Business Computing and IT Week Give Top Honors to Spy Sweeper Enterprise in Year-End Enterprise Product Awards

Boulder, CO – December 14, 2005

Webroot Software's Spy Sweeper Enterprise received two esteemed awards from industry publications this month as the product continues to establish itself as the leading anti-spyware solution for enterprises of all sizes. Spy Sweeper Enterprise was recognized among the Best 50 Business Products of 2005 by Business Computing and also received the IT Week Labs Excellence Award from IT Week. Both awards pay homage to the top product picks selected by each publicationճ editors throughout the year.

"Spy Sweeper Enterprise continues to gain recognition not only as the best in class anti-spyware solution, but as a vital component of any enterprise security strategy, and the recent recognition by Business Computing and IT Week only builds on that consensus," said Vinay Goel, vice president worldwide marketing at Webroot.
