Carbonite is slowly going to dismember Webroot. The value of their purchase was in some of the technologies and infrastructure, and not the product name, product portfolio or talent. So expect more liquidations going forward and likely, the end of Webroot.

Thankfully I guess, as the kool aid dream will finally end.

Who knows. time will tell. i always had a feeling Webroot would not stand forever. its like the programm dosnt envolve over the last years like the competitors. its the same gui like 5? years ago(windows app), same methode to detect malware since years, nothing inovative. They just fall behind where others steeps ahead.
An example is how they just recently decided to develop their own anti-exploit and script protection feature something other vendors have more or less already had.

All these comments are overly dramatic, or false.

After every acquisition there are bound to be end of service for some products. It just happens.
At times, we are required to discontinue certain products and introduce others with greater market relevance.

We continue to see fragmentation in the mobile management market among key technologies such as device management, malware protection, application management, containment, and others. These technologies are better aligned to a corporate enterprise market, and we have determined Webroot Business Mobile Protection no longer serves market needs.
