Webroot delivers business edition of SecureAnywhere

Share this article:

Webroot has launched the business edition of its SecureAnywhere product to offer cloud-based protection for endpoints.

Following the launch of the consumer edition in October 2011, the company said that SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection includes behaviour-based threat analysis to eliminate the need for signatures, as well as offline protection for machines inside or outside the corporate firewall.

Also, an identity and privacy shield hardens the operating system and browser to prevent loss of intellectual property through hijacks, keyloggers and screen-scrapers. It also includes a rollback feature to eliminate the need to re-image an infected computer.

From a management perspective, it offers a centralised endpoint management console, centralised policy control and can be run as a stand-alone, or second, layer of protection.

Sean Lamberton, divisional IT manager at Gladedale Group, said: “SecureAnywhere – Endpoint Protection scans our machines in a fraction of the time it used to take before we implemented it. Installation was quick as well as straightforward to deploy across our organisation. The machines appear instantly in the online console.

“The console is very easy to navigate and is very quick to browse, giving visibility of all systems quickly with a lot of customised features.”
