    1/11/2017

    Two years ago, SWAT Systems had had enough of its antivirus software. At the time, the Seattle-based MSP had tried a succession of antivirus products, and not one of them had worked as well as they needed. “The products were not a good fit for us,” recalls David Blake, Chief Technology Officer at SWAT. “Clients’ machines were still getting infected and the products were too resource intensive.”

  4. Webroot Phishing Threat Trends
    1/11/2017

    “Who would ever fall for that?” That’s what many people think when they see a phishing attempt, since less advanced types of phishing often involve laughable requests with terrible grammar and spelling to lure victims. Most of these are sent to a large number of recipients in hopes that a few will respond, as even the smallest margin of return is a success. However, the majority of today’s phishing attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, carefully crafted to obtain sensitive information from specific organizations, or even a particular person.

  7. Smarter Cybersecurity™ Solutions
    12/9/2016

    Perhaps more than any other type of software solution a reseller can offer to its customers, endpoint security products are characterized by a huge gap between their minimal purchase prices and the enormous costs they can entail for clients if they fail to work properly. The financial benefits of retailing cybersecurity solutions are modest (typical direct purchase prices are $24/year per seat, with VAR cost roughly $12), while the potential losses suffered by a VAR’s customer due to malware infections can be devastating.

  8. Why You Need Web And Endpoint Security To Protect Your Organization
    12/9/2016

    Using the Internet today is the single greatest risk factor to your employees’ devices becoming infected and your network being breached. It’s become especially risky for any organization with a highly mobile workforce, which these days is most of us. Recent research by Forrester 1 showed 60% of employees working from home a few times per month and 38% at least one day or more by week in organizations with over 1,000 employees. The risks from web usage are so high that security and risk professionals deem it critical that a secure web gateway should be an essential first line of defense.

Because of this, organizations have to focus on how these attacks successfully penetrate their network perimeter security defenses.
