“As high-profile ransomware and phishing attacks continue to make headlines, it’s become clear traditional security perimeters are no longer effective in protecting against today’s most complex threats. Our strong, continued growth demonstrates that our customers recognize the effectiveness of Webroot solutions to protect them from these sophisticated attack vectors.
