Webroot logoBROOMFIELD - Webroot, a market leader in cloud-based, real-time Internet threat detection, today announced a partnership with Australia-based 443 Networks, a developer and distributor of security platforms.

The partnership provides 443 Networks with a highly distributed and highly cooperative learning system to deliver smarter security with Webroot BrightCloud Security Services, Webroot said.

Complementing their existing portfolio, Webroot said 443 Networks chose to use a combination of their own cloud platform and Webroot BrightCloud with collective threat intelligence.

"High-profile breaches like that of Target and Home Depot highlight the importance of being able to identify the risk with any endpoint outside the organization," said Keith Glennan, 443 Networks CEO.

"Our capabilities in the areas of real-time reputation have been greatly enhanced by our partnership with Webroot, and we anticipate this will be invaluable to our end customers."

"We are excited to announce our OEM partnership with 443 Networks," said Scott Merkel, Webroot's VP of enterprise and OEM sales. "The cloud-based Webroot Intelligence Network delivers a truly differentiated model for intelligent cybersecurity that is superior to static lists or crowd-sourced data."
