Our VP of Cyber Security, Dodi Glenn, sat down to have a conversation with Thomas Lawrence of Lawrence Systems about his video review of PC Matic, Malwarebytes, and the current state of the antivirus industry.
Last week, Tom Lawrence put together a video review of our product in response to the current situation between our company PC Pitstop and Malwarebytes. We sincerely thank him for taking the time to perform a fair review of our product and taking even more time today to talk with Dodi and clear up misconceptions with PC Matic. We truly believe that public testing either by testing houses or by users, helps to improve our products in all areas and only results in better protection for our customers.
