Webroot® Bests Norton and Others in Total Unit Sales at Retail

Webroot Captures 26.8% of the PC Security Market in May to Take Retail Sales Lead

Boulder, CO – June 30, 2008

Webroot, a leading provider of security software for the consumer, enterprise and SMB markets, today announced that it has taken the top spot in Publisher Sales in units for the entire security product market for the month of May by capturing 26.8% of the retail security market.

The market share comparison is the result of the latest numbers being reported by The NPD Group, a leading global provider of consumer and retail market research information. In the latest results, Webroot led Symantec and Trend Micro while thoroughly dominating McAfee and Microsoft. The report included sales from leading software retailers such as Best Buy, Circuit City and Amazon.com.

"We believe the latest market data represents a clear indication that consumers are not satisfied with under-performing desktop security products that can dramatically slow down the performance of the PC as they consume significant processing power," said Paul Lipman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Consumer Business Unit at Webroot. "Webroot's products such as Spy Sweeper and Webroot AntiVirus with AntiSpyware have demonstrated superior performance and protection and we believe they provide home PC users with a superior choice."

Webroot PC security products are used by over 6 million customers and have received numerous press awards including 9 PC Magazine Editor's Choice awards. With a broad portfolio of security products including Webroot Spy Sweeper, Webroot AntiVirus with AntiSpyware, Webroot Parental Controls, and Webroot Window Washer, Webroot provides multiple layers of PC protection with powerful, high-performance security solutions that are easy to use.
