While fighting crime and warding off badies may sound more akin to comic book heroes than tech guys, our IT team certainly have super powers when it comes to protecting businesses from cyber attack – and even more so having become a Certified Partner for Webroot Cyber Security.
With rising threats and the increasingly sophisticated tactics of unscrupulous hackers, cyber security has never been more important. But thanks to our continued commitment to upskilling our teams, we have boosted the protection we deliver to businesses, giving them greater peace of mind in the security of their data.
Indeed, achieving the Webroot Cyber Security certification was no mean feat. Swapping masks, capes and inverted underpants for “civilian” wear, key members of our expert IT technical team – including IT Solutions Architect Jonathan Springham pictured above – underwent rigorous training and examinations, enabling Green Duck to achieve the international cyber security provider’s partner scheme for business endpoint protection.
So, what does this mean for the businesses we support?
Cyber attacks can have a devastating impact on business and no matter the size of an organisation, we all face the same level of threat. As such, we all need the same level of protection. It is our mission to find the best solutions for those we support and maximise our expertise through accreditation and partner programmes.
US-based Webroot are a world leader in cyber protection offering a range of software that provides real-time protection against cyber threats such as malicious emails, malware and viruses. The cloud-based solutions use machine-learning and other forms of AI to pinpoint known threats and flagging anomalies that may indicate an attack.
Endpoint protection software guards potential entry points to an IT system from cyber threat such as laptops, desktops, smartphones and servers. It protects critical systems, intellectual property, customer data, employees and guests from ransomware, phishing and other cyber attacks.
Webroot’s Business Endpoint Protection differs from most by being specifically designed for SMEs and managed IT service providers like us. It delivers next-generation protection so we’re thrilled to be able to team up and take down the enemy together.
