We all have to, at some point, pick a career path in IT. Whether that be virtualization, networking, DBA, or whatever. How do you pick a path, and woudl you go back and do it differently? I haven't quite made a definitive decision yet, as I'm still fairly young in my career. Here is some advice, or general guidelines, as to how you can pick one though.

[b]Comment: Interesting question why women are not attracted to IT professions???[/b] [b]=================================================================================================[/b] By Lynne Y. WilliamsJuly 30, 2014 08:04 AM ET Computerworld - IT is a growing profession, and one that requires skills that women not only possess but oftentimes excel at. And yet [url=http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9250053/www.computerworld.com/s/article/9243700/Jonny_Evans_Technology_is_sexist]women remain a distinct minority within the profession[/url]. Why is that, and how can it be changed? Computing should be an attractive field of study for anyone. Nonetheless, although recent Bureau of Labor Statistics findings show that computing-related jobs are growing at a rate almost double that of all other fields, fewer students are enrolling in computing majors. That trend led the BLS a few years ago to project that by 2018 approximately half of all jobs requiring extensive computing ex
Samsung and Mozilla are teaming up on the future of Web browsing. The Firefox maker is collaborating with Samsung on a new Web browser engine known as Servo, which Mozilla said "is an attempt to rebuild the Web browser from the ground up on modern hardware, rethinking old assumptions along the way." >> Learn More.

[b]Posted on 07 May 2015.[/b] High workplace stress levels for IT professionals are dramatically impacting both employees and employers. These impacts are illustrated by increases in those staff looking to find another job, and in those working increasing amounts of unpaid overtime to cope with workloads. A growing number of IT staff are also experiencing substantial disruption to their personal lives as a result of work demands.

Beginning this morning, our SonicWall gateway antivirus has started blocking the endpoint upgrade to 18.104.22.168 - clearly a false positive signature in the SonicWall AV database. What are the IP address ranges for the Business Endpoint Protection service so that I can add them to my firewall exclude list?
I'm trying to make a registry adjustment on my remote endpoints, and am limited in my options as the majority of our laptops aren't on the same network as I am. I was excited when I found the "Advanced" options under Agent Commands. Three of these looked viable, however I couldn't get any of them to work. [b]Run a DOS command: [/b] reg.exe add "HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionImage File Execution Optionsgwx.exe" /v Debugger /t REG_SZ /d "C:WindowsSystem32systray.exe" /f [b]Run a registry command:[/b] add "HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionImage File Execution Optionsgwx.exe" /v Debugger /t REG_SZ /d "C:WindowsSystem32systray.exe" /f[b]Download and run a file:[/b] [list] [*]Have Webroot download and run a BAT file containing the DOS command above.[/list] When the command is run locally on a computer, it works great. Has anyone had any success via any of the methods above?
I recently pushed out Webroot using a group policy. I noticed that some computers are showing up twice in the console as protected machines. The duplicates are virtual XenCenter machines with static IP addresses. Does moving or rebooting these computers cause group policy to push out Webroot each time? How do I eliminate the duplicate computers from the console and prevent group policy from sending out the msi to machines that are already protected?
Hello, I currently have a few surface users who are currently experincing low to no battery after the install of webroot. At the end of the day they hit the standby button putting the surface to sleep and come in the next day expecting battery life to find there is none. I have done the normal check of the policy to see if its set to not allow scans under battery power and I have also checked to see if theres anything else on the policy settings that could affect it. Has anyone had the same issue or perhaps could point me in the right direction to help out these users. Thanks you for your time. Steve
I log into the web portal every morning to take a look at things and see how everything is going. Make sure when new agent versions roll out that all my endpoints update to that version properly. This morning when I logged in I saw that one of my endpoints had updated to Agent Version 22.214.171.124. None of my other endpoints where updated to this new agent version. Now I understand that there are other factors that are involved and that they won't all update instantly, but I was trying to find release notes for this new Agent Version and I have alas come up unsuccessful. Anyone have any idea when these release notes will become available? Has anyone else had their endpoints updated to this new Agent Version?
We have a legacy VMware Thin App virtualised application which has been working until quite recently, i.e. just in the last day or so, users are experiencing app crashes when launching the virtualised app.We have found that removing the Webroot client from a sample computer eliminates the symptoms of the application crashing and therefore we believe that the Webroot client is interfering with execution.We have added Global Whitelists entries for the Application executable and for the UNC from where the Application executable is run and streamed, but this has not resolved the issue.I suspect that somehow the Webroot client is interfering with the data streaming process upon which the ThinApp virtualisation framework depends.This affected application is business critical, so I need to find a way to correct this behaviour, or we will be forced to abandon Webroot in favour of an alternative AV solution for all affected users. I have a raised a Support ticket today and currently awaiting a
I've seen several posts on this subject already, with no clear resolution. We have 50+ sites, with random endpoints that are "not seen recently" and are all on a previous version of Webroot (not the most current). My assumption is that the endpoints have just stopped "checking in" with the console and are not upgrading as they should. We have hundreds of endpoints in this state. The fix I've seen is "reinstall Webroot" but I have yet to see a solution to the root cause. We're a Continuum partner, so we're not supposed to contact Webroot directly, but I don't see any other way to get this resolved. Can anyone offer advice here? This is a pretty big problem for us (and I'm not the only one, others in the Continuum forums have the same issue).
I keep asking for the problem to be fixed here [url=https://www.webrootanywhere.com/servicetalk.asp?source=]https://www.webrootanywhere.com/servicetalk.asp?source=[/url] and all I keep getting is my "old" key extended, and "not" the actual problem fixed. I really don't have time for this. Either somebody correct the error/bug, or I'm looking forward to another company to do buisness with. Can I get the highest manager please? I'm ready to throw in the towel if this get yet another extension. I don't want sorry's , or free hand outs. I'm just looking to continue like last year....without any major problems, and I don't have to bother you with this matter again. Last but not least if this gets fixed, and it's another repeat next year then I'm done. What 's the point of 5 days extra here, 30 days here etc. Roll everything over to the new key code already. I have everything backed up. Good Luck!
Hi Please could someone let me know which specific ports to allow outbound to the following URLs as part of the SecureAnywhere Endpoint Protection setup: [b]Communicating Through a Firewall[/b] If a firewall is in place, please allow Webroot’s path masks through the firewall, as described in the following table. PATHINFORMATION *.prevxinfo.com -- *.prevx.com -- *.amazonaws.com -- *.cloudfront.net -- *.webrootcloudav.com Covers the g-url’s as well as several other target addresses. *.*.webrootcloudav.com Some devices don’t like a single * for urls that contain dots in the value of *. *.p4.webrootcloudav.com For devices that don't like multiple *’s. *.compute.amazonaws.com Covers inbound communication from the Amazon cloud servers. *.webroot.com To be used for future communications *.webrootanywhere.com To be used for future communications Thanks
Hi Everybody, Webroot is somewhat new to me, so I'm really not aware of the "ins and outs" yet. So as stated I installed Webroot Endpoint Protection on a users computer but it's not appearing on my console. I entered my companies keycode and its been over 24 hours. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!!
We are an IT company and want to be a webroot reseller, we have several new clients that have existing subscriptions that we would like to take over, how do we go about doing that and becoming a reseller for other customers?
It would be great if there was a document which had the complete list of command-line options/switches for both Windows and Mac as well as documenting the functions of each option/switch. I know the existence of [url=https://docs.webroot.com/us/en/business/wsab_endpointprotection_adminguide/Content/ManagingEndpoints/IssuingCommandsToEndpoints.htm]https://docs.webroot.com/us/en/business/wsab_endpointprotection_adminguide/Content/ManagingEndpoints/IssuingCommandsToEndpoints.htm[/url] and [url=https://download.webroot.com/WSAB-EP_GettingStartedGuide.pdf]https://download.webroot.com/WSAB-EP_GettingStartedGuide.pdf[/url]. These pages aren't enough as they are either incomplete with information or don't display commands for Mac. The reason why I say the second link is incomplete is because other than not displaying Mac specific/only/non-functional commands, it doesn't show the -silentscan command-line option/switch anywhere within and because of that I do not trust the full integrity of
Hi all This is my first question to the forum. When you "Generate a Alll Undetermined Software Report" Then select "Files" and apply "Good" to a policy. For example for Windows 10 (which comes up as Undetermined). By doing the above process does this get sent to webroot? I would think that if "X" people running webroot all say that this file is "Good" than it would automatically be moved out of the applied "Good" exception group to be applied to good "Gobal Pool". Or is my thinking just a pie dream and no such process exists. If so how do webroot get to find out about new files, as this I would see as fairly critical to the system. Thanks Mark.
Hello, I saw something strange in my webroot console, there is 2 entries for the same VM [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/23907i83B150F8B01655C8.jpg[/img] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/23908i3A678AD9919324C5.jpg[/img] I don't understand why can someone explain me this please ? Best regards.
Today's edition of CNET's bi-weekly "Ask Maggie" tech advice column puts a small twist on a topic we here at Webroot are very well-versed on-[b]mobile[/b] [b]malware[/b] [b]and[/b] [b]how to[/b] [b]protect against it.[/b] The twist is the question: Will switching from iOS to Android increase the chance of getting malware on my mobile device? (You can read the full CNET article [url=http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57557684-94/should-malware-risks-factor-into-the-iphone-vs-android-debate/]here)[/url] While the article is about personal use, I think it's just as relevant for business conversation as BYOD continues to be a hot topic. So I'd like to extend the discussion to the Webroot Business Community to get your thoughts on this. 1. In general, how big of a concern is malware on mobile devices? How can it limit acceptance of BYOD policies? 2. If you're already using/planning to use BYOD at your company, which OS do you prefer your employees using? If it's iOS, is it becau
