Webroot® eSeminar: How to Improve Endpoint Security with a Cloud-Based Approach | Endpoint Security

Engineering Firm Regained Time, Improved Threat Detection by Eliminating Signature Updates

BROOMFIELD, CO - September 4, 2012

Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, will show how eliminating signature updates on endpoint clients improves productivity and reduces risk in an upcoming live eSeminar on Thursday, September 6 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.

Painfully slow security scans and weak protection led Ty Smith, IT administrator at offshore engineering firm Doris, Inc. to take a new approach to endpoint security with Webroot. Attendees will hear how Smith gave back hundreds of hours to both PC users and IT staff while improving threat protection.

Frost & Sullivan's Stratecast analyst Michael Suby is well-aware of the drawbacks to the aging signature-based model of endpoint security. Suby will present new research on how cloud-based endpoint security solutions overcome pain points that plague traditional security solutions.

Lastly, Webroot's Patrick Kennedy will speak in more detail about Doris' next-generation solution.
