You’ve heard about how today’s online threats have become too sophisticated for “traditional” threat detection. These new malware attacks are far too frequent, benign-looking until activated, and designed to bypass traditional signatures and the guesswork of heuristics.
So, by the time the threat is identified and your security technology is updated, it’s too late—the damage has been done. You are also up against transient Web-based threats that appear for only hours or days. Blacklisting becomes obsolete the moment it is deployed. And relying on whitelisting can be too restrictive. So what are your options?
Cloud-based prevention collectively leverages the intelligence seen from each individual endpoint; examines the actions of individual files, IP or URLs; assesses the risks; and then takes action. And cloud-based intelligence means you’re not relying on the current threat protection on other endpoints. Prevention is now always up-to-date and all users are instantly protected as soon as new threats appear. This collective prevention minimizes IT workload by eliminating the need to worry about definition updates, or whether your remote workers’ protection is up-to-date.
Cloud-based Webroot threat prevention technologies—that power our award-winning endpoint security products—are changing the game back in favor of the ‘good guys.’ Attend this session and find out more about what’s behind the first true innovation for endpoint protection in 20 years.
