While the number of malware executable files and potentially unwanted applications has dropped, plenty of other threats continue to multiply. Report after report warns businesses, government and consumers of increasingly sophisticated attacks. We’ve seen zero-day phishing URLs grow steadily through 2016, with almost twice as many detected in the fourth quarter as in the first quarter.

The Webroot® 2017 Annual Threat Report found that rising threats today include ransomware, exploit kits with ransomware, malicious Android apps and high-risk URLs, among others. Join us for a discussion on the evolving cyber threat landscape and the growing need to protect our clients with George Anderson, Product Marketing Director at Webroot and Len DiCostanzo, SVP of Channel Development at Autotask. 

This webinar will cover:

  • The collection of threat intelligence and its importance in combating cyber threats
  • Which threats are likely to be seriously problematic - and dangerous for MSPs - through 2017
  • What businesses need to know about the threat landscape
  • The resources and tools that MSPs can turn to in order to protect themselves and their clients
