Malwarebytes ensures that all endpoint deployment steps are put through a strong validation procedure to maintain strict control over its application install process.
- To ensure the deployment was not tampered with, Malwarebytes performs a signature-based check similar to Windows operating systems to verify the files prior to installation.
- During the initial pre-installation process, our endpoint software checks to ensure the correct binaries are loaded for the engine or plugins.
- During installation, our engine and plugin utilities run a secondary validation process so only Malwarebytes software is loaded.
If any of the signature-based checks fail, the patch will not deploy.
