Join Webroot at the Canalys Channels Forum, October 2nd and 3rd in Barcelona, Spain. The subject is "Leading through transitions." From Canalys: [i]The IT industry is in a transition phase, driven by the consumerization of IT, enterprise mobility and data center transformation. These technology-driven changes are cascading through to purchase decision processes and IT management competencies.[/i] [i]Businesses are embracing new IT consumption models and experimenting with analytics to understand their customers. Much of this is driven by the superior price/performance ratio gained from converging infrastructure, in-memory computing, integrated security and, increasingly, software-enabled services.

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

Cloud & managed service providers (and their customers) are facing a constantly changing array of threats to the IT network. The old ways of protecting IT are no longer sufficient. New methods for protecting devices, applications, and customer data, must be explored in order to remain on the cutting edge of managing security. This webcast will explore some of the more common threats facing IT today, as well as helpful solutions for safeguarding against those threats. Webcast Highlights: • BYOD policies to protect customer data while allowing for maximum user productivity • Web based threats • The changing nature of the network perimeter • Learn how to develop a comprehensive IT security framework for your users • Cloud security that blends both public and private cloud environments Who should attend? • VARs • MSPs • Break/Fix Providers • Hosting companies • Data Centers • ISPs [u]Speakers:[/u] Charles Weaver, CEO, MSPAlliance Scott Provvidenza,
Check out his session [url=http://www.infosec.co.uk/en/Sessions/4629/Paranoid-Android-Addressing-the-risks-of-mobile]here[/url]. "For businesses, enterprise mobility has great potential and for mobile companies, corporate accounts are a major revenue source. But this will only be realised if security is tackled - mobile will never find a real place in business if the board believe valuable data could fall into the wrong hands. In this session, Grayson Milbourne, Security Intelligence Director for Webroot, will discuss the challenges facing businesses as they move into mobile, why is Android such a concern, and what can businesses and their employees do to protect data? Those attending will leave the session with a better understanding of the nature of mobile cybercrime, and a knowledge of how they can protect against it."

We've got a webinar coming up on Tuesday: [b]Adopting a Services-Based Model for Success[/b] Description: In today's evolving IT market, services are playing a larger role as customers look for ways to increase their IT prowess without increasing their IT spend. VARs that are holding on to the traditional hardware, break/fix model of business soon will find themselves left behind by customers who need 24/7 support from a reliable services provider.

This webinar is sponsored by The Channel Company and is titled: [b]Be the One-Stop IT Shop Your Customers Need[/b] Description: Value-added resellers may have made their mark selling hardware in years past, but savvy VARs are quickly shifting to services-based models to capitalize on new opportunities in the channel. While hardware and software can remain an important part of the business, customers are increasingly moving to software and platforms as a service, saving money and IT resources along the way. Fortunately, this plays to the strengths of VARs in terms of sourcing and system integration. Customers want a one-stop shop for all things IT so they can devote their energy to strategic growth instead of managing multiple service providers, hardware vendors, software licensing, security, and more.

Tomorrow, at 11:00 AM MST we'll be hosting a BrightTalk webinar called: 'CryptoLocker: Your Money or Your Life". CryptoLocker is a particularly nasty form of 'Ransomware' that gained its notoriety last September when it took the concept of ransomware to a whole new level. You see, typical ransomware usually hijacks your desktop wallpaper, demanding you pay up to get your files back. Fortunately, it was easy to remove. CryptoLocker, on the other hand, actually used very strong encryption methods to encrypt your files and gave you three days to pay the ransom and get your files back. The thing is, paying the ransom is really the only way to obtain the private key and get your files back.

We are excited to announce that over the next year, Grayson Milbourne will be presenting a monthly webinar with BrightTalk, covering a full range of security subjects that affect businesses every day. Be sure to watch out for each month's webinar announcement and get registered early. [b]Cloud Security Intelligence vs. First Generation Detection and Remediation[/b] [b]Register here: [url=https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/8241/85977]https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/8241/85977[/url][/b] The presentation will review the threat landscape and why traditional AV has become a burden to organizations and failed to deliver adequate protection. It will cover the power of user sourced, big data analytics and the processing power of cloud, to deliver efficient and effective protection. It will also cover how this highly differentiated approach to endpoint protection, is the future for securing multiple and varying devices, in an industry dominated by me-too solutions. [
[b]“An Evolving Computing Landscape Brings New Challenges for Endpoint Protection”[/b] It can be difficult to define what an endpoint looks like these days as staff members are just as likely to reply to an email from a smartphone in a coffee shop as their desktop PC in the office. This is an indication of a rapid evolution in computing which is impacting organizations of every size and industry. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/6165i8D5FCCC122CD61DC.jpg[/img][i]Andrew Rose, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research[/i] These endpoint changes are adding complexity to an already challenging environment and this has implications for data control and security. Information security leaders need to reconsider both endpoint protection and the human aspects of technology use to ensure that their traditional controls don't slip into obsolescence leaving them vulnerable to malicious outsiders.
