Webroot, a leading provider of security solutions for the consumer, enterprise and SME markets, has been honored with the accolade of ’Messaging Product of the Year’ for the Webroot® Email Security SaaS solution at the Network Computing Awards, held on March 19, 2009 in London.

Out of 24 categories overall, Webroot was nominated and short listed in six, including 'Security Product of the Year' and 'Environmental Product of the Year'.
