Malwarebytes is the industry-leading anti-malware and internet security software provider. Malwarebytes’ innovative real-time security tools detect and prevent malware infections for customers across the globe through Redis. The Malwarebytes Data and AI team is able to provide interactive dashboards that trace the trajectories and velocities of detected threats as they spread around the world. Redis has helped to enhance Malwarebytes by providing real time data.
Malwarebytes’ use of Redis Enterprise for fast data ingestion, session management, centralized stateful storage, time series analysis, and geospatial analysis allows the company to aggregate, correlate, and visualize data in a manner and speed it believes would not be possible without Redis Enterprise. Malwarebytes works better with Redis!
One thing we really liked about Redis Labs was that they were willing to sit with us and help us architect the best solution. Redis Labs keeps a very close watch on how the engineering community is using their product and that was the deciding factor for us.

Malwarebytes’ partnership with Redis Labs has helped it provide enhanced security through the use of Redis Enterprise. One of the challenges at hand was to create stateful storage for several of Malwarebytes’ lifeblood data streams. “We get billions and billions of records of malware detection information,” says Darren Chinen, Senior Director of Data and AI at Malwarebytes.
As malware is detected, threat details are streamed to a centralized data platform. Stateful environment information is also streamed and collected separately in stateful storage for streaming data joins. “Understanding environment state as malware detections are found in realtime is game changing,” says Chinen. “This technology has provided deep insights into malware proliferation, velocities and attack vectors that were previously impossible.” Malwarebytes and Redis have helped pave the way for this.
Darren Chinen, Senior Director Data & Artificial Intelligence (AI), Malwarebytes, talks about how they store, manage, and deliver big data anlaytics with real-time heat maps using Redis Enterprise.
Since its implementation at Malwarebytes, NoSQL Redis Enterprise has an essential part of the backbone of the company’s real-time streaming layer. Malwarebytes relies on several standout Redis features uniquely suited to its challenging use cases.
