Webroot Updates Security Software

Boulder, Colorado-based Webroot reported Tuesday that the firm has released new versions of the firm's software-as-a-service security products, Webroot Web Security SaaS and Webroot Email Security SaaS. According to the firm, the new releases add such features as web browsing quoates, and email encyrption. The two products are the hosted versions of the firm's security software. Key among the updates to the software is a new feature which allows companies to monitor Internet use policies for bandwidth, time spent surfing, and the number of Web sites visited; the company appears to be targeting businesses which are setting much more strict limits on Internet usage by their employees.
