The Premier League has chosen the Webroot Email Security SaaS solution to secure its email.


It required round-the-clock security for its employees and management that allowed them to communicate with worldwide officials, clubs and key sponsors.


Peter Watkins, CEO of Webroot said: “Being selected by such well-established brands, such as Premier League, to provide a secure environment for their business is testament to the development of our true SaaS service.”


Simon Thunder, head of IT at the Premier League, said: “Email is a significant form of communication for us. As a prominent brand, we are targeted by spammers, often receiving up to 50,000 spam emails a day. With Webroot Email Security SaaS, our email users are protected against spam, viruses and other external threats.


“We have instantly seen an improvement in productivity and can now be sure of a highly accurate and secure email filtering service. This is imperative in such a fast moving environment such as ours.”
