Broomfield, CO - January 13, 2015

Webroot, the market leader in cloud-based, real-time internet threat detection, today announced a strategic partnership with INTEC, a software company based in Japan targeting the enterprise market. INTEC is expanding its product portfolio with Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection and Webroot® Financial Services and eCommerce Security to help its business and bank customers benefit from improved malware protection, server access control and multi-device management.

Availability of faster connectivity, the proliferation of mobile devices, and growth in eCommerce and online banking have increased the number of cyber-attacks in Japan and the level of focus on cybersecurity. Getting visibility into the endpoint is a crucial step for enterprises to detect, as well as prevent, fraudulent transactions. The combination of innovative cloud-based threat detection and Web Access Intelligence from Webroot is specifically designed to address the security challenges of businesses and financial institutions.

“For banking and eCommerce providers, maintaining the trust and confidence of customers is critical; so providing the best possible security is paramount,” said Dick Williams, CEO of Webroot. “As a result, enterprises are ramping up internet security efforts and are quickly adopting our cloud-based endpoint protection that provides advanced real-time threat and data protection against malware, phishing attacks and web threats.”

Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection enables INTEC customers to visualize the security status of endpoint device access, and report security data found on users’ computers and provide the customer a risk profile. Webroot Web Access Intelligence empowers the organization to make an informed decision if the online session poses an unacceptable risk to the individual, the online bank, or eCommerce provider. Further, Webroot Financial Services and eCommerce Security allows users to connect to an online session from the device of their choice without the fear of credential compromise and fraud.
