Webroot Software, Inc., a leading security provider for the consumer, enterprise and SMB markets, today announced that it is reinforcing its position in the security Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) market by appointing one of the leading innovators in the category to its Board. Quentin Gallivan, the most recent CEO of Postini, grew the company to over 10-million users before its sale to search-engine giant Google.

"Quentin possesses unique expertise in the security SaaS market," said Peter Watkins, CEO, Webroot. "With his addition to our Board and the success of Webroot® Email Security SaaS, we are well-positioned to continue delivering channel-friendly perimeter security SaaS solutions to keep SMBs safe from Internet threats."

As CEO, Gallivan built Postini into a SaaS powerhouse, with over 35,000 companies using its service globally.

According to Gallivan, "The security SaaS market continues to see strong growth. SMBs need easy-to-manage, affordable security, which SaaS provides. I firmly believe that Webroot's strategy and solutions in this category will quickly establish them as the leader in this high-growth market."
