The Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service protects users with proactive security layers that block web threats in the cloud before they enter your network. The cloud-based architecture makes it possible to directly authenticate users to the service for seamless enforcement and protection - regardless of their location. By preventing users from bypassing your web facilities, the service also ensures enforcement of essential HR, legal, compliance and duty of care obligations.
Webroot minimizes management complexity, while improving security, user visibility and flexible policy controls. A simple and intuitive cloud-based management console makes administration and enforcement of granular web security and web filtering policies completely straightforward.
Administrators may securely access the console from anywhere using a web browser for all operational tasks, including service configuration, deployment, policy management, and reporting. They can also grant full roles-based access - with easily customized permissions - to allow the direct access by Legal, HR and other non-IT staff.
Some users resent having their web behavior monitored and controlled, which causes them to look for ways to circumvent web security. Users who flaunt policies or work around monitoring and controls introduce significant security and compliance risks.
The Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service addresses these risks, which are common weaknesses of other solutions, with a design aimed at preventing circumvention. It ensures that all web traffic is directed, monitored and reported through the service. In particular, it reduces the risks associated with remote users and also enforces compliance in environments with highly IT literate users such as schools and colleges.

The Webroot Web Security Service uses proprietary Webroot IP Threat Protection to identify IP addresses associated with malicious activity. In addition to offering an effective way to prevent unknown web threats, this technology gives administrators better visibility into malicious inbound and outbound network traffic.
- Maximizing URL filtering
Many cloud-based web security solutions fail to prevent users from circumventing usage controls. Clever employees can simply go to anonymizing proxies and proxy bypass sites, which promise to help them get past "pesky URL or IP based filters."
- Reducing outbound data loss
The number of unique phishing sites has reached an all-time high. As the preferred way for attackers to gather confidential personal information about their targets, phishing and spear-phishing (targeted attacks on specific individuals or companies), represent a significant threat to anyone transacting business on the Internet.
- Full visibility web usage and reduced administration of reporting
In addition to malware protection, the need to accurately monitor and assess employees' web usage represents a key reason why organizations install web security. Web logs and management reports enable IT administrators to share information with executives and department heads. This enables organizations to implement sensible web usage policies that allow productive business activity while also blocking inappropriate use.
- Simplifying web security for remote users and multiple locations
A major advantage of a true cloud web security solution - coupled with cloud-based management - is visibility into all users and policy control over their entire web browsing activities. Traditional secure web gateways cannot manage users unless they can be monitored through a network presence. Consequently, many organizations must back-haul off-network users into the network via a VPN, which increases bandwidth demands and reduces web performance the further they are from the network.
