NEW: Webroot Evasion Shield

Webroot Evasion Shield

It’s coming folks! We’re starting the rollout of the new Webroot® Evasion Shield. This critical security layer uses brand new, patented Webroot technology to detect, block, and quarantine evasive script attacks—including file-based, fileless, obfuscated, or encrypted threats—to help businesses become more resilient against advanced cyberattacks. The shield will also prevent malicious behaviors from executing in PowerShell, JavaScript, VBScript, and more, which are often used to launch evasive attacks. Get an overview of how it works in the video below.

Who’s going to get the new shield?

Every Webroot Business Endpoint Protection customer will benefit from the new shield. It doesn’t cost extra and you don’t have to install it separately. However, please make sure all your endpoints are using the 9.0.28.00 version of the Business Endpoint Protection agent or higher. Earlier agent versions will not fully support Evasion Shield malicious script protection.

Will the new shield start protecting me right away?

The shield is turned OFF by default. We designed it that way because many admins use legitimate custom scripts in their environments, and nobody likes a false positive. We recommend enabling the shield with the Detect and Report setting first, so you can see all the scripts that are currently running and whitelist any that you don’t want flagged. (See more on this in our FAQs, linked below.)
