Webroot buys Cyberflow Analytics, to expand in San Diego
Webroot, the market leader in next-generation endpoint security and threat intelligence, has announced it has acquired the assets of CyberFlow Analytics, an innovator in applying data science to network anomaly detection.
This acquisition enhances Webroot’s ability to address the explosion of internet-connected devices and an increasingly complex threat landscape. The company plans to expand its operations in San Diego.
Adding the FlowScape network behavioral analytics solution extends Webroot’s leadership in machine learning-based cybersecurity to the network layer.
As malware is now overwhelmingly polymorphic and advanced persistent threats (APTs) mask their activities within everyday network noise, SaaS-based FlowScape adversarial analytics and unsupervised machine learning enables Webroot to further reduce time to classify and address threats.
“Today, one of the only things attackers can’t find out about your network is what’s normal,” said Dick Williams, Webroot CEO. “This solution can identify and alert on potentially malicious activity that deviates from normal traffic in milliseconds.”
