SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA Conference - Webroot, the leader in cloud based internet security as a service, today announced the release of BrightCloud® Security Services and BreachLogic(TM) Endpoint Agent.

When combating targeted attacks, one of the primary issues businesses face is an inability to correlate anomalous events in their IT environment with current, accurate, and actionable security intelligence, making it difficult to determine if and where a threat exists. Because malware is typically a component of these advanced attacks, it is also critical that businesses understand the behavior of applications running on their endpoints, and the reputation of files entering their environment. Webroot BrightCloud® Security Services and the BreachLogic

(TM) Endpoint Agent address these crucial needs.

"At Webroot, we reject the prevailing notion that organizations cannot be protected from attacks on their endpoint devices. We believe that most internet security problems can be addressed if the business can apply comprehensive security knowledge at that moment of truth when they are faced with a threat,"

said Mike Malloy, executive vice president of products and strategy at Webroot.

"Both BrightCloud Security Services and the BreachLogic Endpoint Agent are designed to enable businesses to take action more quickly by combining our vast threat intelligence and continuous monitoring of events in their environment."

Actionable Internet, File, and Mobile Threat Intelligence

BrightCloud Security Services redefine online threat intelligence. The suite of cloud-based services, powered by an advanced, self-learning threat analysis platform that continuously scans the internet, is designed to help enterprises and OEM technology partners strengthen their security technology with up-to-date, accurate and actionable threat intelligence. The enhanced suite includes a new File Reputation Service and an enriched contextual database that correlates previously disparate security data points.

Traditional, reactive, list-based security that works by recognizing known threats is powerless to stop modern malware that is purpose-built to attack a single target. Brightcloud Security Services use a new three-dimensional approach threat intelligence to identify and stop these sophisticated threats.

This approach includes:
