Broomfield, CO, USA and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - December 5, 2013

Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, today announced expansion into Malaysia with the addition of Agile Network to its global network of distributors. Agile Networks is complimenting its product portfolio with Webroot SecureAnywhere® solutions for consumer and business to help its customers benefit from improved malware protection, system performance and overall productivity.

Agile Network founder KaiJern Lau is a former Technical Director for Panda Security, and an expert in endpoint security technology. He understands the challenges of poor efficacy, slow performance, and complex management often associated with traditional endpoint security products. After hearing these complaints from his customers, Lau sought out the best solution available and selected Webroot SecureAnywhere Business- Endpoint Protection for its small, high performance agent, cloud-based threat detection which eliminates the need for signature updates and patches, and easy, web-based management which enables control of endpoints inside and outside the corporate firewall.

“Webroot designed a groundbreaking method to protect both enterprise users and consumers,” said KaiJern Lau, founder and CEO of Agile Network. “Webroot’s cloud-based security model is truly ahead of the curve, gathering threat intelligence from around the world to provide an exceptional level of protection for every customer. This new approach to security simply makes sense and we’re thrilled with the results.”

“Agile Networks was selected as a key partner based on its sole focus on IT security solutions and broad network of reseller partners across the region,” said Crispin Kerr, managing director of Webroot Asia-Pacific. "Demand for Webroot products and services is growing very quickly around the world and we look forward to working with Agile Networks and their customers as we expand across Southeast Asia.”
