ConnectWise Delivers Webroot DNS Protection to MSPs

ConnectWise is distributing Webroot‘s SecureAnywhere DNS Protection directly to its global managed service provider (MSP) partners.

The solution provides granular web-filtering capabilities that protect against malicious websites, provide real-time usage reports, and give MSPs the ability to set global web-access policies to block sites that its client base does not need. Partners can manage it through the same Global Site Manager console they use for Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection.

ConnectWise is Webroot’s first remote management and monitoring (RMM) partner to sell DNS Protection directly to its MSP partners. Purpose-built for MSPs, DNS Protection enables administrators to manage both endpoint and DNS products across their entire client install base via a single management console.

Webroot scans the entire IPv4 space and in-use IPv6 addresses to classify over 95 percent of the internet at least three times per day.

“A solution that combines endpoint and DNS-based web security helps protect businesses from threats while lowering overall support costs,” said Charlie Tomeo, vice president of Worldwide Business Sales, Webroot. “ConnectWise has created a loyal following within the MSP community, and we are thrilled to expand our partnership to offer customers better protection and performance.”

Gavin Gamber, vice president of Channel Sales and Alliances, ConnectWise, added: “At ConnectWise, we are dedicated to helping technology solution providers grow their businesses, and that’s why we partner with Webroot. Together, we can offer MSPs solutions that protect against the increasing amount of cybersecurity threats that plague companies every day. With the combination of DNS and endpoint protection, comprehensively integrated into ConnectWise Automate, formerly LabTech and ConnectWise Manage, this is the type of solution that makes our partners successful.”
