Consumers and Enterprises continue to choose anti-spyware provider Webroot, over the competition to protect their PCs and systems from the damaging effects of spyware, according to recent reports from The NPD Group and analyst firm The Radicati Group.

A recent report by The NPD Group for January 2006 found that Webroot had the number one share of Distributor security sales in January, displacing Symantec from the top slot.
