Webroot Named 'Trail Blazer' by Radicati Group

Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ Technology Offers Fast, Effective, Cutting-Edge Endpoint Protection

BROOMFIELD, CO - June 6, 2012

Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, announced today that it has been positioned as a "Trail Blazer" in The Radicati Group's new report, "Endpoint Security Platforms – Market Quadrant 2012." The independent analysis praises Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ Business – Endpoint Protection for its efficiency, speed and cutting-edge technologies, remarking "We can easily see Webroot becoming a leader of cloud-based solutions in the endpoint security platforms market."

Key strengths highlighted in the report include:

  • Efficiency: The Radicati Group calls Webroot SecureAnywhere Endpoint Protection "one of the most efficient endpoint security platforms available" due to its fast antivirus scans and minimal impact on system resources.
  • Small install footprint: Because the solution doesn't rely on a local threat database, its install footprint is one of the lowest in the market at less than 4MB of disk space.
  • Management: The solution's cloud-based administration console reduces the need for an on-premises management server.
  • Ability to co-exist alongside other endpoint security solutions: Unlike other offerings, Webroot SecureAnywhere Endpoint Protection enables IT professionals to trial the product without uninstalling their existing security.

"The Radicati Group's recognition of Webroot as a trail blazer reinforces our mission to revolutionize an industry that is desperately in need of change," said Dick Williams, chief executive officer, Webroot. "We are aggressively growing our market share and customer base; Webroot SecureAnywhere technologies are now protecting more than three million endpoints and we're adding a new user every 15 seconds. The praise we are hearing from analysts, reviewers, partners, and customers who have switched from legacy solutions further affirms that the market is ready for a more effective approach to combating today's online threats."

Radicati Market Quadrants rank vendors based on a four quadrant system, which includes "Trail Blazers," "Top Players," "Mature Players" and "Specialists."
