KAM uses MBAM 1.8, not the latest 3.0


Kaseya AntiMalware module deploys Malwarebytes AntiMalware version 1.8, not the latest 3.0.


Kaseya AntiMalware module uses Malwarebytes AntiMalware Business Edition, which is currently version 1.8. Version 3.x is a "Home" edition and not suitable for our customers.


Kaseya's Official Statement: 

Malwarebytes, a valued Kaseya partner for over 5 years, ships two core editions of its products: one for Home use and one for Business use.

Kaseya AntiMalware (KAM) ships with Malwarebytes 1.8, the latest version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Business. For the complete release history for this product, see the official release notes: https://www.malwarebytes.com/support/releasehistory/business/.

Although Malwarebytes did ship a version 3.0 of their product in December of 2016, it was version 3.0 of their “Home” product, not their centrally managed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Business product. According to Malwarebytes, “The centrally managed Malwarebytes 3.0 will be shipping for Business customers by early next year.” KAM will support this version shortly after it is released.
