This post is to remind customers that Webroot will end of life Webroot Business Mobile Protection on April 15, 2020.
This change will not impact any consumer products, endpoint protection, or the BrightCloud® Mobile Security SDK used by Webroot technology partners. Only business mobile protection products will be affected.
How will this impact you?
The end of life notice for Webroot Business Mobile Protection has the following implications:
As a follow up to the End of Life notification sent April 15, 2019, this email communication serves as a final notification of the end of life for the Webroot Business Mobile Protection product.
End of Life:
On April 15, 2020, the Webroot Business Mobile Protection product will be discontinued, and no further support will be provided.
As a reminder, you are not able to renew your contract at this time and should take measures to deploy an alternative mobile protection product or service.
You will continue to receive fully supported use and operation of Webroot Business Mobile Protection until the end of your subscription term, or the end of life date, whichever is sooner.
To ensure we offer the most compelling products, we continually review our product portfolio and align our products to the needs of the markets in which we operate. At times, we are required to discontinue certain products and introduce others with greater market relevance.
We continue to see fragmentation in the mobile management market among key technologies such as device management, malware protection, application management, containment, and others. These technologies are better aligned to a corporate enterprise market, and we have determined Webroot Business Mobile Protection no longer serves market needs.
We understand that you may be inconvenienced by this decision. Webroot believes that securing internet access and stopping malware is mandatory for mobile devices within the framework of a compelling and dynamic service offering. We intend to revisit the demands and requirements of this market in the future.
Thank you for your support and for being a Webroot customer. We truly hope we can continue to serve your cyber resiliency needs going forward.
