Web Security and Email Security Vendor Voted for by the Channel in Prestigious UK Award
Bracknell, UK., November 20, 2009
Webroot, a leading Internet security provider for the enterprise, SME and consumer markets, was runner-up 'Security Vendor of the Year' at last night’s Channel Awards, hosted by Computer Reseller News (CRN).
The Channel Awards are highly coveted within the industry because recipients are chosen based on a public voting system amongst the IT and business community.
The accolade follows an extremely eventful and successful period for Webroot. The company’s continued 100% channel commitment has played a role in helping to drive widespread adoption of the company’s innovative Web and Email security software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions in 2009. Last month the company announced new business growth of 180%, fuelled largely by increased demand for Webroot® Web Security Service, which provides URL and web content filtering, as well as protection against web-based malware for corporate and mobile users. As a result, Webroot’s reseller partners have benefitted from continuous growth and profitability throughout an otherwise challenging economic period.
Webroot’s achievement in the Channel Awards follows its success in being named Messaging Product of the Year at the 2009 Network Computing Awards. Over the past year, Webroot has seen the signing of many brand name customers through its channel such as Everton Football Club, The Ritz, Toshiba and The College of Law. The company has also recently signed a number of new partners including Network Box UK and Nasstar plc. This is the third year in a row that Webroot has been named a finalist in the Security Vendor of the Year category at the Channel Awards, and it won the title in 1997.
Webroot provides industry-leading security solutions to consumers, enterprises and small to medium-sized businesses worldwide. Based in Boulder, Colorado, Webroot has operations across North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific territories. For more information visit http://www.webroot.co.uk or call 0870 3516 788.
