Security Intelligence for Mobile Solutions at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to be showcased by Webroot
Webroot, leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, will exhibit its powerful mobile security intelligence solutions at Mobile World Congress, the world’s largest mobile industry exhibition and conference. The explosion of mobile computing has given rise to an increase of security threats and Webroot will be at the event from February 25 through 28, 2013 at booth #8.1H47 in the App Planet Hall of the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain to demonstrate the most advanced threat defense for tablets and smartphones.
Mobile devices have redefined the secure corporate perimeter and with the increase of BYOD (bring your own device) IT administrators are struggling to maintain control of sensitive data. Webroot found in a recent proprietary survey of business security decision-makers that an overwhelming 82 percent of respondents believe that mobile devices create a high security risk within the corporate environment. Companies across the mobile ecosystem are realizing the very real threat mobile malware presents to their customers, and they are seeking to provide more sophisticated features and services to protect them.
To help carriers, device manufacturers and mobile device management (MDM) companies make security an integral part of their own offerings, Webroot developed the newly launched Webroot® Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite, which has already seen success via recently announced strategic partnerships with SOTI and FancyFon, who are enhancing their enterprise mobility solutions with Webroot technology. In addition to showcasing the Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite, Webroot will also demonstrate its innovative cloud-based Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ endpoint and mobile offerings that draw on the power of the Webroot Intelligence Network, the world’s most powerful cloud-based security intelligence service, as part of the company’s expansion into the mobile market.

“Mobile devices carry a great deal of sensitive corporate information, and businesses must ensure this data is secure anywhere their employees are connected,” said Patrick Kennedy, Vice President of Product Marketing & Sales Enablement at Webroot. “Webroot has delivered an innovative suite of cloud-based security intelligence solutions focused on protecting the expanding mobile network perimeter that we look forward to exhibiting at Mobile World Congress 2013.”
