BROOMFIELD, CO - December 10, 2014

Webroot, the market leader in cloud-based, real-time internet threat detection, today announced that it has again been identified as a "Trail Blazer" in the Corporate Web Security – Market Quadrant 2014 report by The Radicati Group. The independent analysis recognizes Webroot SecureAnywhere® Web Security Service for its cloud-based threat detection, predictive threat intelligence and robust content filtering.

According to the 2014 Radicati Group report, corporate cloud-based security solutions like Webroot are in demand, in part due to the vast proliferation of mobile devices and increase in the number of employees working remotely. As the number of mobile workers accessing the company's private network is increasing, identity and access management has become of prime importance.

"Protecting against malware should be a high priority for all organizations. Once inside a network, the propagation of malware can take down the entire system," said Sara Radicati, president and CEO of The Radicati Group. "With the Web Security market expected to grow over $2.7 Billion in 2018, Webroot is one of a few purely cloud-based Web security providers and offers an easily deployable Corporate Web Security solution, which adds to their competitive advantage."

The Webroot® SecureAnywhere Web Security Service is used by thousands of organizations to protect their networks and employees – whether on the corporate network or roaming – and to enforce policies for internet use. It is part of a suite of cloud-based internet security-as-a-service solutions for businesses that includes Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection and Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Mobile Protection.

"Web Security is a strong growing market, and our services have become crucial because it addresses the most critical problems faced by the companies in the current work scenario, supporting the mobile work force," said Dick Williams, CEO of Webroot.
