BROOMFIELD, Colo., Feb. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot, the market leader in intelligent cybersecurity for endpoints and collective threat intelligence, today announced a partnership with Fast Fix 123, an online technical support company providing computer services and diagnostics. Through this partnership, Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection and Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Mobile Protection will be deployed in conjunction with Fast Fix's remote connection technology to allow its certified technicians to protect customers more effectively, increase their network administrator efficiency, and lower overhead costs.
Businesses and clients that rely on the security of their data, but do not have adequate expertise or resources, are increasingly turning to managed service providers (MSPs) such as Fast Fix to ensure system protection and remediation. MSPs are rapidly standardizing with Webroot's smarter approach to cybersecurity because it harnesses the power of collective intelligence and offers easy, remote administration.
"Webroot has provided a cloud-based endpoint protection that allows our customers to take a hands-off approach, while our Microsoft certified technicians do all the dirty work," said Paul Cozzolino, CEO and founder at Fast Fix 123. "Providing a cloud-based antivirus and anti-malware solution that can be managed remotely has expanded the level of support we can deliver, and the feature-rich web-based console has allowed us to customize protection to the needs of the individual while putting customer protection at the forefront of our mission. Webroot has become Fast Fix 123's stay-at-home technician."
Unlike traditional security solutions, the actionable, real-time threat intelligence provided by Webroot SecureAnywhere solutions protects users against malware infections without the need for program patches or signature updates. This ensures that Fast Fix customers will be protected in real time the moment a new threat is identified anywhere in the world. Because Webroot protection is so light on system resources and most security scans take less than two minutes, users no longer have to interrupt their work to run a scan, increasing productivity.
"Webroot's innovative approach to protecting endpoints enables MSPs to offer their customers enhanced security and improved productivity thanks to reduced support overheads and minimal downtime as a result of viruses and malware," said Charles Tomeo, vice president of channel and technical sales at Webroot. "We are always open to acquiring new channel partners who are committed to delivering excellent solutions and support services to their customers, and Fast Fix 123 closely fits our strategic partnership model at Webroot. Not only does it have extensive technical expertise, its comprehensive service plans matches Webroot's strong customer focus and stellar product offerings."
