BROOMFIELD, Colo., Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot, a Carbonite (NASDAQ: CARB) company, has been recognized as a "Trail Blazer" in The Radicati Group's Endpoint Security Market Quadrant for 2019. This is the eighth year in a row that Webroot has received this placement.
The report evaluates key vendors in the endpoint security space on functionality and strategic vision. According to Radicati, a Trail Blazer is a vendor who offers advanced, best-of-breed technology and has the potential to disrupt a market. In particular, Radicati cites several key strengths of Webroot® Business Endpoint Protection, including its ease of management, the small installation footprint, light system performance, the ability to work with any browser and coexist in environments with other endpoint security platforms. Additionally, Radicati lauds Webroot for its Dwell Time reporting, which informs IT staff at which point in time an endpoint was infected and how long it took Webroot protection to detect and remediate the threat—effectively enabling better post-breach forensics and analysis.
The Radicati Market Quadrant demonstrates how top vendors in endpoint security compare to each other by placing them within four different categories: Top Players, Trail Blazers, Specialists and Mature Players.
Trail Blazers offer advanced, best-of-breed technology in some areas of their solutions. Trail Blazers also have the potential for "disrupting" the market with new technology and are most likely to grow into Top Players.
Vendors are positioned according to two criteria:
Functionality – the breadth and depth of the solution's features.
Strategic Vision – including a thorough understanding of customer needs, the ability to deliver through attractive pricing and channel models, solid customer support and strong ongoing innovation.
Webroot solutions provide best-in-class efficacy against the growing number of threat vectors with a comprehensive suite of products that are simple to deploy and manage.
