EZ TECH ASSIST has partnered with WEBROOT to provide you with Webroot SecureAnywhere® Web Security Service.
Secure Web Gateways have traditionally been offered as on-site appliance and software solutions and have required users to either be within the corporate network or connected to it via a VPN. (This was the only way for Internet access policies and usage management to be enforceable.)
The Webroot SecureAnywhere® Web Security Service takes a different approach. It offers a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) Secure Web Gateway solution. Being a cloud-layer solution makes it far easier to enforce web access security policies, regardless of a user’s location. It also removes the need to use the corporate VPN to access the Internet, as full policy controls are individually enforced in the cloud instead.
This Internet access model is increasingly attractive, as on-premise solutions are costly to operate and maintain. It becomes particularly attractive if you have many locations, or a highly mobile workforce, which many of today’s organizations have. What follows are answers to some of the more common questions you may ask about the Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service, covering how it protects and enforces “acceptable Internet usage policies” and maintains your users’ productivity.
