Webroot Launches Enterprise Security Products

Webroot Software announced the release of Webroot AntiSpyware Corporate Edition with AntiVirus

BOULDER, Colo. -- Webroot Software, Inc., a leading provider of security software for the consumer, enterprise and SMB markets, today announced the release of Webroot® AntiSpyware Corporate Edition with AntiVirus. In addition to compatibility with the Windows Vista™ operating system, key new features include Active Directory integration for simplified network deployment, Behavioral Genotype protection from Sophos® which analyzes viral behavior to prevent it from executing, and the latest updates to Webroot’s award-winning antispyware technology.

Spyware has rapidly climbed the list of enterprise security threats and now ranks as one of the leading threats facing corporations today. According to Gartner, "By the end of 2007, 75 percent of enterprises will be infected with undetected, financially motivated, targeted malware that evaded their traditional perimeter and host defenses." (Source: Gartner, Inc., Gartner's Top Predictions for IT Organizations and Users, 2007 and Beyond, by Neil MacDonald et al, December 1, 2006.)

“Spyware is growing and changing as the financial motivation has brought an entirely new level of sophistication. Additionally, virus outbreaks continue to cause significant financial damage while becoming harder to detect through established methods. Together they are causing increasing network downtime, decreased productivity, mounting legal and compliance fees and significant brand destruction due to data loss,” said Peter Watkins, CEO, Webroot Software. “Today’s enterprises need a simpler solution to combat these increasingly complex threats. We have improved our existing solutions by seamlessly integrating best of breed antispyware and antivirus at the desktop, extending their ability to marginalize unknown threats with HIPS and Behavioral Genotyping, and by streamlining deployment with Active Directory Integration.”
