Webroot Expands Continuum Partnership with Integration of Webroot® SecureAnywhere® DNS Protection

Integration Provides MSPs with Enhanced Visibility to Stop 88 Percent of Web-Borne Malware at the Network Perimeter

BROOMFIELD - November 6, 2018

Webroot, the Smarter Cybersecurity® company, expanded its partnership with Continuum, the service-enabled technology platform that enables managed service providers (MSPs) to scale rapidly and profitably. Now, Webroot SecureAnywhere® DNS Protection is seamlessly integrated within Continuum Security Profile & Protect service, providing granular internet filtering capabilities that protect against malicious websites, provide real-time user access reports and give MSPs the power to set tamperproof web access policies.

Many MSPs offer protection against inbound cyber-attacks to their customers. However, until recently, they were not able to offer visibility or control over all of the traffic leaving their network for the internet. Webroot SecureAnywhere DNS Protection provides essential prevention, protection and visibility for all outbound network traffic, significantly reducing previously unseen malicious threats and infectious responses from the internet.
