BROOMFIELD - Webroot today announced a partnership with Corero Network Security (CNS: LN), an international network security company and the leading provider of First Line of Defense network security products.

Corero will integrate Webroot IP Reputation Service into its solutions to provide customers with increased real-time protection against known malicious threats, Webroot said.

"Attack vectors are continually changing and we are committed to combating those attack sources by all means," said Marty Meyer, Corero CEO. "Adding the Webroot IP Reputation data to our existing dynamic IP protection solutions will create the industry's most comprehensive IP Reputation offering."

Massachusetts-based Corero's products and services provide real-time contextual awareness to block malicious IP addresses in response to the latest intelligence and subsequently unblock the IP addresses when they are no longer a source of attack.

"We are excited to work with Corero Network Security to help ensure that their customers are equipped with the best first line of defense against rapidly-evolving Internet threats," said Mark Hanson, Webroot Strategic Alliances vice president.

"Now, IT professionals will have the additional peace of mind that their infrastructures are more secure than ever."
