Webroot SecureAnywhere®
Web Security Service

Minimizing Management Complexity

Webroot® minimizes management complexity, while improving security, user visibility and flexible policy controls. A simple and intuitive cloud-based management console makes administration and enforcement of granular web security and web filtering policies completely straightforward.

Administrators may securely access the console from anywhere using a web browser for all operational tasks, including service configuration, deployment, policy management, and reporting. They can also grant full roles-based access—with easily customized permissions—to allow the direct access by Legal, HR and other non-IT staff.

IT now provides a service to HR that enforces corporate web usage policies via website category blocking… From a corporate risk perspective, there are just certain types of Web sites we do not want people visiting… These days there is so much risk involved from an HR and Legal perspective that Web filtering must be part of your basic toolkit.

STREAMLINING MANAGEMENT »

The Internet has become essential for accessing business-related applications. Combined with the dramatic growth in remote access, home working and the use of multiple types of devices, this ubiquitous access is causing headaches for IT. First and foremost, administrators much protect users and networks from dramatically increased risks of infections. At the same time they must consistently enforce acceptable web usage policies. And they must achieve both without hampering the productivity and competitive benefits of the Internet.

The cloud-based Webroot approach to web security offers a solution to these sometimes needs. It provides global user visibility regardless of location and ease of management—without slowing web performance by forcing users to connect via a VPN.

The cloud-based service approach further eliminates the excessive cost of having to deploy hardware and software onsite at every office location, while streamlining management with a web-based console.

DELIVERING GRANULAR CONTROL »

The benefits of the Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service extend beyond malware protection, adding the ability to filter content entering and leaving your organization. It enables control at the individual user level through URL filtering that can restrict the categories of web sites a user may or may not visit. Granular control makes it possible to enforce policy flexible usage policies. These can include quotas how much time a user is allowed to visit certain categories of websites, or what time during the day to allow access. For added flexibility, administrators can restrict access to certain web sites but allow users to override that policy.

ELIMINATING ON-PREMISE SUPPORT »

A Cloud-based security does away with on-premise hardware or software, as well as operational maintenance such as security updates, patching and hardware support. It also eliminates the need to budget for high availability or disaster recovery, as they are integral features of a cloud-based solution.

As part of a managed service, Webroot provides a comprehensive Service Level Agreement (SLA). It covers service uptime, known virus and spyware detection, response times in the event of service failures, and time to get a policy enforced. The Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service offers the best standard SLA and Support response time in the security industry.

AUTOMATING MANAGEMENT REPORTS »

Web usage can involve HR, Legal, and Compliance disciplinary actions. This makes it critical to keep full logs of all web visits and times the users have visited sites, as well as audit logs covering activities of administrators using the management console. The Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service does both, and unlike other web security services these logs are instantly available for the preceding twelve months, eliminating delays to reporting or investigations.

Reporting in the Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service console enables managers as well as IT and other departments to see and understand users’ web behavior. Automation of reporting also minimizes administrative time.
