Webroot commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a survey study of 161 North American and European IT security decision-makers. The purpose of the study is to understand the current state of endpoint security strategies across enterprises and SMBs, as well as identify key trends and market directions for endpoint security. This study took a detailed look at how organisations deploy endpoint security products, their common practices, pain points, and challenges.

This paper looks at this problem and how Webroot, by going back to the drawing board on countering
malware threats, is revolutionisng endpoint protection and solving the issues that hinder existing
endpoint security solutions.
