Webroot CEO, Dick Williams, will be speaking at the 15th Annual Needham Growth Conference for investors in New York, and you can have a virtual front-row seat via webcast. Mr. Williams will talk about cloud-based security as a service and how, with the rise of people bringing their own devices (BYOD) to work, the endpoint is the new business security perimeter. The Annual Needham Growth Conference gives institutional investors, private equity firms, and venture capitalists access to growth companies from a broad range of industries. By participating in the conference, growth companies like Webroot get fresh insights about the needs, trends and interests of investors and VCs. Dick’s presentation is slated for Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 9 a.m. Eastern Time/7:00 MST/6:00 PST/14:00 GMT. The live webcast and (for those of you who are not early birds) replays of his talk will be available online. The official press release with additional information a
[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
Webroot's George Anderson was recently interviewed by IT Security Pro about Webroot's new [url=http://www.webroot.com/En_US/business/mobile-protection/]SecureAnywhere Business Mobile Protection[/url]. Here are some highlights: [i] [/i] [i]“We’re very much cloud-based,”[/i] he said, adding that this does not mean the company has committed 100 per cent of its security resources into the cloud, since you always have to have some degree of security enabled locally, for the times when an Internet connection is not available. [i] [/i] [i]If someone is offline, he adds, then IT admins can set the security parameters of the mobile device very high, effectively locking down usage until such time as the device reconnects to the Internet and the cloud security platform.[/i] [i]In recent survey carried out by Webroot, he says, 57pc of respondents reported as that there is a significant security issue with the rise of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) in the enterprise.[

While we think online communities are a great way to interact and stay in touch with our customers, next week we're taking a hands-on approach as well. We will be live, in person, full flesh and blood attending the RSA Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Not only can you find many Webrooters attending the show (including all our lovely community moderators) at the Webroot booth or roaming through the conference isles, but we will also have a speaking session where we get down to the nitty gritty of how we find and stomp out Android malware. What would a conference be without a human-sized stress relief doll, a little old lady that speaks the [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgervxMmoqA&list=UUfqdHh38_wniFjll7yWk16w&index=11&feature=plpp_video][i]real[/i] truth[/url] about traditional security and of course booth giveaways?
