Webroot logoBROOMFIELD - Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, announced the release of a portfolio of Internet security solutions that give mobile technology providers easily deployable and cost-effective services to make security and integral part of their own offerings.

The Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite draws on the power of the Webroot Intelligence Network (WIN) - the world's most comprehensive cloud-based security intelligence service - to deliver the most advanced threat defense to smartphones and tablets, the company said.

Using the mobile suite, Webroot's mobile solution partners can use SDKs and direct APIs to integrate into their own products with Webroot's award-winning anti-malware and anti-virus protection, web filtering, app reputation and secure browsing capabilities.

A key benefit of the mobile suite is that mobile tech partners can offer their customers a highly sophisticated and comprehensive mobile application reputation database, which has analyzed and categorized more than 2.5 million mobile applications across the Android and iOS platforms to identify and help block potentially harmful apps, Webroot said.

It's estimated that up to 10 percent of mobile applications contain either malicious or undesirable behaviors, Webroot said.

"As threats continue to evolve and mobility becomes a key priority for businesses, our partners must make security a core element in their product strategies," said Mark Hanson, Webroot's vice president of strategic alliance.

"The Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite will provide partners with a comprehensive portfolio of security solution and management tools to leverage business opportunities and drive more revenue through the mobile ecosystem."
