Security vendor Webroot has teamed up with Greater Intell, a developer of mobile applications, systems management software, and cloud systems, to integrate Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection with Kaseya VSA. The combination integrates the cloud-driven protection features of Webroot into the Kaseya VSA platform, enabling enterprises and managed service providers to deliver next-generation endpoint security in a single, unified solution.
“We’re very pleased to be partnering with Greater Intell to offer the Kaseya community more value from their existing investment,” says Charlie Tomeo, vice president of channel and technical sales at Webroot. “Kaseya’s industry-leading remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform has fostered a loyal and rapidly-growing following within the enterprise and MSP ecosystems. These customers recognize that endpoint security is challenging today and that they need next generation defenses to protect their users and their company data from cyberattacks. With Webroot’s proven next-generation endpoint protection, both internal security teams and external managed services organizations will be able to offer better protection and performance, and also increase operating margins by significantly reducing the complexities and inefficiencies associated with managing a traditional security solution.”
The cloud-based Webroot management console requires no on-premise servers, and endpoints can be managed and remediated remotely from any location. The Webroot agent can be installed remotely on a managed endpoint in less than a minute, states the company, shortening the time normally required to deploy a new security solution from weeks to minutes. Webroot also features journaling and rollback remediation capabilities, saving customers time and money by greatly reducing the need to reimage infected machines.
In support of the integration, Greater Intell created a customized plug-in currently available as a single executable.
The Webroot integration is now available for the Kaseya VSA platform. Later this year, the company also plans to release a version of the plug-in for Kaseya Cloud.
