I have exciting news to share with our Community. Webroot has entered into an agreement
to be acquired by Carbonite, a leader in cloud-based data protection for businesses. We expect the deal to close within the first calendar quarter of 2019.
I believe this is great news for you as a Webroot customer and advocate.
When surveyed, SMBs and MSPs consistently name endpoint security and backup/data recovery services among their top priorities. We see great potential in bringing a coordinated solution set to market that becomes your go-to security platform. Whether you buy from Webroot or a trusted channel partner.
Likewise for consumers, the combined Webroot and Carbonite will better protect you, your family and your most sensitive data.
Carbonite shares a similar vision, solution philosophy, commitment to the customer and company culture. Both companies focus on easy-to-use and deploy, cloud-based solutions that address the complicated cybersecurity issues facing individuals and business every day. Additionally, both companies pride themselves on excellent customer care and support.
Our commitment to you and a high level of customer service during this transition will not change. In fact, you’ll continue to hear from and interact with the normal Webroot Community team alongside product and product marketing managers that listen and respond here on a regular basis.
While we must operate as independent companies until the transaction closes, after that stage we look forward to sharing many more detailed updates with you.
If you have any questions during this transition process, please comment on this post or reach out to your Community team.
