Continuum Partners with Webroot for Smarter, Faster and More Effective Cybersecurity for its MSP Partners’ SMB Clients

BOSTON – Feb. 18, 2015Continuum®, the industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, is partnering with Webroot, the market leader in intelligent cybersecurity for endpoints and collective threat intelligence, to deliver Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business - Endpoint Protection, to its MSP partners. MSPs can leverage Webroot’s cloud-based security to easily deploy and manage endpoint security across multiple domains, devices, customers and offices from a single, centralized console in single-pane window view.

“Webroot SecureAnywhere is a smart, fast and very effective choice in antivirus and antimalware protection, using cloud data centers to instantly protect all users from new threats with endpoint security in real-time,” said Dee Zepf, Vice President of Products and Technical Services at Continuum. “Continuum has chosen to bundle Webroot with its RMM product because it saves time and helps partners to operate more efficiently and most importantly, our partners have asked for it.”

Continuum is bundling SecureAnywhere into its intelligent Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform that offers proactive problem resolution backed by the company’s industry-leading Network Operations Center (NOC) and Service Desk that resolves thousands of alerts, 24x7x365. By utilizing Continuum’s “smart-sourcing” model and outsourcing most day-to-day IT functions, Continuum’s MSP partners are able to focus on strategic initiatives that generate more revenue.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Continuum,” said Charlie Tomeo, Vice President of Channel and Technical Sales at Webroot. “We recognize that traditional endpoint security has created many challenges for MSPs. With Webroot’s cloud-based security solutions and Continuum’s industry-leading services, MSPs will be able to offer their customers better protection and performance, as well as increased operating margins by significantly reducing the complexities and inefficiencies associated with managing a traditional security solution.”

Because Webroot’s threat intelligence resides in the cloud, SecureAnywhere installs in seconds, scans in less than two minutes and never requires security updates or signature database downloads which consume network bandwidth and leave users exposed. SecureAnywhere includes a simple, feature-rich, web-based centralized console which makes it easier for partners to manage and protect client endpoints across mobile devices, multiple domains and geographically dispersed customers and offices. This simplified management means MSPs can reduce costs, boost productivity and increase recurring revenue streams.

Continuum is hosting a partner-only webinar, “Webroot & Continuum: What You Need to Know,” on Monday, February 23, 2015, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST to ensure partner readiness.
