Feedback on Malwarebytes Endpoint Security

I had a recent malware attack originated from an email attachment that was opened. I have now cleaned the PCs with various tools including Malwarebytes free. The exercise  turned out to be a very expensive and time-consuming task.
Malwarebytes free seemed to do a good job so I'm considering purchasing a licence for Malwarebytes Endpoint Security to give me real-time protection. There are many glowing reviews of this product on the Internet but rather too many "5 stars - brilliant product" for me to have confidence that they're genuine.

Have any Experts got any real-life feedback on the effectiveness of this software?

Well i must be honest with you ...i haven't tried the Full suite but when someone is hit by an infection the very 1st line of offense is MBAM....you have read it about a thousand times...so gives you the first info that this product is "good"
Beyond that the Full suite will offer much more layers of protection as this is intention....but you already know that there is no such thing as "perfect"...there are always backdoors and bugs hidden that a brilliant hacker can take advantage to give "you" a hard time.
So if you have the money to purchase it ...just go ahead and buy it...think it as you are adding one more lock to your door to keep you safe....but with all these crazy stuff popping from time to time (Spectre,Meltdown for example...who could have even consider a bug in low low level a year ago)....just remember that  a solid backup strategy is invaluable and not to ommit....and when you think you are done ...just take one more backup....just as i say ...its much better to have a previous month backup than no backup.

For the most part it works fine. Just be wary of trying to run it on a server (I've seen times where it caused serious performance issues). So it does deserve a decent grade from my experience. I won't say it's the best product in the world, but good for most cases.

That's because most products are Endpoint Security products these days, so they're meant for virus AND malware protection. I happen to like Cisco AMP for Endpoints because while it does do both of those, their console also lets see you processes that might've been involved with the entry of a bad file into the computer.

How do you rate AVG Internet Security Business Edition? I've got that installed at the moment and still got hit with TrickBot

I've never used AVG's business products, so I can't fairly judge it. However, also bear in mind that nothing is 100%, so you cannot realistically expect a product to catch everything. You might want to get into web filtering as well, which could assist with preventing things as well.

Thanks for your views. The more I read about AV and Malware protection the more I realise we're always going to be a step or so behind the villains so I agree, nothing is going to be 100%

I suppose the perfect protection would be to pull the plug on the router ;-)
