Webroot ‘Scores’ as Chosen Provider of Email Security SaaS to Premier League

Bracknell, U.K. 17 March 2009 — Webroot, a leading security provider for the consumer, enterprise and SME markets, today announced that it has been chosen by the Premier League to provide its award-winning Webroot Email Security SaaS solution.

Premier League, widely regarded as the elite club competition in world football, has an essential requirement for 24/7 secure email as its employees and management communicate with football officials, clubs and key sponsors, worldwide.

Simon Thunder, Head of IT at Premier League, said “Email is a significant form of communication for us. As a prominent brand, we are targeted by spammers, often receiving up to 50,000 spam emails a day. With Webroot Email Security SaaS, our email users are protected against spam, viruses and other external threats. We have instantly seen an improvement in productivity and can now be sure of a highly accurate and secure email filtering service. This is imperative in such a fast moving environment such as ours.”

Thunder continues “Here at the Premier League, we had become aware of a decline in the service provided by our previous security SaaS solution. Infosec Technologies, a partner to Webroot, offered us a free trial of the Webroot Email Security SaaS solution. Not only have we been impressed by the greater manageability and better protection, but we are delighted by the exceptional customer support, all of which has instilled our own IT team with a renewed confidence in email security.”

The Premier League has joined a growing number of new customers that have switched from other service providers in preference of Webroot’s advanced security service offerings.

Peter Watkins, CEO, Webroot said, “We are pleased to announce that Premier League has chosen Webroot Email Security Software-as-a-Service to protect its email communication. Being selected by such well-established brands, such as Premier League, to provide a secure environment for their business is testament to the development of our true SaaS service, the only one to include Webroot’s award-winning anti-spyware technology.”
