Business Endpoint Protection
Smarter malware prevention that solves the performance, dwell time
visibility and management issues of your endpoint security
Confidence has never been so low in a key threat prevention technology:
endpoint security. Conventional antivirus protection is struggling to keep
up with today’s threats and attacks. It slows down machines and users
and is complex and resource-intensive.
Now, by unifying innovative SecureAnywhere file pattern and predictive
behavior recognition technology with the almost limitless processing
power of cloud computing, Webroot effectively stops malware and
zero-day threats at the moment of infection. The unique, next-generation
Webroot® approach to malware prevention is more effective and
accountable than any conventional antivirus. You no longer need to rely
on an outmoded detection model that is easily overwhelmed by today’s
malware—a model that yields unknown dwell times and results in
infections only becoming visible long after the endpoint is infected.
Traditional antivirus presents the hassle of ensuring every endpoint has
the latest update. Webroot communicates with the cloud, which means

there are no definition or signature updates to deploy and manage.
As malware detection occurs continuously in real time, performance
issues fade away. Scheduled systems scans are normally around 30
seconds1 and never impact device performance. Virtual desktop and
server environments, plus many embedded operating systems, also see
improved performance.
The world’s smallest and fastest endpoint security client makes
deployment fast and easy. The SecureAnywhere antimalware
architecture happily coexists with other antivirus solutions, with no
need to immediately rip and replace.
SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection is a smarter way to
solve malware prevention and endpoint security performance and
management issues. It provides the protection you need without the
demanding overhead of conventional antivirus.
Data Center
& Remote Users
Uncovering zero-day malware
A feature-rich endpoint protection solution amounts to nothing if it can’t
deliver its key feature: malware prevention. SecureAnywhere is the first
malware prevention technology to report on its own efficacy at detecting
infections and stopping malware. Dwell time reporting gives you visibility
into any infection on any endpoint within your network, showing you when
the infection began and how long it has taken Webroot to stop that threat.
Another factor contributing to the efficacy of SecureAnywhere is its
continuous infection monitoring, journaling and auto-remediation.
If SecureAnywhere cannot immediately categorize new or changed
files and processes as ‘known’ good or ‘known’ bad, then the agent
begins monitoring and journaling all events. If an observed process is
categorized as malicious, then any system changes are reversed and the
endpoint is auto-remediated to its last “known good” state. This extra
layer ensures minimal false positives. If administrators wish to reclassify
an application, they can easily do so via the cloud-based console.

Webroot SecureAnywhere has cloud-based management, which means
no on-premise hardware or software is needed and the console is always
up to date. Webroot offers a standard Site Manager console or our Global
Site Manager console, so you can choose the management features
appropriate to your organization’s needs. The Site Manager console is
perfect for managing anything up to 1,000 endpoints with less-complex
user groupings and only a few different policy types. The Global Site
Manager makes it straightforward to manage up to 100,000 endpoints,
and through its hierarchical management architecture you can easily
control multiple sites and locations. The Global Site Manager also supports
policies at the global and individual site level, plus local site administration
access rights and permissions that are easily managed alongside central
administration of all sites.
This makes Global Site Manager ideal for global and or multi-location
organizations, or if you are a Managed Services Provider administering
numerous customer sites. Cloud-based management with full remote
endpoint administration also makes the delivery of global management
extraordinarily cost-effective compared to conventional antivirus.
The Webroot® Intelligence Network – the most powerful real-time threat analysis engine in the world
At the center of stopping malware on every endpoint using
SecureAnywhere is the Webroot Intelligence Network (WIN). Leveraging
big data analytics and threat intelligence from our users and technology
partners worldwide, WIN identifies threats as they occur. The WIN big
data architecture continuously processes, analyzes, correlates and
contextualizes vast amounts of disparate information while also applying
a patented, fourth-generation machine learning and malicious code
identification system to create predictive behavioral determinations on
malware instantly – with incredibly high accuracy.

Big data processing allows SecureAnywhere to uncover malware as it
attempts to infect an individual user’s endpoint, while simultaneously
protecting all other SecureAnywhere endpoints against the same
attacks. This collective approach to threat intelligence creates a
massive real-time malware detection net that has intimate knowledge
of more than 300 million executables, including their runtime behavioral
characteristics and interactions. This, coupled with another 200+
terabytes of threat data, ensures that Webroot customers are always
protected from both existing and new threats.

capabilities that keep both the user and the device safe.
»» Full visibility of any infection by endpoint
Identity & Privacy Shield
Always Protected and Up-to-date
These shields protect users by assuming the endpoint is already
infected by some completely undetectable malware. They protect
user information and transactional data that could be exposed during
online transactions from specific types of threats, including phishing,
DNS poisoning, keystroke logging, screen grabbing, cookie scraping,
clipboard grabbing, and browser and session hijacking by malicious
software mounting man-in-the-browser or man-in-the-middle
attacks. The Sheilds lock down the OS and browser to protect all user
information and credentials – even shared passwords. Aside from
securing browser activities, the Identity Shield may be extended under
user policy to cover other endpoint applications by adding them to the
Identity Shield protection list, securing those applications.

1 PassMark Software Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection vs. Seven Competitors
(February 2014)
Infrared is a multi-layer defense incorporating several aspects of the
WIN to help thwart threats early on in their lifecycle – often before a
threat researcher sees a single sample. It looks at the reputation of the
websites an individual visits and uses WIN to determine their risk level.
If the user commonly visits low-reputation websites, then the endpoint
goes into a state of heightened awareness and closely interrogates any
new files or processes that are introduced into their system. Infrared also
interprets user behaviors and the overall safety level of the user. So, if a
user is classified as “high risk”, Webroot then dynamically tunes malware
prevention to that user, while preventing false positives for less risky users.
Web Threat Shield
Our Web Threat Shield blocks access to known phishing sites and
malicious domains by leveraging WIN to access the latest security
intelligence on any web site.
Smart Outbound Firewall
In addition to its Shields, Webroot SecureAnywhere has its own “smart”
system-monitoring and application-aware outbound firewall. This
sophisticated firewall protects users both within and outside the corporate
gateway, augmenting the Microsoft Windows® firewall to offer full control
of outbound and inbound connections without adding an unnecessary
drain on endpoint resources. It manages and monitors all outbound
traffic to protect against “phone-home” threats and ensures that only
policy-approved applications communicate with the network. It also
automatically recognizes known good and bad programs, so users aren’t
pestered with pop-ups or forced to make uninformed judgments.
