Business Driver: Webroot’s Threat Intelligence and SecureAnywhere


In spite of all the hype and decades of combat, endpoints still pose a grave threat to maintaining a secure business environment. Endpoints (PC’s, tablets, laptops and mobiles) need constant protection from evolving threats that originate in the ether. One of the most important differentiators that management must consider is how security reconnaissance improves their security posture. The term used by infosec professionals is “threat intelligence” – information gathered in real-time that alerts stakeholders to new threats and concurrently automates the implementation of new safeguards to repel attacks. Modern cybersecurity is dynamic and must be proactive to keep ahead of the threats posed by internet-based attackers.
