Internet security as a service provider Webroot has rolled out a portfolio of internet security solutions aimed at enabling mobile technology providers to more easily deploy cost-effective security services. Called the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite, the portfolio draws on the power of the Webroot Intelligence Network (WIN), a cloud-based security intelligence service, to deliver an advanced threat defense for tablets and smartphones.
With the BYOD (bring your own device) trend on the rise, mobile devices are becoming the security perimeter for the business and personal network. Webroot found in a recent Webroot survey (PDF) of business security decision-makers that a 82 percent of respondents believe mobile devices create a high-security risk within the corporate environment. More than half of those surveyed reported that mobile threats had reduced employee productivity and disrupted business activities.
Using the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite, Webroot’s mobile solution partners can use SDKs and direct APIs to integrate into their own products with Webroot’s anti-malware and anti-virus protection, Web filtering, app, and secure browsing capabilities.
