Webroot® Again Named Trail Blazer by Radicati Group

Broomfield, CO - January 30, 2014

Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, today announced that it has again been identified as a “Trail Blazer” in the Endpoint Security – Market Quadrant 2013 report by The Radicati Group. The independent analysis recognizes Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business – Endpoint Protection and Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business – Mobile Protection for their cloud-based threat detection, performance and manageability.

Continued growth in the volume of malware, and the need to support workforce mobility continues to leave businesses vulnerable to malware infection. A recent Radicati report indicated, infections are affecting each business user among the businesses surveyed an average of 3.9 times per year, and each incident required nearly 3 hours to clean up.

“The growing interest in cloud-based deployments is driven by an increasingly mobile workforce where users work from home or while on the road and need quick, secure access to the business network,” said Sara Radicati, president and CEO of The Radicati Group. “As a trail blazer, Webroot offers an innovative and effective endpoint protection solution that makes it easy for companies to mitigate significant business risks, and protect the expanding network perimeter.”

Webroot’s cloud-based threat detection, high performance, lightweight agents, and single, web-based point of control have changed the way businesses think about protecting mobile devices, PCs and servers. Using global threat intelligence, and innovative behavioral analysis, every user of Webroot SecureAnywhere solutions is protected the moment a new threat is detected anywhere in the world; regardless of whether they are on or off the corporate network.

“We are very gratified by The Radicati Group’s continued recognition of Webroot as a trail blazer,” said Dick Williams, CEO at Webroot. “Our double-digit growth and market share gains have also shown us that businesses are recognizing the value of a more effective, less disruptive approach to endpoint security.”

Radicati Market Quadrants rank vendors based on a four quadrant system, which includes Trail Blazers, Top Players, Mature Players and Specialists. Trail Blazers are defined as companies that offer cutting-edge technology and hold the power to dethrone current market leaders by growing their customer base and market awareness. Top Players are the current market leaders, who must fight complacency and continue product innovation to avoid being replaced by the next generation of Trail Blazers.
