The release of Console version 6.5.3 contains the following new and updated functionality:

Notification API 

Included in this release is access to the new Notification API which provides near real-time notifications via the existing Unity API. These include…


  • WSA “Bad” determination via Scan Summary
  • Web Threat Shield events
  • DNS events


As part of the enablement process, we’ll also ask customers to provide us with some details on how they plan to use the API. This information will then be analyzed by our Integrations team to further enhance all things Unity API.


Persistent states. 
The experience on the admin page has been improved with the introduction of persistent states.
Going forward sort order will persist across a user’s session. Admins can navigate away from a page and come back to the view they were previously working with.
We plan on continuing to introduce this functionality across other areas of the console in future releases.



Carbonite Endpoint version 10.10 introduces support for native 2FA. If a vault is enforced with 2FA, a user is prompted to enter a 6-digit authentication code during logins. The authentication code is sent to either the user’s registered email address or a third-party mobile authenticator app such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy, etc. that they have configured for use with the product.


Next, the Device Location page is enhanced to display error messages. In addition, the Device details page introduces two new fields to indicate location status IP Location and Enhanced Location. The Support Knowledge Base will include pages that feature a quick demo and explanation for how to use 2FA and Enhanced Location.


Furthermore, improvements are made to the search speed for devices and users in the vault Dashboard. Finally, all new on-premises installations require Microsoft SQL Server 2019 or SQL Server 2019 Express to support UTF-8 characters in the paths and filenames of policies.

This release of Unity API Event Notifications service which brings aboard ground-breaking API functionality for near real time alerts.


With the release of version 1.0.22160.2, we are bringing the following new features and enhancements:


  • Users can subscribe to the Unity Notifications service via the Webroot Management Console 6.5.3 allowing them to receive near real time alerts for subscribed events.
  • Leveraging the foundational Sky Events Store, the Unity Notifications API provides subscribed events in a “mailbox” store. Events are referenced by a position token. Optionally the notification of the event instance is also pushed to the User via Webhooks (Unity API calls a URI) in near real time. The User then fetches the events from the “mailbox” store on a predetermined or ad-hoc schedule for consumption, facilitating timely remediation for any status changes.
  •  Completely new notifications service introduced to the end-user 
  • Event types currently supported:
    • Endpoint File Detection (malware detection)
    • Web Threat Shield URL Action (blocked URLs)

Great to see Webroot continue to innovate their product stack!

The new Android app is a disaster!

It's also quite unhealthy to find the (almost childish) excuses of the new Google terms for Android, because all the other Android security suites work well and have kept a lot of functions.
