Webroot to Showcase Security Intelligence Solutions at InfoSecurity Europe 2013

New Research, Strategic Partnerships and User Protection Pricing Reaffirms Long-term Commitment to the Region

Broomfield, CO, USA and London – April 23, 2013

Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, will be announcing the findings of a new remote access security report and showcasing its cloud security intelligence solutions at InfoSecurity Europe 2013 from April 23 through 25, 2013 at booth #D60 in Earls Court London. The study, which surveyed Web security decision-makers in the United Kingdom and United States, found that mobile workforces expose corporate networks to high rates of malware threats, including phishing attacks, spyware, keyloggers and hacked passwords.

Webroot's presence at Europe's largest Information Security industry event marks significant EMEA channel momentum following recently announced partnerships with Saudi Arabian-based ValueBoxx and Dekkers Intermediair BV in the Netherlands. In addition, Webroot is focusing substantial efforts in the emerging EMEA market with the implementation of the Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business User Protection Pricing, through which new and existing partners will receive more cost-effective security so they can increase sales while achieving better margins.

Highlights from the new research and featured Webroot security solutions at InfoSecurity Europe 2013 include:

  • Survey: Remote Users Expose Companies to Cybercrime – Conducted by Webroot, the new research shows corporate networks with a mobile workforce experienced high rates of malware threats, hacked passwords, and SQL injection attacks. According to the results, half of companies with a remote workforce had their Web sites compromised in 2012.
  • Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection – Leverages a powerful cloud-based threat analysis engine to offer the fastest, lightest and most effective endpoint protection possible. IT managers no longer have to waste resources and lose user productivity due to intrusive scans and continuous signature updating, patching and reimaging remote user devices.

By incorporating Webroot's best-in-class URL classification, mobile app reputation, antimalware protection and IP reputation services, mobile technology partners can deliver highly secure solutions that can grow their customer bases, maximize recurring revenue streams, and increase their customers' protection.

This suite provides network partners access to Webroot's experience in contextual data and active learning, as well as best-in-class URL classification, antimalware protection and mobile app and IP reputation services.

"Traditional security needs to adapt to address the combination of today's sophisticated cyber-threats with the requirement of the enterprise's need for anywhere protection. The new remote access security study is particularly telling as it suggests that security professionals are struggling to adapt," said Charles Tomeo, VP Global Channel and Technical Sales, Webroot. "Today, individuals and businesses in EMEA need security that protects them regardless of how or where they connect, and blocks new threats as soon as they appear. As a result, we have employed a channel-driven approach to extend enhanced privacy, performance and protection to customers worldwide, and we look forward to sharing our knowledge and solutions at InfoSecurity Europe 2013."

Managed service providers, mobile device management companies and channel partners in EMEA are provided with access to the full range of Webroot security solutions which provides advanced real-time protection against both known and unknown malware. The cloud-based security intelligence solutions are backed by responsive global sales and support teams to help channel partners accelerate business growth and gain a long-term competitive advantage.
