This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as: • Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers • More comprehensive signature and URL database • Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with: • 100% protection against known viruses • Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database • Extended protection for smartphones and tablets • Simplified web-based management

This white paper describes how new threats have stretched the capabilities of “fat client” security architectures to the limit, making it impractical to keep endpoints updated with signatures for all the new viruses. It discusses how a revolutionary approach is making traditional antivirus obsolete by replacing bloated clients and large signature downloads with: • Cloud/client architecture • Journaling and rollback • Behavioral recognition of malware These improve performance and effectively address the new threat environment, which includes protecting against zero day threats.

This infographic gives a quick visual representation of some of the key findings of a recent Webroot research on web security in the US and UK. As cybercriminals increasingly exploit vulnerabilities in mobile browsers and apps, companies with mobile workforces face new challenges in protecting users and critical data. And the impacts of failing to protect against mobile browsing threats can be severe. The infographic also gives a checklist of things you can do to reduce the risks. Among the key points: • 50% of companies in the US estimate that web-borne attacks cost from $25,000 to $1 million in 2012. • 90% of respondents agree that managing the security of remote users is challenging • 50% of firms with remote workers had a website compromised

Traditional endpoint security has failed to keep up with today’s threats and is exposing organizations to unacceptable levels of risk. It’s time for smarter, next-generation malware prevention to replace or supplement traditional defenses. New approaches to malware can wrest back control and give security administrators greater visibility and control over their endpoints at a lower cost than traditional solutions. This paper looks at the endpoint threats organizations are facing, the means to combat those threats, and why next-generation, cloud-driven protection offers the smartest way to prevent endpoint malware infections.

Seeing traditional security software become too big and too much of a burden on endpoint devices, networks and IT staff, Webroot decided to start fresh. We built a new type of security software that completely does away with old-school approaches like signature downloads, the need for constant updates and big footprint client software. The result is Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection, the fastest, least disruptive and most effective endpoint protection - ever.

The old canon of long-lived viruses with random targets created by hacktivists for fame or nuisance has given way to a new generation zeroday/hour threats from organized criminals, with hand-picked targets and specific, malicious intent. In mid-2014, on a daily basis, Webroot saw 25,000 new malicious URLs, 777,000 new unknown files, many of which are malicious, and 1,000 new phishing sites. In the face of such exponential growth, traditional, reactive security can’t hope to keep up. Not only is the volume of unknown threats overwhelming existing security solutions, but the unique characteristics of unknown threats are also making it difficult for traditional security to catch them.

The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection. Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organization’s network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and land with the victim’s infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victim’s business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the
