This category used to be for makers of anti-virus software, but with next-generation security systems popping up all over we decided to turn it into a general endpoint protection award. Webroot Inc. took first prize handily, but the real story here is VIPRE Security slipping past the much bigger and better-known Symantec Corp. to grab the silver honors.
Webroot, an OpenText company, harnesses the cloud and artificial intelligence to provide comprehensive cyber resilience solutions for businesses, individuals, and managed service providers.
Cyber resilience means being able to stay up and running, no matter what the internet throws at you or your clients. But as cybercriminals focus on stealing data and causing disruption, small and medium-sized businesses—who often have weaker defenses and not enough resources to resolve cyber issues—have become prime targets. With advanced threats like ransomware, polymorphic malware, and malicious scripts, traditional blocking solutions are no longer enough.
That’s why Webroot provides next-generation, cloud-based endpoint protection, network protection, and security awareness training solutions purpose built to help managed service providers strengthen their clients’ resilience against cyberattacks.
