Webroot and Xari Group Partner to Deliver Managed Web Security Service for Business

Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ with Remote Monitoring and Management Provides Real-time Antivirus Protection and Reduces IT Workflow

BROOMFIELD, CO - March 20, 2013

Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, today announced a new partnership agreement with Australian-based managed service provider Xari Group. The agreement will see Webroot® SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection deployed in conjunction with LabTech remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform to create a complete cloud-based managed antivirus solution that will simplify business endpoint security, lower overhead costs, increase network administrator efficiency, and significantly reduce the rate and impact of both known and unknown malware infection.

The partnership enables Xari Group to efficiently administer customer updates and address potential breaches using Webroot's unique cloud-based architecture that provides instant protection of all users and endpoint devices through its blazingly fast and smart cloud-connected security agents. The agents immediately protect businesses from new threats by extending their network protection to wherever users are located by linking them to the world's most powerful cloud-based security intelligence engine.

Unlike traditional security solutions, Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection installs in seconds, scans in less than two minutes, and never requires security updates or signature database downloads which consume network bandwidth and leave users exposed. Xari Group will also utilize Webroot's rapid rollback functionality to undo collateral damage from malware infections, reducing the need for network administrators to reimage machines and minimizing the impact on company staff and its clients.

"After a thorough assessment of our managed antivirus workflow, Xari Group chose Webroot for its superior speed and flexibility, its small install and scanning footprint as well as the revolutionary 'Rapid Rollback' functionality that greatly reduces the need for re-imaging and remediation," said Aaron Hawke, Xari Group CEO. "By implementing Webroot SecureAnywhere we expect to quickly see a significant reduction in the amount of time our staff spend addressing potential infections and in turn this will provide our customers with an even more seamless managed antivirus experience than our previous solution enabled us to."

"We're excited that Xari Group has joined our strategic channel program under this new agreement, and we see immense potential in this collaboration," commented Crispin Kerr, Webroot Managing Director APAC. "The industry leading features of Webroot Secure Anywhere Business – Endpoint Protection with LabTech RMM complement the needs of managed service providers perfectly, including Xari Group, to enhance and refine their outstanding managed antivirus service offerings into the future, as well as deliver better customer experiences in the process."
