BROOMFIELD/SAN JOSE -- ShieldX Networks and Colorado-based Webroot announced they have joined forces to help enterprises address the growing number of cyberattacks in the Cloud.

ShieldX said it is integrating Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Intelligence Services with APEIRO™ to help enterprises effectively identify and automatically respond to suspicious activities within multi-cloud environments. On Oct. 25, the companies will host a joint webcast featuring a panel of experts who will shed light on what CISOs and other security professionals need to know about how the threat landscape has evolved over the past year.webroot-logonew

They will talk about what’s not working, and provide actionable guidance on how to defend against the rising number and sophistication of cyberattacks.

“By combining Webroot’s easily integrated, industry-leading threat intelligence solutions with the ShieldX APEIRO platform, businesses can better protect themselves against modern cyber threats,” said Hal Lonas, Webroot CTO.

“ShieldX shares our belief that a multi-layered and real-time approach is now essential to protect against the dissolving network perimeter.

“We look forward to expanding our partnership with ShieldX to provide our customers with an on demand, real-time security solution for the Cloud.”

ShieldX APEIRO is the first to combine network-based security concepts with the latest application and infrastructure innovations to deliver the most scalable cloud security solution available on the market today, the company said.

APEIRO provides visibility, automation and coordination across multiple cloud environments to provide customers with unparalleled, real-time protection against current network and data cyber threats.

“Providing a cloud security solution that delivers security, and is both scalable and budget friendly is of key importance to ShieldX. Together with Webroot, we are combining best-of-breed threat intelligence with real-time prevention of attacks,” said Dr. Ratinder Ahuja, ShieldX founder and CEO.

“Now with APEIRO advanced security controls and micro-segmentation on demand, customers can automatically prevent, detect and stop suspicious activities in progress, before the damage is done.”

Webroot, which recently commissioned Enterprise Security Group (ESG) to conduct a survey of North American enterprise security decision makers about cybersecurity trends, will be joining Gartner “Cool Vendor” ShieldX to host a cybersecurity panel discussion on Oct. 25.
