In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

Webroot Business Endpoint Protection is a comprehensive, cloud-based solution for automated prevention, detection, response and fully managed remediation of endpoints. Rather than using conventional file unpacking and scanning, the solution intercepts files and processes pre-execution and then uses file characteristics and behaviors at the point of infection to predict, prevent, detect and respond to unknown threats. Real-time monitoring allows Webroot Business Endpoint Protection to be highly effective against APTs, advanced targeted attacks and countering exploits at the point of infection. Through interlinking Webroot technologies, predictive behavior recognition and machine learning combine to effectively stop malware and zero-day threats, while still protecting against phishing attacks, malicious applications, URLs, IPs and APTs.

Webroot’s unique APT and anti-malware approach, now bolstered by patented Webroot Evasion Shield technology, allows Webroot Business Endpoint Protection to expertly filter information in real-time into known ‘good,’ ‘bad’ and ‘undetermined’ categories. Most 'undetermined' categorizations are resolved in milliseconds, and particularly complex decisions in just a few hours. This three-tier approach minimizes false positives and negatives, and in combination with individual system monitoring and journaling it provides full remediation and surgical roll-back of malicious attacks with forensics for detailed investigations.

Webroot Business Endpoint Protection continues to distinguish itself from other competitors through unparalleled product innovation for both MSPs and SMBs. As threats become more complex and targeted, Webroot solutions such as Webroot Business Endpoint Protection will focus on providing true protection: blocking attacks earlier in the lifecycle to ensure customer confidence through advanced, automated solutions without the need for local or extensive security expertise. This evolution will be supported by the Webroot Threat Intelligence Platform: a unique multi-layered prediction, detection, protection and prevention asset backed by Webroot’s globally distributed team of threat researchers and data scientists and cloud-based machine learning system.
