BROOMFIELD, Colo., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot, a leader in
delivering Internet security as a service, today announced the availability of
a portfolio of internet security solutions that give mobile technology
providers – from carriers to device manufacturers to mobile device management
(MDM) companies – easily deployable and cost-effective services to make
security an integral part of their own offerings. The Webroot® Security
Intelligence for Mobile Suite draws on the power of the Webroot Intelligence
Network (WIN), the world's most comprehensive cloud-based security
intelligence service, to deliver the most advanced threat defense to tablets
and smartphones.

Using the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite, Webroot's mobile
solution partners can use SDKs and direct APIs to integrate into their own
products with Webroot's award-winning anti-malware and anti-virus protection,
web filtering, app reputation and secure browsing capabilities. A key benefit
to the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite is that mobile
technology partners can offer their customers a highly sophisticated and
comprehensive mobile application reputation database, which has analyzed and
categorized more than 2.5 million mobile applications across the Android and
iOS platforms to identify and help block potentially harmful apps.

With the BYOD (bring your own device) trend on the rise, mobile devices are
becoming the security perimeter for the business and personal network. 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. More than half of those
surveyed reported that mobile threats had reduced employee productivity and
disrupted business activities. Cybercrime on mobile devices is already high
and accelerating, and as many as 10 percent of mobile applications contain
either malicious or undesirable behaviors. 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.

Two strategic partners who are enhancing their enterprise mobility solutions
integrating facets of the Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite are
SOTI and NEC. SOTI has incorporated Webroot's security intelligence into the
recently launched MobiControl V10, its next generation, enterprise-grade MDM
solution. In addition, Webroot partnered with NEC to develop NEC Mobile
Security Pro, a comprehensive cloud-based security offering.

"By partnering with Webroot, we were able to provide a more secure and
comprehensive solution that could seamlessly embed into our existing MDM
product," said Takashi Ohtsuki, General Manager of Carrier Network Business
Unit, NEC Corporation. "NEC Mobile Security Pro has seen marked success and
enables an all-in-one security service for the rapidly expanding mobile sector
in a package that is easy to install and offers a lightweight, user-friendly
business environment for our customers."

"As threats continue to evolve and mobility becomes a key priority for
businesses, our partners must make security a core element in their product
strategies," said Mark Hanson, VP of Strategic Alliance at Webroot. "The
Webroot Security Intelligence for Mobile Suite will provide partners with a
comprehensive portfolio of security solutions and management tools to leverage
business opportunities and drive more revenue through the mobile ecosystem. We
are pleased that we are seeing strong adoption of our Security Intelligence
solutions, particularly with two strong partners, SOTI and NEC, leading the
way."

Webroot will be demonstrating its mobile security intelligence solutions at
Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013, held in Barcelona in booth #8.1H47, February
25 through 28, 2013. To learn how your organization can partner with Webroot,
