Webroot logoBROOMFIELD - Webroot, a market leader in cloud-based, real-time Internet threat detection, announced it is expanding its enterprise-class security solutions with the introduction of BrightCloud Security Services for Enterprise.

The product is a new portfolio of services that makes Webroot's threat intelligence available through integration with popular network security and management platforms.

The first services within the portfolio, BrightCloud for Next Generation Firewall and BrightCloud for Security Information and Event Management, support integration with security solutions from Palo Alto Networks and Splunk, Webroot said.

Unlike most other threat intelligence solutions, Webroot said BrightCloud Security Services collect and analyze threat intelligence across multiple vectors - IP, URK, File and Application - from a massive network of nearly 35 million users protected by Webroot endpoint security solutions and by Webroot technology partners.

"Businesses are struggling to identify and stop new Web threats because the rate of change is faster than many current security technologies can keep up with," said Mike Malloy, Webroot's executive VP of products and strategy.

"Either they are too slow to recognize new threats, or they are simply overwhelmed by the amount of data generated. Webroot's BrightCloud Security Services for Enterprises provide truly actionable insight by continuously assessing the risk of incoming IPs based on both their reputation and their relationship to other IPs, malicious URLs, files and apps, and we tailor that intelligence to each customer's unique environment."
