Sydney, Australia – November 7, 2013

Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, today announced an agreement with Australia-based distributor, Bluechip Infotech, giving its nationwide network of resellers access to market-leading endpoint and mobile security solutions from Webroot. The partnership with Bluechip Infotech will significantly increase Webroot’s business in Australia, providing resellers with more purchasing options and improved sales and service while delivering better security protection to their customers.

By incorporating Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business – Endpoint Protection into its security portfolio, Bluechip Infotech gives resellers the edge by delivering a true cloud-based endpoint security solution. Due to Webroot’s high renewal rate, resellers will be able to build a strong recurring revenue stream. By providing access to a broad network of resellers focused on the small/medium business, education, and retail markets, the addition of Bluechip Infotech to the Webroot channel network will further expand Webroot’s presence across Australia.

“The partnership with Webroot will enable Bluechip to provide a more comprehensive and effective security solution to our channel partners,” said Johnson Hsiung, managing director at Bluechip Infotech. “We pride ourselves on providing high-quality and cost-effective solutions to our partners and enabling resellers to strengthen their business as a result. This view allows us to bring the channel and vendors closer together and provide better customer service and protection.”

“Businesses are switching to Webroot solutions because they demand better protection of their critical information against increasingly complex threats,” said Crispin Kerr, managing director of Webroot Asia-Pacific. “We needed a distribution partner who shared our vision, and Bluechip InfoTech was selected based on their dedication to providing the best solutions and service, and their strong reseller network across the Australian market. We have experienced tremendous year-over-year channel sales growth in the region, and are looking forward to working with Bluechip InfoTech to continue this momentum.”
