“We cannot be more pleased with Webroot who provided greater insights into URL categories with few false positives. Our customers can now reduce their risk of client-side attacks and improve employee productivity.”

“Policies can be created around content type and reputation to block access to malicious and unwanted websites. BrightCloud adds a layer of protection by guarding against categories that often host malicious content, including known spam URLs, malware sites, phishing, proxy avoidance and anonymizers, spyware/adware, and botnets.”

“Webroot delivers value for our clients that require global language support, and also for clients that cannot permit cloud lookups, such as government entities. BrightCloud Threat Intelligence supports a local-only mode that does not require cloud lookups, and offers policy enforcement apart from security via their Web Classification service.”
