ShieldX and Webroot Join Forces to Help Customers Defend the Cloud Against Onslaught of Cyberattacks

As Cyber Security Awareness Month kicks off, ShieldX Networks (ShieldX) and Webroot have joined forces to help enterprises address the growing number of cyberattacks in the Cloud. ShieldX is integrating Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence Services with APEIRO to help enterprises effectively identify and automatically respond to suspicious activities within multi-cloud environments. On October 25, the companies will host a joint webcast featuring a panel of experts who will shed light on what CISOs and other security professionals need to know about how the threat landscape has evolved over the past year. They will talk about what's not working, and provide actionable guidance on how to defend against the rising number and sophistication of cyberattacks.

"By combining Webroot's easily integrated, industry-leading threat intelligence solutions with the ShieldX APEIROTM platform, businesses can better protect themselves against modern cyber threats," said Hal Lonas, CTO of Webroot. "ShieldX shares our belief that a multi-layered and real-time approach is now essential to protect against the dissolving network perimeter. We look forward to expanding our partnership with ShieldX to provide our customers with an on demand, real-time security solution for the Cloud."

ShieldX APEIRO is the first to combine network-based security concepts with the latest application and infrastructure innovations to deliver the most scalable cloud security solution available on the market today. APEIRO provides visibility, automation and coordination across multiple cloud environments to provide customers with unparalleled, real-time protection against current network and data cyber threats.

"Providing a cloud security solution that delivers security, and is both scalable and budget friendly is of key importance to ShieldX. Together with Webroot, we are combining best-of-breed threat intelligence with real-time prevention of attacks," said Dr. Ratinder Ahuja, founder and CEO of ShieldX. "Now with APEIRO advanced security controls and micro-segmentation on demand, customers can automatically prevent, detect and stop suspicious activities in progress, before the damage is done."

The Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence Service offers a suite of enterprise-class security solutions that allows information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) security administrators to secure their critical infrastructure and devices against network-based threats. Unlike most other threat intelligence solutions, BrightCloud collects and analyzes threat intelligence across multiple vectors.
