Webroot, the Internet security provider for the consumer, enterprise and SMB markets, has announced its plans to recruit an additional ten strategic channel partners in Ireland, to expand the availability of Webroot Web Security Service, Webroot Email Security Service and Webroot Email Archiving Service.
"Webroot recently opened its international headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and we are extending our award-winning Channel Edge Partner Programme to ten of Ireland's leading enterprise cloud security resellers," said Ian Moyse, EMEA Channel Director, Webroot. "This strategic move will enable us to develop a strong foothold within the Irish IT security market and establish Webroot as a leader in Ireland."
Moyse continues, "Ireland is a key growth territory for Webroot. Currently there's no clearly established leader in security as a service in the region. Webroot brings a whole host of opportunities and benefits to the Irish channel with our partner programme, which provides partners with the opportunity to increase revenue quickly and benefit from comprehensive training tools. In addition, our partners can leverage award-winning services from Webroot backed up by 24/7 technical and sales support. Webroot's security as a service solutions have already proven themselves to bring benefits of function, protection and reduced operating cost to businesses across the UK."
Dermot Coyle, Owner of leading Northern Ireland reseller Prologic Data Management Ltd, supports Webroot's significant positioning in the country. He says, "We scrutinise every aspect of benefit a new partner is able to deliver and Webroot certainly offers an exciting proposition for Prologic and other Irish resellers. Their leading technology, strong partner programme, proven customer attraction levels and outstanding reputation combine to make Webroot an extremely attractive partner. We're delighted to be supporting Webroot's Irish expansion and applaud their investment in the region which we are sure will reap dividend for us all as SaaS becomes a vital part of the IT security landscape in Ireland."
Webroot is a founding member of EuroCloud, Europe's first ever SaaS and cloud services business community.
