Last month, Webroot entered into an agreement
to be acquired by Carbonite. Today, I'm happy to share that the acquisition of Webroot has closed.
I’ve heard both Mohamad Ali, President and CEO of Carbonite, and our Webroot GM John Post share their vision for our company with employees over the past few weeks. It's inspiring to hear Carbonite share that they're going to build on what's already working and what customers love. As a combined team, we'll continue to build on this foundation for more innovation in the future. Webroot and Carbonite will offer capabilities from cybersecurity and threat intelligence, to backup and recovery. We will protect you on the front lines from the most dangerous cyberattacks, and ensure your information is safe not only from cybercriminals, but also from accidents, natural disasters and other unexpected threats. We will bring these capabilities to both consumers and businesses, through the buying channels they prefer.
I know Mohamad has spent time listening to customer and partner feedback, and he realizes some people have questions about the future and how the products they use will be impacted. I’ve heard him consistently reinforce that Carbonite acquired Webroot because they admired what the team does and the value customers receive, and there are no plans to change what's been so successful.
There are lots of things Webroot and Carbonite can learn from each other, and I’ve already seen commitment to building on the lessons we’ve learned at Webroot. Together, we look forward to bringing the best solutions to market to solve your security and data protection challenges.
