Webroot announced strategic partnership with Kaseya to offer customers the security, efficacy, ease of management and cost savings that endpoint administrators need to protect clients and users from advanced cyber threats.

Webroot Kaseya Module

Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection (WSAB) has been tightly integrated as module into Kaseya VSA gives customers simplified and automated endpoint security management that ensures each individual endpoint is constantly monitored and protected against malware, ransomware and advanced persistent threats.

Additional benefits include support for Apple products and access to Webroot Unity API (Unity), which allows security administrators to access additional Webroot endpoint data and services for more efficient business operations, actionable information and better service delivery to customers.

Managing an endpoint security solution is an increasingly challenging task for MSPs and small businesses. Issues can include poor efficacy, poor event visibility, poor automation and remediation, high support-desk call rates and increasingly high operational costs. Making matters worse is the complexity of today’s security landscape,

Organizations need endpoint security solutions that are cost effective yet powerful, efficient yet highly secure. The partnership of Kaseya and Webroot offers an automated solution that meets these requirements.

Charlie Tomeo, vice president of channel and technical sales at Webroot said
