Webroot Launches Worldwide Certification Program for SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection

Program Includes Best Practices and Tools to Help Partners Sell to and Support Customers

BROOMFIELD, Colo. - July 24, 2017

Webroot, the market leader in endpoint security, network security, and threat intelligence, launched the Webroot Certification Program that covers key feature differentiators, deployment best practices, cybersecurity management, and basic troubleshooting techniques for SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection. The program enables the sales and technical teams at managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), and other distributor partners to better sell and support the solution, as well as streamline and enhance their IT services business.

Key Facts:

  • There are two tracks for the free, self-paced Certification Program: one for sales professionals and one for technicians. Both will increase a partner's knowledge of Webroot’s endpoint security solution and cover key trends in the security market.
  • Under 1 hour in length, the sales track provides an overview of key product features and differentiators of SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection to help partners master the intricacies and market differentiators of the product.
  • Under 2 hours in length, the technical track provides best practices for deploying and supporting SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection. It will help partners’ technical teams deploy, manage, and troubleshoot customer sites more efficiently.
  • Partners will gain access to additional tools and resources, such as the Webroot IP test tool, which helps reduce troubleshooting time.
  • When at least one employee attains a sales certification and one attains a technical certification, partners can distinguish themselves as a Webroot Certified Partner.
  • If interested, partners can contact their sales representative or sign up online.

About SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection:

  • Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection offers a unique blend of layered, multi-vector protection to secure users and devices against today’s attacks.
  • It covers threats that come from email, web browsing, file attachments, hyperlinks, display ads, social media apps, and connected devices like USB drives, as well as other blended threats with the potential to deliver malicious payloads.
  • Powered by industry leading cloud-based threat intelligence platform, Webroot solutions combine the latest real-time intelligence from Webroot BrightCloud® services with advanced machine learning and behavior-based heuristics. Using an always up-to-date, cloud-based technology, Webroot is able to detect, analyze, categorize, score, and highly accurately predict the threats each endpoint is experiencing in real time.
  • Today’s multi-vector attacks are designed to exploit the blind spots of conventional signature-based security, allowing malware to infiltrate systems undetected. Traditional endpoint security vendors can only protect end users once the threat is known, and are limited to a single moment to choose whether what they have detected is bad, or can be allowed to execute.
  • Webroot offers multiple methods during multiple attack stages to stop threats across multiple vectors.
