Webroot Continues to Re-Define Enterprise-Class Security While Making it Affordable for Midmarket Companies by Adding Substantial New Capability Over Appliance and Software Solutions

BOULDER, CO - May 12, 2008

Webroot, a leading provider of security solutions for the consumer, enterprise and SMB markets, today announced its Webroot® E-mail Security Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions were recognized by the Midsize Enterprise Summit's Midmarket Innovation Awards. Webroot was named among the top nominees in the "Best Midmarket Solution: Services" category.

"In 2008, Webroot estimates that every business email inbox will receive at least 42,000 spam emails. Our goal is to provide security SaaS solutions that offer better protection against the rapidly evolving threats and spyware delivered through email as well as the Web. This nomination further supports our approach to SaaS-based perimeter security, which delivers highly effective security without the cost and maintenance of appliances and software," said Mike Irwin, COO, Webroot. "Because our security experts are managing the security, customers will immediately benefit from our latest innovations without the costly and slow process of upgrading appliances and on-premise software solutions."

Webroot was nominated for the Midmarket Innovation Award by senior IT decision-makers who selected the company's security SaaS solutions from among the hundreds of technology products presented at last week's Summit.

Webroot Security SaaS solutions provide businesses with enterprise-class security against email and Web threats with lower cost of ownership and better manageability. Since the hosted solutions are managed and updated in the cloud, they require no extra hardware, software or personnel resources, enabling organizations to recoup valuable network bandwidth and focus their resources on their core business.
