Webroot Introduces a Smarter Way to Adopt Endpoint and Mobile Protection with Innovative User-Based Pricing | Webroot

New Approach Helps Enterprises and Strategic Partners Easily Deploy Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ Business Solutions Licensed by the User, on any Device

BROOMFIELD, CO - March 12, 2013

Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, today launched Webroot SecureAnywhere Business User Protection Pricing. Unlike traditional fixed per device plans, the new flexible licensing program enables enterprise and service provider customers to leverage a user-based licensing model. Companies can now quickly and easily deploy Webroot SecureAnywhere endpoint and mobile protection services with a simple, straightforward licensing model that protects users across endpoints, mobile devices and physical servers and virtual servers—all in a single, user-based license to keep companies secure, anywhere.

Mobile devices are quickly becoming the security perimeter for the business network thanks in large part to the rise of the BYOD (bring your own device), which is responsible for doubling or even tripling the number of devices per user. With the constantly changing IT environment, guessing how many devices are in your infrastructure at any given moment is creating new IT challenges. When it comes to security, companies should not have to worry about tracking the number of devices on their network and instead should focus on what matters most—running their business.

Webroot SecureAnywhere Business User Protection Pricing allows businesses to leverage Webroot's innovative portfolio of SecureAnywhere endpoint and mobile protection solutions, powered by the world's most comprehensive cloud-based security intelligence and analysis engine. Unlike traditional security solutions, Webroot's security intelligence immediately protects all users against new threats, does not disrupt productivity and simplifies management. With Webroot's security cloud, users are protected anywhere and avoid the hassle of constant signature threat updates. The new flexible licensing program will enable companies to accelerate the delivery of SecureAnywhere solutions with a single license key, lower the cost of security operation, and provide a clear path to implementation.

Webroot SecureAnywhere Business User Protection Pricing provides:

  • Simplicity: Stop counting devices and secure users on any device.
  • Flexibility: Allow IT infrastructure and endpoints to expand and contract as the business needs change.
  • Cost Savings: Licensing solution that accounts the daily changes without consuming resources.
  • Assurance: Peace of mind that users are always protected.

"Webroot SecureAnywhere is the most innovative endpoint technology solution introduced into the marketplace in over a decade. We are augmenting our disruptive technology with an equally disruptive user-based pricing approach that will greatly benefit customers, service providers and strategic channel partners," said Jeff Santelices, vice president of Webroot Worldwide Demand Fulfillment. "The economics behind the user-based pricing model combined with our performance and efficacy will make the decision to standardize on Webroot SecureAnywhere straightforward. We fully expect the generous partner margins incorporated into the program to be a major incentive for convincing the channel to displace incumbent endpoint alternatives."

Webroot SecureAnywhere Business User Protection is available to new customers, renewing endpoint protection customers and endpoint customers who want to upgrade or add mobile protection from March 12, 2013 to June 30, 2013.
