Webroot and SOTI Partner to Provide Superior Security for Today's Mobile Workforce

(Canada Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SOTI Enhances Secure Web Browsing for Enterprise Mobility Deployments with Webroot Security Intelligence BROOMFIELD, Colo., Jan. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, today announced a partnership with SOTI Inc., a world leader in enterprise mobile device management (MDM) solutions. SOTI has incorporated Webroot's security intelligence and secure web browsing capabilities into MobiControl V10, its next generation, enterprise-grade MDM solution, providing customers with unrivaled cloud-based management and performance of anti-malware and antivirus protection for managed mobile devices.

(Logo: The meteoric rise of the mobile workforce presents challenges to organizations that are struggling to secure and manage their enterprise mobility effectively while reducing costs and exposure to risk. According to a survey conducted by Webroot, among smaller companies (250-999 employees), an estimated 22 percent spent 40 or more IT employee hours each month to manage the security of devices, provision devices and replace lost or stolen devices each month, while 40 percent of larger companies (1,000 or more employees) spent 40 or more IT hours each month. In addition, 74 percent of companies are very or extremely concerned about loss of company or customer data via mobile devices and 70 percent are highly concerned about mobile malware infections, and more than half of firms with corporate-liable mobile devices have not installed security on their smartphones or tablets.

"IT administrators need a solution that easily manages and defends their enterprise mobility ecosystem without compromise," said Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI Inc. "Webroot's security intelligence and secure browsing capabilities enable MobiControl V10 to meet and exceed that need, continuing MobiControl's leadership in the MDM industry." With SOTI's scalable Mobile Device Management, customers can manage the complete mobile asset lifecycle, secure data and network integrity, integrate application environments, optimize costs and operations management, and provide best-in-class help desk support and services. The award-winning MobiControl platform enables organizations to address major challenges as their mobile device deployments grow in size and complexity. MobiControl V10 has a wide range of advanced new features including Web Filtering, Real Time Antivirus and Malware Protection, Help Desk Suite, Telecom Expense Management, and Secure Content Library.

"We are delighted to partner with SOTI to add our superior mobile security intelligence to its extensive MDM solution," said Dick Williams, Webroot CEO. "Today the endpoint is the perimeter of the enterprise network. Protecting that network and the data within it along with an increasingly mobile workforce must be a priority for IT managers, and with MobiControl V10 and Webroot they can do that without sacrificing other priorities." MobiControl V10 combined with Webroot Security Intelligence and secure web browsing delivers uncompromising defense against malware and web-based threats, ensuring end users and business data are protected. The solution draws on the power of the Webroot Intelligence Network, the world's most comprehensive security intelligence network, to deliver the most advanced threat defense. The solution will automatically scan applications and files for viruses, spyware and Trojans, blocking threats before they have a chance to compromise the device or data. In addition, the solution will provide a secure web browsing experience on managed devices, scanning web links and URLs to block phishing and other malicious content.
