Webroot's double digit road to success

Webroot has just announced double-digit year-over-year bookings growth for both the quarter and the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016. The company's business segment bookings also grew at 36% for the year.

What drove the record results?

According to Webroot, cybersecurity solutions by managed service providers (MSPs), an expanding network of strategic partnerships and an ever growing market share in the consumer segment are all at the heart of its success.

In the past year, Webroot added over 2,000 MSP customers, which brought the grand total to over 6,000. The company says that MSPs are rapidly adopting Webroot’s SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection because the service is easy to deploy and manage.

Webroot has also added new partners and extended on its existing relationships with companies that integrate Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence services into their offerings.

Citrix and Lynx Software are two of Webroot’s newest partners, they join Cisco, Aruba, F5 Networks, Palo Alto Networks and other industry leaders who rely on Webroot threat intelligence to defend their customers.

The company also credits its strong commitment to innovation and customer success as a driving force behind the record results.

Dick Williams, Webroot CEO, says the company continues to achieve record growth because of its effectiveness in threat protection and strong partnerships.

“Our cloud security platform enables us to rapidly innovate new cybersecurity solutions to protect against today’s most malicious threats, and then we leverage partnerships to get those innovations to market with speed and efficiency,” says Williams.

“No other company in this space comes close to our track record of innovation and profitable growth.”
