DNA Connect, a leading distributor of security solutions based in Sydney, is expanding its product portfolio with Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection, Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service and Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Mobile Protection to help its business customers benefit from improved malware protection, system performance and overall productivity. As part of the new agreement, DNA Connect is offering new partners and Webroot Elite Partners considerable incentives and up to 10 percent back in reward points. They will also have access to DNA Connect’s marketing team to help them generate business leads.

According to the Webroot® 2015 Threat Brief, an average of nearly 900 phishing attempts are detected per financial institution and over 9,000 attempts are detected per technology company. With such a significant increase in cybersecurity incidents, managed service providers (MSPs) and businesses are ramping up internet security efforts and are quickly adopting cloud-based Webroot security to easily deploy and manage endpoint protection across multiple domains, devices, customers and offices from a single, centralized console in single-pane view.

“Security is an increasing issue in Australia and intelligent cybersecurity solutions from Webroot address it in such a compelling and innovative way that we are really thrilled to offer them to our market,” said Munsoor Khan, Executive Director at DNA Connect. “Unlike traditional security, the SecureAnywhere line installs and scans in seconds and doesn’t need time-consuming security updates or signature database downloads.”

“DNA Connect was selected as a key partner based on its extensive technical background, industry expertise and strong customer base,” said Robbie Upcroft, Managing Director of Webroot Asia-Pacific. "By including our market-leading enterprise-class security solutions in its portfolio, DNA Connect can deliver tremendous value and support to an expansive number of customers. The agreement will also open up significant opportunities for new partnerships across Australia.”

Partnering with companies around the globe, Webroot provides MSPs, resellers, and systems integrators enhanced privacy, performance, and protection through exclusive partner programs.
