On July 17, 2013 at 11:00AM, Webroot's Security Intelligence Director, Grayson Milbourne, will be presenting a webinar entitled "Enhancing MDM's to Protect User Privacy through App Reputation." [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/5084i807376E1F707A421.jpg[/img] Today’s MDM solutions are effective at lost device and malicious app protection, ensuring passwords are used and separating and securing both personal and corporate information on the same device – but what about protecting against apps with shady privacy practices? For instance, apps whose developers monetize through imbedded advertising engines which pay based on the amount of user data collected. Or, apps which insecurely store, access and/or transmit user data. How can IT admins protect against the choices users are making when installing 3rd party apps? From a security perspective, this area needs to be addressed before corporate and personal data is compromised. As a result, a mob

In today's age of smartphones and tablets, it's pretty much a two horse race between Google and Apple. Sure Microsoft and Blackberry are back in the game with their new and respectable OS's, but in terms of developer backing, the shear wealth of apps available, and device sales, it's not even close. However, one of the biggest stories at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona ([url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Events-Conferences/Mobile-World-Congress-2013-Explore-the-New-Mobile-Horizon/td-p/26044]going on now[/url]) has been new mobile operating systems. Firefox OS made a lot of headlines on day one when it received some [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Events-Conferences/Big-win-for-Mozilla-on-day-one-of-Mobile-World-Congress/m-p/28056]serious backing from both hardware manufacturers and carriers[/url].

However, when ignited by understanding and context, data can become so much more. In 1440, Johannes Gutenberg, a goldsmith by profession, completed his invention of the printing press, which sparked a revolution in the way people see and describe the world they live in. This collection of wooden and metal letters, regarded as one of the most influential inventions of the second millennium, led to the mass distribution of information and a wave of enlightenment that modernized and transformed cu
As you probably know, we have a team in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2013. And [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Events-Conferences/Mobile-World-Congress-2013-Explore-the-New-Mobile-Horizon/td-p/26044]we have a booth[/url]! There (more precisely Booth #8.1H47 in the App Planet Hall), we're [url=http://www.webroot.com/En_US/pr/web-security/ent/webroot-to-showcase-security-intelligence-for-mobile-solutions-at-mobile-world-congress-in-barcelona-022513.html]showcasing our Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite[/url] as well as demoing our unique, light, and powerful SecureAnywhere Endpoint and Mobile products. Why is mobile security so important? In an age where BYOD is ever-increasing in popularity at companies and with users shifting to mobile computing more than ever before, mobile threats are also rising (and more importantly adapting) quickly. Because of this, IT admins are finding it harder and harder to maintain control of sensitive company data. In a recent Webroo
So far, Barcelona's Mobile World Congress 2013 has brought about a [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Events-Conferences/ASUS-off-to-a-quick-start-at-MWC13/m-p/27996]slew of new mobile devices[/url] and [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Events-Conferences/Big-win-for-Mozilla-on-day-one-of-Mobile-World-Congress/m-p/28056]a new mobile OS[/url], but not everything has to be directly about mobile to impress at the world's biggest mobile conference. Enter global semiconductor Qualcomm.

Barcelona's Mobile World Congress is..well, all about mobile. With that all-encompassing theme, it comes as no surprise that new Android devices (including [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Events-Conferences/ASUS-off-to-a-quick-start-at-MWC13/m-p/27996]two unique offerings from ASUS[/url]) are everywhere.

Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona is underway and Taiwan's ASUS has already made a splash revealing two new mobile products, the [url=http://techcrunch.com/2013/02/25/asus-ceo-reveals-the-249-fonepad-another-tablet-you-can-talk-on/]Fonepad[/url] and the [url=http://techcrunch.com/2013/02/25/asus-debuts-new-5-inch-1080p-snapdragon-600-powered-padfone-infinity-smartphone-tablet-hybrid/]PadFone Infinity[/url]. Despite the similarities in the names (albeit flipped), these two products couldn't be more different. The $249 Fonepad is essentially a tablet you can make calls with and talk on. It will run Android and be powered by an Intel Atom Z2420 processor with 1GB RAM and a 3G wireless radio to make those phone calls possible. The PadFone Infinity, on the other hand, is a high-end smartphone/tablet hybrid. The aforementioned link breaks the specs and features down in more detail, but here are the basics: The LTE smartphone has a 5-inch display with a 1920X1080 resolution and 441 PPI.

[b][u]The Past and Future History of Malware[/u][/b] Malware has come a long way since the Morris worm started the darkware bandwagon rolling in late 1998. As the information security industry moves towards the 25th anniversary of the first worm, the BIG question on every security professional's lips is: what is coming down the malware turnpike next? Join us for an entertaining and enlightening Webinar in which our panel of experts will look at the history of malware, what lessons history teaches us, and what attack vectors cybercriminals are likely to use in the future as they seek to monetise their frauds. [b]This webinar will help you...[/b] [i] [/i] [i]Understand how cybercriminal strategies are evolving...[/i] [i] [/i] [i]Learn why the endpoint is a key target for cybercriminals… [/i] [i] [/i] [i]Develop an understanding of AET/APT attack vectors...[/i] [i] [/i] [i]Refine your Internet and Web security strategies...[/i] [i] [/i]
[b][u]Is your Web security agile enough for today's Internet?[/u][/b] The Web - and the way employees use it - is changing. Static 2D Web browser usage is being replaced by dynamic and multi-dimensional pages, all driven by extensible code. Extensible code can take many forms - ActiveX, HTML5, Java, you name it - but most Web security platforms cannot defend your data from what has become a multi-threaded and complex programming environment. Whilst your users are enjoying a rich multimedia Internet, a new range of security threats can fly in under the wire. This Webinar will brief you on the nature of these threats and what you - and your hosting provider - can do to prevent any problems. [u]Along the way you will learn:[/u] [i]What threats extensible code poses your IT platform…[/i] [i] [/i] [i]Which strategies are required to counter these threats…[/i] [i] [/i] [i]The challenges that IPv6 adds to the communications/security mix…[/i
