Webroot, a cloud security software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider, has unveiled new enterprise-class threat intelligence services.

The new BrightCloud Security Services for Enterprise are designed to provide threat intelligence through integration with popular network security and management platforms, according to the company.

BrightCloud Security Services collect and analyze threat intelligence across multiple vectors from a network of nearly 35 million users protected by Webroot's endpoint security solutions and the company's technology partners, including:

  • Aruba Networks
  • Cisco Systems
  • F5
  • Microsoft
  • RSA

Webroot said it correlates this data through its Intelligence Network to deliver real-time threat intelligence.

"Businesses are struggling to identify and stop new web threats because the rate of change is faster than many current security technologies can keep up with. Either they are too slow to recognize new threats, or they are simply overwhelmed by the amount of data generated," Mike Malloy, Webroot's executive vice president of products and strategy, said in a prepared statement.

"Webroot's BrightCloud Security Services for Enterprise provide truly actionable insight by continuously assessing the risk of incoming IPs based on both their reputation and their relationship to other IPs, malicious URLs, files and apps, and we tailor that intelligence to each customer's unique environment."

The first services within Webroot's BrightCloud portfolio, BrightCloud for Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) and BrightCloud for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), support integration with security solutions from Palo Alto Networks (PANW) and Splunk (SPLK).

Webroot pointed out its automated machine learning and big data analytics solutions allows enterprises to "augment the threat data in their existing network appliances and security management solutions with highly accurate and customized intelligence to gain earlier and more complete insight into potential Web-based threats."

The company noted its SaaS solutions protect over 7 million consumers worldwide.
