Webroot Introduces the Security Industry's First Automated Anti-Spyware Research System One Hour of Automated Spyware Research Equals 80 Hours of Manual ResearchBOULDER, Colo., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot Software, Inc., a producer of award-winning privacy, protection and performance software, today introduced the anti-spyware industry's first automated spyware research system designed specifically to root out and identify spyware anywhere on the Web. Called "Phileas," the system is a significant advance in the battle against spyware, identifying spyware, adware and other types of potentially unwanted software faster and more comprehensively than any other current research method. "This new technology represents the migration of spyware research from secondary research to primary research and now to an automated technology-based research," said David Moll, CEO of Webroot. "Unlike other security research techniques which rely on 'honey-pots' and other passive threat data collection methodologies, this system is designed specifically for the active pursuit of spyware and potentially for other security threats."
The only easy day was yesterday.
