Webroot® Teams Up With Softwerx to Deliver Cloud-Based Antimalware Business Solution

Broomfield, CO. – May 13, 2014 – Webroot, the market leader in cloud-based, real-time internet threat detection, today announced a partnership agreement with Softwerx, a leading IT services and support company. The agreement will see Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business – Endpoint Protection added to Softwerx’s product portfolio to provide its business customers with real-time protection against new malware threats, market-leading system performance and an easy-to-use, web-based management console. The partnership will also enable Webroot to gain access to Softwerx’s comprehensive business network across the UK.

Unlike traditional security solutions, the cloud-based threat analysis provided by Webroot SecureAnywhere solutions protects users against new threats without need for program patches or threat signature updates. This ensures that Softwerx clients will be protected in real time the moment a new threat is identified anywhere in the world, and reduces the drain on IT productivity and network bandwidth. Because the Webroot solution is so light on system resources and most security scans take less than two minutes, users no longer have to interrupt their work to run a scan, increasing productivity.

“We’ve been involved in the resale of security solutions for many years,” said David Smart, managing director at Softwerx. “What excited us about the Webroot solution was the underlying philosophy and technology in Webroot’s cloud-based security intelligence engine. As an experienced cloud infrastructure specialist, we immediately understood the benefit and the difference, and now our customers do too. It’s very different, it’s very effective and it’s competitively priced.”

“Softwerx is a very knowledgeable valued-added reseller (VAR) that understands the advantages of a cloud-based solution and the unique Webroot offering,” said Charles Tomeo, vice president of worldwide channel and technical sales at Webroot. “We are excited to work with such a dynamic partner that has already completed a number of sales orders, including a deployment for the Internet Watch Foundation– the UK governing body for misuse of the internet.”
