"With no previous funding, the Malwarebytes team has built an advanced engine which has stopped billons of cutting-edge threats. The company's reputation for detecting the most sophisticated malware in this way has created a hugely loyal customer-base," said Corey Mulloy, Partner at Highland Capital Partners.
