similar solution? I want to avoid installing more software on each network as much possible.
Then again, do I really need a console?  I believe malwarebytes pretty much runs on its own with the default installation.
Some clients have Mac computers and laptops, are they supported?  Can they be managed via a central console is necessary?  I checked with Webroot, and they support Macs, but they cannot manage them via their web console. I just want to know if this applies to malwarebytes.

What about server protection?  Is it necessary to install Malwarebytes on file servers, exchange, SQL, domain controllers, web servers, etc?  I have a file server of which I installed Webroot, so I have webroot installed on this server and all clients.  I also have exchange, sql, and domain controllers, web server, but I did not install any antivirus software since clients do not access these servers directly.  Some of these servers are hyper-v VMs as well.

I need to look at the specifics for Macs.  Maybe I should just consider Webroot for Mac as a sole solution.  Not sure yet.  I just want to make sure all endpoints are protected as best possible regardless of OS.

I just got a call back from Malwarebytes, and they suggest purchasing Malwarebytes endpoint versions since it includes the  anti-exploit piece.   Anti-exploit is supposed to be stay on top of new malware so that new exploits are trapped and stopped before an compromise is discovered.

Thanks for your help!
