Quarterly Threat Trends

For vendors in the security industry, enterprises, and partners

News about threats can’t wait. In our quarterly threat trends updates, we provide Webroot’s insights into the latest threats, relevant news, industry reports, and information to help you stay ahead of modern malware.

A note from our new CEO, Mohamad Ali

Greetings to all those interested in Webroot’s threat landscape insights.  As the CEO of Carbonite, I’m proud to share that the acquisition of Webroot has closed.  

As a combined company, Webroot and Carbonite will continue to deliver highly effective threat intelligence services that security providers, enterprises and partners incorporate into their solutions to secure users and gain a competitive advantage.  Over 90 leading firms rely on Webroot today, and I am dedicated to growing that impressive roster.  

At the core of our solutions is an unique platform leveraging the cloud and machine learning to predict and block threats in real time.  We will continue to invest in the Webroot platform, which uses 6th-generation machine learning to analyze over 500 billion data objects every day in the IPV4 and in-use IPV6 space.  We’ll also continue to enhance our account management and support capabilities, to ensure that our threat intelligence services can be implemented quickly and effectively to deliver measurable results.

If you’re a partner today, you will see us continue to expand the cutting-edge threat intelligence services you’ve come to expect from Webroot. If you are not yet a partner, we hope you’ll consider working with us.

Enjoy this edition of Quarterly Threat Trends!
