Webroot Announces Release of Updates to Webroot SecureAnywhere(R) Portfolio for Individuals and Families
Oct 7 13
Webroot announced the release of the updates to their Webroot SecureAnywhere(R) portfolio for individuals and families. The company's latest release brings customers even better protection with new detection technology to block emerging malware and phishing attacks more quickly, a completely redesigned interface for easy monitoring and control, and extended platform support to unify protection across PCs, Macs, and Android(TM) and Apple(R) iOS(R) devices. Other enhancements include web content filtering, an expanded management website, advanced user authentication, and integration of the Webroot Backup & Sync with the Microsoft Windows(R) Explorer environment. Cloud-based Webroot SecureAnywhere threat detection offers connected consumers an alternative to the traditional security solutions that have proven ineffective against today's malware, and caused significant performance slow-downs on the devices they were meant to protect. Webroot SecureAnywhere installs in seconds and scans most devices in less than two minutes, and its cloud-based threat detection architecture means there are no security updates or patches to download. All users are protected against the latest threats from the moment they are discovered -- anywhere in the world. The latest update to Webroot SecureAnywhere protection introduces real-time anti-phishing technology to quickly analyze a website when it is accessed by a user and automatically block it if it is a phishing site. The company has introduced a powerful new threat detection engine called Infrared. Utilizing data from the Webroot(R) Intelligence Network(TM) cloud security service, Webroot Infrared analyzes unknown files by correlating their behavior and origin, and then makes an assessment of the associated risk before the file is allowed to run. The Webroot Infrared engine also customizes protection to the individual device based on a combined analysis of the operating system, applications, and prior threats which have been observed. Webroot research has shown an increase in households with a mix of PCs, Macs, and Android and iOS tablets and smartphones, and all of the updated Webroot SecureAnywhere solutions include multi-platform protection with a single license. In addition, Mac users now have more advanced protection with the addition of System Analyzer and Backup & Sync. Further, these multi-platform households now have a consistent user interface for their Windows and Mac security, and can manage both platforms from within the online Webroot SecureAnywhere management environment. Key features of Webroot SecureAnywhere consumer protection: Set it and forget it -- continuous protection without interruptions or slowdowns. Real-time anti-phishing identifies and blocks fake websites that trick user into entering users personal information. Warns user about infected websites before user visits them; Protects and simplifies managing passwords -- user remembers just one. Automatically backs up photos and files with up to 25GB of online storage user can access from all users devices. Social network protection including Facebook and Twitter. Advanced protection for tablets and smartphones. Analyzes devices and operating systems to detect system issues. Wipes away all traces of online activity and makes deleted files unrecoverable.
