Webroot Launches Integrated Suite of Security Intelligence Solutions for Mobile Technology Providers

Proven Anti-malware, Web Filtering and App Reputation Offerings Help Mobile Partners Build More Secure Solutions to Combat Rising Cybercrime

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, today announced the availability of a portfolio of internet security solutions that give mobile technology providers – from carriers to device manufacturers to mobile device management (MDM) companies – easily deployable and cost-effective services to make security an integral part of their own offerings. The Webroot® Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite draws on the power of the Webroot Intelligence Network (WIN), the world's most comprehensive cloud-based security intelligence service, to deliver the most advanced threat defense to tablets and smartphones.

Using the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite, Webroot's mobile solution partners can use SDKs and direct APIs to integrate into their own products with Webroot's award-winning anti-malware and anti-virus protection, web filtering, app reputation and secure browsing capabilities. A key benefit to the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite is that mobile technology partners can offer their customers a highly sophisticated and comprehensive mobile application reputation database, which has analyzed and categorized more than 2.5 million mobile applications across the Android and iOS platforms to identify and help block potentially harmful apps.

With the BYOD (bring your own device) trend on the rise, mobile devices are becoming the security perimeter for the business and personal network. Webroot found in a recent proprietary survey of business security decision-makers that an overwhelming 82 percent of respondents believe that mobile devices create a high security risk within the corporate environment. More than half of those surveyed reported that mobile threats had reduced employee productivity and disrupted business activities. Cybercrime on mobile devices is already high and accelerating, and as many as 10 percent of mobile applications contain either malicious or undesirable behaviors. Companies across the mobile ecosystem are realizing the very real threat mobile malware presents to their customers, and they are seeking to provide more sophisticated features and services to protect them.

Two strategic partners who are enhancing their enterprise mobility solutions integrating facets of the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite are SOTI and NEC. SOTI has incorporated Webroot's security intelligence into the recently launched MobiControl V10, its next generation, enterprise-grade MDM solution. In addition, Webroot partnered with NEC to develop NEC Mobile Security Pro, a comprehensive cloud-based security offering.

"By partnering with Webroot, we were able to provide a more secure and comprehensive solution that could seamlessly embed into our existing MDM product," said Takashi Ohtsuki, General Manager of Carrier Network Business Unit, NEC Corporation. "NEC Mobile Security Pro has seen marked success and enables an all-in-one security service for the rapidly expanding mobile sector in a package that is easy to install and offers a lightweight, user-friendly business environment for our customers."

"As threats continue to evolve and mobility becomes a key priority for businesses, our partners must make security a core element in their product strategies," said Mark Hanson, VP of Strategic Alliance at Webroot. "The Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite will provide partners with a comprehensive portfolio of security solutions and management tools to leverage business opportunities and drive more revenue through the mobile ecosystem. We are pleased that we are seeing strong adoption of our Security Intelligence solutions, particularly with two strong partners, SOTI and NEC, leading the way."

Webroot will be demonstrating its mobile security intelligence solutions at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013, held in Barcelona in booth #8.1H47, February 25 through 28, 2013. To learn how your organization can partner with Webroot, visit http://www.webroot.com/En_US/partners.html.
