Boulder County Business Report Honors Webroot with Innovation Quotient Award

Webroot SecureAnywhere® Redefines Endpoint Security with IQ Award for Innovative Software Technology

Broomfield, CO – September 18, 2013

Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, was honored by the Boulder County Business Report with an Innovation Quotient (IQ) Award for its Webroot SecureAnywhere consumer and business security solutions. The IQ Awards recognize the most innovative new products and services developed by companies in the Boulder/Denver corridor.

Webroot designed its SecureAnywhere® solutions from the ground up to provide the most advanced, real-time protection available against malware and web-borne threats. Unlike traditional security solutions, Webroot SecureAnywhere installs in seconds, scans in about two minutes, and is always up to date against the latest threats.

“We are very pleased to be recognized with the IQ award as an innovation leader. There is a great deal of innovation occurring in and around Boulder County, as evidenced by the strong field of finalists,” said David Duncan, chief marketing officer at Webroot. “Most of our employees live and work in the Boulder/Denver area, so being recognized by business leaders in our local community is very gratifying for all of us.”

Webroot began transforming the security industry two years ago, and now offers over twenty security services based on its revolutionary cloud-based threat detection platform. During that time, Webroot received the prestigious Edison award, the first ever received by a security technology company, and Frost and Sullivan’s Innovation Best Practices Award.

Webroot also recently announced its global results for the fiscal year, in which it attained the top market-share position in the U.S. retail security software category, surpassed one million users of its mobile security solutions, and added thousands of new business customers worldwide.

About the IQ Awards

The Innovation Quotient (IQ) awards, now in its 14th year, honor the most innovative new products and services developed by companies and organizations based in Boulder and Broomfield counties, in the Denver and Boulder corridor, or for local divisions of national companies that were instrumental in the innovation.
