BROOMFIELD -- Webroot announced a new integration with Maryland-based Blackpoint Cyber to provide an advanced IT security solution to protect managed service providers (MSPs) and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) from sophisticated cyberattacks.webroot-logonew

The integration combines the threat intelligence-powered Webroot® Business Endpoint Protection with Blackpoint Cyber's managed detection and response platform, SNAP-Defense, the companies said.

The integration incorporates live data from Webroot's endpoint protection to provide context to the customer's environment and the threat situation within the Blackpoint Cyber console.

Customers of Webroot and Blackpoint Cyber will have immediate access to the advanced security defenses of a 24/7 managed detection and response service for their network infrastructure and experienced SOC analysts to lean on for advanced threat mitigation.

Webroot will provide key risk and device information such as threat status, threat path, engine version, communications status, shields status, and environment settings, offering context for the Blackpoint Cyber system and adding the power of next-gen Webroot anti-malware capabilities to threat lifecycle determinations. 

"For MSPs and their clients, the need for simple, automated security solutions is paramount,” said Chad Bacher, Carbonite SVP.

“Through our integration with Blackpoint Cyber, we're providing an easy-to-use avenue for MSPs to deliver advanced threat protection. We are always on the lookout for ways to help streamline operations for our partners, and this new integration will give MSPs a powerful new tool in the fight against cybercrime."

"Keeping up with the evolution of cyberattacks can be a major obstacle for modern organizations,” said Jon Murchison, Blackpoint CEO.

“This is especially true for SMBs, which often face a severe lack of security skills and resources within their company. To this end, we are thrilled to offer this new integration with Webroot to give SMBs and MSPs access to affordable yet advanced solutions, thus reducing the resources our clients and channel partners require to ensure security."
