Dublin, 8th February 2012: Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, has opened its new international headquarters in George’s Quay Plaza. The company has expanded its professional sales, support and financial services teams in recent months, successfully recruiting more than a dozen professionals to manage a growing customer and partner base across Europe.

Justin Endres, who was recently appointed as vice president of worldwide enterprise sales and operations for Webroot, commented, “The city of Dublin offers a highly talented workforce, an extraordinary culture, and a diverse array of thriving industries. The opening of our new downtown office is exciting for a number of reasons; not only is it a world-class facility designed to accommodate our ongoing growth, but the location is geographically ideal for servicing our partners and customers across EMEA. I look forward to engaging some of Ireland’s top talent as Webroot continues to revolutionize the Internet security industry.”

Congratulating the company on the opening of its new international HQ, IDA Ireland CEO, Barry O’Leary said “Since first announcing the decision to establish in Dublin in 2010, the Irish operation has quickly become a strategically important centre for Webroot.  We look forward to working closely with the company as it continues to grow and strengthen its international business operations.”

Webroot’s Dublin operations were responsible for approximately 35 percent of the company’s European bookings in the last quarter of 2011. The company plans to further expand its Dublin operations in the areas of threat research, sales, inventory and fulfilment, marketing, and localisation.
