“Adam is known for being a gifted technology strategist with a contagious energy. He has built many successful products and propelled companies during critical growth periods,” said Marcin Kleczynski, CEO of Malwarebytes. “I knew immediately when I met Adam that his drive and creativity would be the perfect addition to our engineering team to help us stay ahead of a consolidating market and build the right products for our customers both today and in the future.”

Hyder joins the Malwarebytes team with over 20 years of experience in engineering and a reputation for skilled management and strategic expertise. He has a proven track record of successfully bringing large-scale consumer and SaaS products to market and accelerating growth.

“In an increasingly digitized world, cybersecurity is the backbone we need to build tomorrow’s technology responsibly.
