PRESS RELEASE — DENVER, Feb. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pax8, the leading value-added cloud distributor, today announced a partnership with Webroot, the Smarter Cybersecurity® company. Through the new partnership, Pax8 is now offering the full suite of Webroot cloud security solutions, including SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection, SecureAnywhere® DNS Protection, and Security Awareness Training.
“Our partners asked for Webroot, and today, we delivered,” said Ryan Walsh, chief channel officer at Pax8. “Webroot’s intelligent cloud security solutions empower MSPs to protect their customers from cyberattacks. By combining the industry’s first fully cloud-based web security company with the first born-in-the-cloud distributor, this is a monumental partnership for the IT channel.”
The new partnership with Webroot provides managed service providers (MSPs) best-of-breed choice when it comes to protecting their customers’ data. The impact that Pax8 is having in the IT channel continues to expand, including the company’s ability to help MSPs profitably grow their businesses by adding new streams of monthly recurring revenue beyond Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection to Webroot Security Awareness Training and DNS Protection.
The Webroot Global Site Manager offers a full integration into industry-wide professional services automation (PSA) tools. Combined with the most comprehensive Pax8 + ConnectWise integration, MSPs now can offer, provision, deploy, and manage Webroot solutions in one place. The Pax8 award-winning partner program, along with the power of its Command Console, provides MSPs the accurate monthly billing, automated provisioning, and quote-to-cash support they need to keep their businesses running smoothly.
Additionally, Pax8 is offering MSP partners the new Webroot Security Awareness Training, which provides end user education. According to a Webroot Quarterly Threat Trends Report, 1.385 million new, unique phishing sites are created each month, making it essential for MSPs to educate their clients about this real-life threat.
“The multi-vector, multi-layer Webroot approach to security helps MSPs offer a smarter, streamlined solution to their customers,” said Charlie Tomeo, vice president of worldwide business sales. “We were the first to harness the cloud and artificial intelligence to protect businesses and individuals against cyber threats and are excited to partner with award-winning cloud distributor, Pax8.”
The lightweight Webroot agent was designed to run alongside other security software without conflict. This design streamlines deployment for MSPs and smooths the transition for their clients from previous security solutions to Webroot protection. Additionally, all Webroot protection is powered by Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Intelligence, which leverages advanced machine learning to analyze and score massive quantities of internet data to discern threats across multiple vectors, including IP, URL, file, and mobile apps. This technology not only helps block known and zero-day threats, but can also predict future threat sources.
Pax8 and Webroot will co-host a webinar about the new partnership and what it means to the IT channel on Tuesday, March 13th at 11:00 a.m. MST. To register, please click here.
