BOULDER, CO - June 24, 2008

Webroot, a leading security provider for the consumer, enterprise and SMB markets, today announced the Webroot® Authorized Service Partner Program, which extends Webroot’s antispyware and antivirus solutions to consumers and small businesses through their local service providers. Computer repair professionals across the country now have access to exclusive pricing, technical services and resources from Webroot to ensure their customers receive the best protection for their home and corporate computers.

“The threat landscape continues to intensify in volume and complexity with roughly one in three computer users today experiencing viruses, spyware or phishing. In many cases, the nature of these threats requires the expertise of trained professionals in order to resolve them,” said Paul Lipman, Senior VP and General Manager, Consumer Business, Webroot. “Partners of all sizes are more critical than ever to ensuring consumers and small businesses have the best protection available for their PCs. The Webroot Authorized Service Partner Program enables customers to receive world-class security technology and support from the computer repair professionals they know and trust within their own community.”

The Webroot Authorized Service Partner Program features a self-service Web portal where partners can place orders 24 hours a day, obtain diagnostic tools to easily diagnose customers’ computer problems, and participate in training webinars. In addition, program partners receive dedicated account management and free access to Webroot’s US-based customer service team to help resolve customers’ issues quickly and effectively.
