Webroot Accelerates Global Reach with Addition of Managed Service Provider Program

RMM Platform Integration Further Extends Webroot Endpoint Security Leadership

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, today announced an expanded Webroot Channel Partner Program that makes it easier and more cost-effective for managed services providers (MSPs) to deliver managed data protection. By offering cloud-based Webroot® SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection security with a host of new technologies from remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform providers including LabTech Software, MSPs can now quickly and efficiently deploy a "single pane of glass" for managing all of their customers' endpoint security.


"Webroot has taken an innovative approach to endpoint security," said Matt Nachtrab, LabTech Software CEO. "The integration of Webroot SecureAnywhere with LabTech RMM is an ideal combination of solutions for our MSP partners."

The IT channel has radically transformed over the past several years, with MSPs becoming one of the preferred approaches to procuring IT services for organizations of all sizes. This new approach to IT spend, combined with the increase in global Internet security threats now requires end-customers to allocate a significant portion of their budget to protect users, monetary assets, data, and intellectual property with a robust endpoint security strategy. In Webroot, MSPs find a partner that helps deliver a highly effective weapon against viruses and malware in an easily-deployable solution that is also simple to manage remotely, and priced competitively.

Traditional endpoint security software is often the root cause for unplanned downtime and performance issues. As a result, many MSPs have been reluctant to add endpoint management to their portfolio of services. By expanding the Webroot Channel Partner Program to MSPs, Webroot is introducing a service that uniquely and appropriately addresses many of the historical challenges that MSPs have faced – allowing them to add this to their portfolio, generate new revenue streams, and maintain margins.  

With Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection, MSPs can now take advantage of RMM providers like LabTech Software to deploy and manage endpoint security across multiple domains, customers and offices from a single, centralized consoles and location in single window view – something no other solution offers. The value to these MSPs includes lowered costs, increased productivity and increased recurring revenue stream.  Webroot supports and delivers the integration of Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection with LabTech Software RMM solution.

"Webroot is the perfect partner for MSPs looking to make endpoint security a profitable portion of their business instead of the loss leader that it is today," said Jeff Santelices, vice president of Webroot Worldwide Demand Fulfillment. "With our advanced cloud security technologies and market-leading network of partners that include LabTech Software, our customers gain exceptional management automation and superior support while being completely protected against advanced threats and disruptions."

Key Webroot MSP Channel Program benefits include:

  • Competitive Advantage - Expanded managed service offerings including a leading endpoint protection provider. Webroot helps MSPs differentiate and grow their service capabilities with enablement, marketing and sales resources.
  • Management Automation – Simplified managed services business with trusted Webroot solutions, integrated seamlessly with RMM platforms, enable MSPs to deliver a "single pane of glass" view for managing endpoint security.
  • Advanced Threat Protection – Cloud-based Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection security provides rapid deployment and scans without ever requiring security updates or signature database downloads which consume network bandwidth and leave users exposed.
  • Improved Availability & Uptime – Purpose built for MSPs, Webroot solutions install and protect in seconds, easily co-exists with current software, and is optimized for virtualized environments.
  • Complete Customer Satisfaction – Webroot's proactive, predictive and intelligent support SLAs enable MSPs to quickly address items before they become issues, thereby reducing costs and delivering improved services and user experiences.

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
