Webroot teams up with Greater Intell for next-gen endpoint security

14 Apr 16

Webroot has partnered up with Greater Intell in a deal the security company says will help address growing demand for next-generation security in Australia.

The new strategic partnership with Greater Intell – a provider of software products and professional services for IT management platforms – sees Webroot’s SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection integrated into the Kaseya VSA platform to enable managed service providers and enterprises to provide next-generation endpoint security in a single unified solution.

Robbie Upcroft, Webroot APAC managing director, says with cybercrime on the rise, businesses big and small ‘could be doing more to protect themselves’.

“According to Webroot’s latest SMB threat intelligence report, 45% of SMBs in Australia are not confident in their endpoint security system – leaving themselves wide open to increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks or phishing scams and zero-day attacks,” Upcroft says.

He says endpoint security has traditionally come with issues, such as poor efficacy, poor remediation and higher operational cost.

“By integrating Webroot’s SecureAnywhere  Business Endpoint Protection with the Kaseya VSA platform, through this new partnership with Greater Intell, we can now provide the Kaseya community, MSPs and SMBs with a single, effective offer that can save businesses time and money.”

Corey Mandell, Greater Intell founder and CTO, says many managed service providers had told the vendor that Webroot integration with Kaseya was ‘a top priority for them’.

“We expect strong growth and are pleased to be partnering with market leaders like Webroot,” Mandell says.
