Malwarebytes Acquisition, Layoffs, and Business Split


Recommended Posts

Recently, Malwarebytes announced the acquisition of Cyrus, described as "a disruptive innovator in online privacy solutions".

From the TechCrunch article, Malwarebytes lays off 100 employees ahead of business split:

Kleczynski said the layoffs were part of a plan to separate the company into two separate business units, but denied that it planned to sell any part of the business.

The split — which was not previously made public — will see Malwarebytes separate its consumer and corporate-facing business units. The consumer business will focus on tools such as identity protection and VPN, while the remaining business will focus on enterprise-facing software like managed and endpoint detection, Kleczynski tells TechCrunch.

Full details of the split have not yet been finalized but will be announced in the coming weeks.
