Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, has signed a new partnership agreement with InsightCloud, a cloud solution service center operated by Insight Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSIT), a leading technology provider of hardware, software and service solutions. The agreement will enable Insight to deliver Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ Business – Endpoint Protection to its customers across the European market.
"InsightCloud is thrilled to begin offering Webroot SecureAnywhere Business - Endpoint Protection to our customers across EMEA," said Mark Green, EMEA e-commerce and cloud director at InsightCloud. "We've been looking for the right cloud-based endpoint protection to add to the solution set we extend to our small and midsized business customers, and we believe we've found a great fit with Webroot. The product's size and speed offer significant resource and productivity benefits to our customers, and its behavior-based detection performed in the cloud will keep threats from reaching their systems. We look forward to expanding our relationship with Webroot throughout 2012 and beyond."
Richard Daly, EMEA Channel Manager at Webroot, said, "Webroot is excited to join forces with Insight to help transform the way security is delivered to organizations. With this new partnership, we have extended our platform for delivering increased productivity and cost-savings to small-to-medium-sized enterprises across Europe."
Webroot SecureAnywhere – Endpoint Protection was launched as the flagship product in Webroot's business portfolio in early 2012. The solution leverages cloud-based antimalware technologies to identify new threats more effectively and with fewer resource requirements* than traditional endpoint protection offerings.
Key benefits include:
- More effective protection: Rather than relying on signatures that can consume network bandwidth and leave users exposed to new threats, Webroot leverages a cloud-based intelligence network to analyze every file that tries to run on a computer. When a new threat is identified, every Webroot customer is protected within seconds.
- Superior performance: Webroot SecureAnywhere – Endpoint Protection installs in less than 6 seconds – 42 times faster than the average competitor*. It uses 12MB of memory during its initial scan, which is less than 10% of the memory needed by the average traditional security tool. Its system scan, which searches the system for rootkits and complex threats, takes less than 2 minutes on average.*
- Easier manageability: IT managers no longer need to spend time and resources performing intrusive scans and continuous signature updating, patching, and reimaging. They can also manage every aspect of their endpoint protection through a single web-based console that is accessible from anywhere.
Webroot SecureAnywhere – Endpoint Protection is available through Insight's sales and technical service specialists at 0800 333 333 or online at www.insightcloud.com. To learn more about partnering with Webroot, visit www.webroot.com/partners.
