Webroot Kicks Off Holiday Retail Shopping Season With Top-Selling PC Security Product

Webroot Takes the Lead over Black Friday with 32.8 Percent of the Retail Security Market

Boulder, CO – December 9, 2009

Webroot, a leading security provider for the consumer, enterprise and SMB markets, today announced Webroot® AntiVirus with Spy Sweeper was the top-selling security product in the U.S. retail market for the week ending November 28, 2009, capturing 32.8 percent of unit share, according to The NPD Group’s Weekly Tracking Service. This period includes retail sales on Black Friday, when the holiday shopping season traditionally begins.

The market share data reflects the latest numbers reported by The NPD Group, a leading global provider of consumer and retail market research information.

"Consumers today want Internet security that protects their personal and financial information online without slowing down their computers. This is especially top of mind during the holidays when over two-thirds of consumers we recently surveyed plan to buy at least half of their holiday gifts online," said Paul Lipman, senior vice president and general manager of Webroot's Consumer business. "The latest data from NPD demonstrates that consumers prefer the superior protection and performance of Webroot AntiVirus with Spy Sweeper over products from any other provider of consumer security."

Webroot currently provides protection for over 7 million consumer PCs and has received numerous press awards including 10 PC Magazine Editor’s Choice awards. With a broad portfolio of security products, including Webroot® Internet Security Essentials and Webroot® Spy Sweeper, the company provides multiple layers of protection that enable individuals to safely bank, shop, search, download music and store digital files online.
