BROOMFIELD — Webroot Inc. holds a 31 percent share of the online security software market for retail companies, according to October data from The NPD Group Inc., a retail industry information provider.

That puts Broomfield-based Webroot in the No. 2 spot in its industry in terms of retail customers, the company said in a press statement. Webroot has Best Buy and Target as customers, as well as other well-known retailers.

Kaspersky Lab, a Russian-based company with U.S. headquarters in Woburn, Massachusetts, recorded the highest market share in the NPD survey with a 37 percent share.

“We are thrilled to take the second-place position, but we are far from complacent,´ said David Bennett, vice president for Webroot’s worldwide consumer sales, in a press statement.
