It sounds like the split part makes good business sense though. From your link: Malwarebytes lays off 100+ workers ahead of planned company split - SiliconANGLE

The executive added that the workforce reduction comes amid an effort by Malwarebytes to split its consumer and enterprise businesses into two separate companies. The deal will be officially announced in the coming weeks, Kleczynski detailed.

Malwarebytes recently acquired a startup called Cyrus Security that developed a cybersecurity application for consumers. The application can detect if a user’s personal information appears on hacker forums and also provides a number of other features, including a built-in VPN. The technology that Malwarebytes obtained through the acquisition could help enhance the product portfolio of its consumer business following the corporate split.

I'd like to see this company staying on the business as I am very satisfied with their products, the anti-malware solution helped when needed.
