Webroot and ConnectWise Expand Partnership to Help Customers Reduce Web Browsing Risks

Jun 7, 2017 - (Newswire)

- Webroot, the market leader in endpoint security, network security, and threat intelligence, announced an expanded partnership with ConnectWise. Now, ConnectWise can sell Webroot SecureAnywhere DNS Protection directly to its global partners. The solution provides granular web-filtering capabilities that protect against malicious websites, provide real-time usage reports, and give managed service providers (MSPs) the power to set global web-access policies to block sites that its client base does not need. SecureAnywhere DNS Protection is easy for partners to manage through the same Global Site Manager console they use for Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection.

About the Partnership:

  • Webroot and ConnectWise have been working together since November 2013.
  • ConnectWise is Webroot's first remote management and monitoring (RMM) partner to sell DNS Protection directly to its MSP partners.
  • Currently, ConnectWise offers its customers SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection and SecureAnywhere Business Mobile Protection.
  • Webroot solutions enable ConnectWise to offer its MSP partners industry-leading cybersecurity that is easy to administer and increases operating margins.

Key Facts:

  • More than 85 percent of malware infections are generated through web browsing. Internet use is a high-risk activity for every business, regardless of size, according to Webroot research.
  • Unmanaged, uncontrolled web access inevitably leads to both endpoint and network infections from ransomware, malware, keyloggers, and more.
  • Purpose-built for MSPs, DNS Protection enables administrators to manage both endpoint and DNS products across their entire client install base via a single management console.
  • Webroot scans the entire IPv4 space and in-use IPv6 addresses to classify over 95 percent of the internet at least three times per day.
  • All Webroot security products and services are powered by the cloud-based Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence Platform, which continually analyzes and classifies over 4 billion IP addresses, 600 million domains, and 27 billion URLs. Additionally, Webroot uncovers at least 25,000 malicious URLs, 6,000 new phishing sites, and over 100,000 new malicious IP addresses per day.
