Malwarebytes, a provider of anti-malware software, announced the acquisition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs, a vulnerability, exploit and security research and development firm whose technology proactively shields software applications from known and zero-day exploits used by exploit kits to Web-based vulnerability exploits.


Malwarebytes CEO, Marcin Kleczynski said: “We are always looking to improve upon our existing offerings, and have done so with the addition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs’ technology. The proactive nature of this technology makes it a great addition and complement to the existing Malwarebytes software suite.”

ZeroVulnerabilityLabs has developed multiple products, including a browser and corporate edition of its flagship product, ExploitShield. Both the corporate and browser editions include the protection needed to prevent drive-by download attacks originating from commercial exploit kits.

The corporate edition adds additional protection against file format-targeted attacks, media format-targeted attacks and advanced stealth-targeted attacks.

“We are excited to be joining the Malwarebytes team and to work to advance the latest anti-exploit R&D efforts, which we started at ZeroVulnerabilityLabs,” said Pedro Bustamante, co-founder and CEO of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs. “It is a great fit between two companies who are fighting malware in innovative and effective ways in order to protect both users and companies from the most dangerous and complex types of attacks.”
