Addigy, a cloud-based, multi-tenant Apple device management software company, on Thursday announced the launch of a new integration with cybersecurity vendor Malwarebytes.

Miami, Fla.-based Addigy, which offers multi-tenant software that enables manages service providers (MSPs) and corporate IT teams to monitor and manage devices from a single location, said the new collaboration will offer more protections against cybercriminals and malicious attacks. San Francisco-based Malwarebytes recently announced plans for an MSP program buildup after a $100 million venture capital investment – with plans to double the size of its channel team over the next year.

In an interview with CRN, Addigy founder and CEO Jason Dettbarn said enterprise customers may get too complacent about security issues because of Apple’s reputation for creating a more secure device. “The truth is we’ve seen more attacks on Apple devices this past year than ever before,” Dettbarn said. “The hard part is that with security companies, there just aren’t many that focus on Apple products. So we put this together with Malwarebytes as an easy way to deploy security out-of-the-box.”

Malwarebytes’ OneView platform enables MSPs and IT admins to streamline operations with centralized management of customers endpoints, license subscriptions, reporting and global policies. Customers now have the option of deploying Malwarebytes’ products directly through Addigy. The integration includes Malwarebytes’ Incident Response (IR), Endpoint Protection (EP), Endpoint Protection for Servers (EPS, Endpoint Protection and Response (EDR), and Enpoint Detection and Response for Servers (EDRS).

“We are a global consultancy firm with over 180 Mac devices across the world,” Andrew Robinson, manager of IT at Impact International, said in a statement. “We have been using another anti-malware provider for a few years, and although Addigy let me deploy this to all my devices, I had to create a complicated install scriopt and push out a number of other bits to make it work. When I hear Addigy was partnering with Malwarebytes and that I would not have to create my own deployment, I jumped at the chance to try it out. Adding the Malwarebytes add-in to my policies was simple. Within minutes, the endpoints had the software and were showing the Malwarebytes portal.”

Brian Thomas, vice president of Worldwide MSP and Channel Programs at Malwarebytes, said in a statement, “We are committed to serving the underserved, which all to often are small- and medium-sized businesses. By partnering with leading MSPs, we can cost-effectively deliver advanced cybersecurity solutions to keep organizations safe.”

He added, “Addigy is the perfect partner to accelerate our shared mission to help Apple users manage endpoint risks at scale.”
