Malwarebytes is a virus, malware, and spyware scanning program. CUIT has purchased Malwarebytes licenses as the central endpoint solution for affiliated Columbia University students, faculty, and staff. 


Current Lamont students

  • You are allotted one (1) free license for Malwarebytes anti-malware software. 

  • Malwarebytes will require you to validate your license to ensure you are a current student every 12 months. 

     Visit CUIT’s secure software download portal to download Malwarebytes.

Current Lamont faculty and staff

  • Lamont faculty and staff can download and install Malwarebytes for the Columbia owned or grant purchased devices. Columbia's license agreement does not extend to personal devices at home. Please do not use for personal use.

  • LDEO IT is the designated IT department to centrally manage Malwarebytes deployment and monitoring for Lamont's faculty and staff.  You should reach out to [email protected] to protect your Mac and Windows computer.
