Security vendor on the prowl for more resellers

Having recently established its international headquarters in Dublin, Webroot is looking to expand its partner programme to include ten Irish enterprise cloud security resellers.

The country is a key expansion territory for Webroot, where it aims to become the region’s leading software- as-a-service provider. It has already signed up Prologic Data Management and at the time of writing was in talks with a number of other potential
reseller partners.

“Our long-term plan is to expand across the whole of Europe, spearheading from Ireland,” Webroot’s EMEA channel director Ian Moyse told PCR. “We have an existing reputation as a 100 per cent channel company, capable of delivering a competitive advantage to its partners. This good reputation has allowed us to establish ourselves in Ireland very quickly. We’ve signed one partner so far and are in talks with several others, so expect to see a flow of positive announcements.”

Webroot is also growing its employee base to support the expansion, and is aiming to take on 50 people over the next 24 months. The firm’s Channel Edge partner programme recently earned a five-star rating from research group Everything Channel.
