Untangle Extends Partnership with Webroot

Untangle has announced a product integration partnership with Webroot Business Endpoint Protection.

The partnership sees Untangle’s Command Center bringing together the features of both Untangle NG Firewall and Webroot Business Endpoint Protection to provide partners with an end-to-end security solution across the whole network.

In a recent State of the Channel survey, 99 percent of channel partners indicated that cybersecurity, as an overall part of their business, will increase or stay the same in 2020. However, having many disparate IT solutions from multiple vendors makes life difficult for partners and MSPs. With this partnership, Untangle and Webroot offer an intuitive, centralized management process. Together, customers now have one place to go for network information across all sites.

Untangle partnered previously with Webroot to provide security services within NG Firewall including integrating Webroot Brightcloud Web Classification and Reputation API, Brightcloud IP Reputation Service and Brightcloud Threat Insights.

The integration, which is free of charge to Untangle customers, further enables admins to do more with a centralized solution. Untangle Command Center now offers greater visibility of all endpoints on the network that are registered with Webroot, plus details of all the devices detected by NG Firewall; the ability to initiate a Webroot Business Endpoint Protection scan; the status of the most recent Webroot endpoint scans including time, threats discovered, and remediation actions taken; and easy navigation to the Webroot Management Console.
