BROOMFIELD -- Webroot,  a market leader in intelligent cybersecurity for endpoints and collective threat intelligence, and San Jose, Calif.-based Lynx Software Technologies Inc. announced a strategic partnership to enable developers to build advanced threat detection into Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices.Webroot_logoUSE

The Webroot IoT Security Toolkit enables IoT and IIoT systems integrators and solution designers to integrate real-time threat intelligence services and intelligent cybersecurity device agents to protect critical systems against modern threats.

The LynxSecure Hypervisor is a secure virtualization solution that is based on separation kernel technology originally designed to separate and protect military networks at different classification levels.

Combining the two technologies will allow for detection, identification and containment of threats without the constraints or risks inherent in running solutions at the operating system level, the companies said.

“With constantly changing security threats, we need an IoT security solution that adapts to any environment while taking into account the importance of future-proofing and the need for living protection,” said Dick Williams, Webroot CEO.

“By combining our technologies, we’re able to offer a unique solution to protect the connected IoT world from advanced targeted threats.”
