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.

  • 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.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices.

With the proliferation of both SQL and NoSQL databases, organizations can now target specific fit-for-purpose database tools for their different application needs regarding scalability, ease of use, ACID support, etc. Platform as a Service offerings make this even easier now, enabling developers to roll out their own database infrastructure in minutes with minimal management overhead. However, this same amount of flexibility also comes with the challenges of picking the right tool, on the right ...
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 ...
"Splunk basically takes machine data and we make it usable, valuable and accessible for everyone.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
