I'd like comments on using malwarebytes in conjunction with Microsoft Security Essentials/Forefront Endpoint Protection.

Does using one obviate the need for the other?

Do they work well together?

I'm considering purchasing malwarebytes and want to make sure there won't be clashes with my existing environment.

Hello and :welcome:

Yes both of them will work together, and just so you know, Malwarebytes is not an antivirus software, it is designed to work along side your antivirus software.

Depending on your version of windows, you may have to enter exceptions in your Microsoft Security Essentials to exclude the Malwarebytes files. I can give you that info if you tell me your version of windows.
