Security Intelligence Solutions for Mobile Technology Providers" align="left" hspace="10" width="300">
Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, today announced the availability of a portfolio of internet security solutions that give mobile technology providers - from carriers to device manufacturers to mobile device management (MDM) companies - easily deployable and cost-effective services to make security an integral part of their own offerings. The Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite draws on the power of the Webroot Intelligence Network (WIN), the world's most comprehensive cloud-based security intelligence service, to deliver the most advanced threat defense to tablets and smartphones.
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 award-winning anti-malware and anti-virus protection, web filtering, app reputation and secure browsing capabilities. A key benefit to the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite is that mobile technology partners can offer their customers a highly sophisticated and comprehensive mobile application reputation database, which has analyzed and categorized more than 2.5 million mobile applications across the Android and iOS platforms to identify and help block potentially harmful apps.
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 proprietary survey of business security decision-makers that an overwhelming 82 percent of respondents believe that 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. Cybercrime on mobile devices is already high and accelerating, and as many as 10 percent of mobile applications contain either malicious or undesirable behaviors. Companies across the mobile ecosystem are realizing the very real threat mobile malware presents to their customers, and they are seeking to provide more sophisticated features and services to protect them.
