Looking for Webroot DNS protection?
Webroot SecureAnywhere provides a single solution for antivirus, anti-malware, antiransomware,
anti-phishing, and zero-day threat protection.
Webroot uses multi-vector protection to secure endpoints and users across all stages of a cyberattack,
and this includes protection against malware. Webroot effectively stops malware and zero-day threats
at the moment of attack by combining SecureAnywhere file pattern and predictive behavior recognition
technology with cutting edge machine learning and the processing power of cloud computing.
With the Webroot approach, you no longer need to rely on an outmoded detection model that is easily
overwhelmed by today’s malware—a model that yields unknown dwell times, can’t protect users until after
malware has already infiltrated the system, and doesn’t alert on attacks until long after the infiltration has
SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection is fully cloud-based so there are no definitions or signatures
to deploy and manage, and malware detection can occur continuously in real time so performance issues
fade away. SecureAnywhere is also the first malware prevention technology to report on its own efficacy
at detecting infections and stopping malware. Dwell time reporting gives you visibility into any infection on
any endpoint within your network, showing you when the infection began and how long it was contained by
Webroot before being automatically remediated.
SecureAnywhere is supported by the Webroot Threat Intelligence Platform, which leverages big data
analytics, machine learning, and threat intelligence to identify infections as they occur. This allows
SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection to uncover malware as it attempts to infect an individual
user’s endpoint, while simultaneously protecting all other SecureAnywhere endpoints against the same

Equifax Hack (again)
Reports have surfaced that the Equifax website may have been hacked again. According to PC Mag, "visitors to the site were offered a fake Flash Player update that installed adware."
Webroot was one of only 3 antivirus providers (out of 65) to detect and block the adware, according to data from VirusTotal.com.
"Webroot first encountered this threat in early 2016. We've seen this specific file blocked on thousands of computers worldwide. Adware is a gray area, so it explains why only a few antivirus providers caught this." - @TylerM, Sr. Threat Research Analyst
