Maybe @Shadowra could give this one a test also. When I remember correctly his tests always got MBAM down. For fun I checked whether the life time license (bought by my father decades ago, he always used MBAM as secondary protection) and to my surprise after a password reset it worked (y) He had a three device license.

What surprised me is that MBAM usually does not do great in the tests of professional labs (and @Shadowra :) ), but they seem to do reasonably well in the SME market. A friend of mine has a small IT service for local business, setting up websites, making sure there often one specific business application integrates well with mail, office and cloud storage He is a big fan of MBAM elite which also includes threat analysis and response by MBA's threat hunter's in case something goes terribly wrong. Together with a cloud storage which also offers ransomware protection, he says small business get professional protection.

Next time I see my friend, I will ask him whether he registers MBAM in the security center. After posting I remembered another of his mantra's: he always keeps Windows Defender on devices for small business. So I kind of get the impression he keeps defender active.

Ooohhhh, I've always coveted one of those, for no apparent reason. I was too late to the party years ago.
