Webroot cuts 30 jobs; 15 in Broomfield

BROOMFIELD – Webroot Inc., a Broomfield-based Internet security company, laid off about 30 employees in a downsizing move Wednesday.
The layoffs, which amount to about 8 percent of Webroot’s staff, were made across a number of locations and were not focused on a specific product line or team, company spokewoman Genevieve Haldeman wrote in an email. She said 15 employees in Broomfield were let go.
Webroot was founded in Boulder in 1997 and develops online security software for the consumer and business market. In recent years, the company has pushed heavily into developing cloud-based security programs.
“Webroot has been focused on aligning its business and resources around its cloud-based security suite for consumers and businesses and pursuing strategic alliance opportunities around its security data services,” Haldeman wrote.
Webroot is privately held and declined to disclose information about employee severance and the financial state of the company. The number of customers for its flagship SecureAnywhere suite is growing, according to Haldeman.
“The company continues to see significant adoption of its Webroot SecureAnywhere solutions for both consumer and business users,” Haldeman wrote.
Webroot now employs about 350 people and has offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and Japan.
