SAN JOSE, Calif. -- June 20, 2013 -- Malwarebytes, a leading provider of anti-malware software, today announced the acquisition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs, Inc. , a vulnerability, exploit and security research and development firm. ZeroVulnerabilityLabs technology proactively shields software applications from known and zero-day exploits used by exploit kits, Web-based vulnerability exploits and other corporate-targeted attacks.

The acquisition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs complements and expands Malwarebytes(TM) industry-leading anti-malware suite, which includes Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro. Like Malwarebytes, ZeroVulnerabilityLabs has worked tirelessly to develop software that fights and protects users against malicious attacks.

"I am very pleased to announce the acquisition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs and to welcome its employees to the Malwarebytes team," said Malwarebytes CEO, Marcin Kleczynski. "We are always looking to improve upon our existing offerings, and have done so with the addition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs(TM) 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 all 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."

A new and improved version of ExploitShield with the latest features is being rebranded as Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and is available for a limited time through the ZeroVulnerabilityLabs website.
