Emphasizing The Endpoint

Carbonite and Webroot will create a new approach to addressing one of today's most vulnerable security challenges – the endpoint – through a combination of protection and recovery, Mohamad Ali, Carbonite's president and CEO, said during a call with investors after the deal was announced Thursday.

Both companies target the same end customer with simple yet powerful offerings, Ali said, with Webroot bringing a growing MSP channel and Carbonite bringing its own VAR channel to the table.

"This acquisition makes a lot of strategic and financial sense," Ali said. "I am very excited about this transaction, and am thrilled to get to work executing on making this transaction an overwhelming success."
