Webroot Accelerates UK Channel Reach By Partnering with CDG | Awards

Innovative Cloud-based Endpoint Protection Expands Leading ICT Service Provider Capabilities

Broomfield, CO, USA and Sunningdale, Berkshire, UK - January 8, 2013

Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, today announced a new distribution partnership agreement with CDG, a recognised specialist in innovative software technologies and services for information and communication technologies (ICT) service providers. Webroot's new channel partnership with CDG builds on its existing partner network and further develops one of the most innovative distribution models in the UK.

As part of the new agreement, CDG will become a fully enabled distribution partner, with access to the full range of Webroot solutions. This includes the cloud-based Webroot® SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection, which provides the most advanced real-time protection available against both known and unknown malware. Unlike traditional security solutions, Webroot SecureAnywhere installs in seconds, scans in less than two minutes, and never requires security updates or signature database downloads which consume network bandwidth and leave users exposed. Webroot's unique client and cloud architecture allows customers to quickly gather critical collective endpoint data and provide real-time intelligence to protect against ever-evolving threats.

CDG has more than 25 years' experience supporting ICT service providers across the UK and EMEA. The new agreement signifies an exciting development for the IT channel and reinforces Webroot's position as the UK's leading cloud-based endpoint security provider.

"It is our business to provide our channel partners with only best-in-class innovative products which fit their individual end users' needs," said Chris Patton, Commercial Director from CDG Ltd. "The partnership with Webroot will mean that we are able to live up to that promise, offering Webroot products exclusively to our channel partner base. In Webroot we see a partnership built on the same values, with a clear emphasis on innovation and enterprise, and look forward to building on this in the UK."

"We are always exploring new market segments and open to acquiring new channel partners who are committed to delivering excellent solutions and support services to their customers," said Jeff Santelices, vice president of Webroot Worldwide Demand Fulfillment. "CDG closely fits our model of strategic partnership at Webroot. Not only do they have extensive, market-leading experience of the security solutions market, their innovation distribution approach matches Webroot's strong customer focus and stellar product offerings."
