Broomfield, CO – March 27, 2014

Innovative Real-Time Threat Protection Revolutionizes PC Gaming Security with Maximum Gameplay Performance

Webroot, the market leader in cloud-based, real-time Internet threat detection, today announced it will be a Platinum Sponsor of the popular LANFest computer gaming series which holds events at sites across the United States. Webroot SecureAnywhere® AntiVirus for PC Gamers will be installed on each of the LANfest demo PC gamer systems to ensure they are protected with real-time virus and malware detection, without impacting performance or gameplay.

At LANFest events, hundreds of PC gaming enthusiasts gather to compete in individual and team-based tournaments, meet face-to-face with online teammates, visit exhibitor booths to experience the latest in computer technology, and win computer hardware and prizes from sponsors. Proceeds from these events are donated to a variety of local and national charities.

"Webroot has always had strong support from the gaming community because players know they will be protected without experiencing interruptions or system slow-down," said David Bennett, vice president of worldwide consumer sales at Webroot. "Being a LANFest Platinum sponsor is a great way for Webroot to expand our relationship with this important customer segment and support the charitable work of LANFest."

Webroot’s sponsorship kicks-off with LANFest Sacramento 2014, the PC gaming event that brings together the LAN (local area network) gaming community of the greater Sacramento region, from March 28 to 30, 2014 at the Intel campus in Folsom, California. In addition to showcasing Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus for PC Gamers, event attendees will have opportunities to win prizes such as free copies of Webroot software and other Webroot merchandise.
