WEBROOT CUSTOMER CASE STUDY » OURAY SPORTSWEAR LLC
Ouray Sportswear and Webroot
Team Up Against Malware
BACKGROUND
Ouray Sportswear LLC is a sportswear company based in the United States. The company employs over
180 people and is a provider of custom sportswear to all manner of organizations, from colleges and
companies to resorts. The company uses the latest printing techniques to deliver top quality products to
their customers.
THE CHALLENGE
Ouray had been using a well-known traditional endpoint solution to protect their systems and back
up their data, but over time they found that it was slowing down machines and causing disruptions
to the production environment. Server space began to run out, and thus the older software was
actually removed from critical servers to create space. Ouray was forced to make a choice between
security and efficiency; a choice that no business should ever have to make.

IT Specialist » Geomar Morales
It was clear that having no security at all was not an option. If the company was to continue
providing its top-notch service, its servers had to be totally protected from any possible cyberattacks.
THE SOLUTION
Ouray’s IT Specialist, Geomar Morales, knew he needed to find a solution that provided the
protection they needed without being a major drain on their systems. He began researching and
testing multiple security solutions, looking for one that was lightweight, effective, and easy to
deploy and manage. Morales found that Webroot stood out clearly from the competition.

CASE STUDY OURAY SPORTSWEAR LLC
“Not only is the client extremely lightweight, it was
NOT A RESOURCE HOG. I can run 100 scans on our main
production server and have no issues in regards to the
servers slowing down. The online user interface also
makes it very simple to control and see what is going on
with our network and PCs. I love knowing immediately
when a virus has infected one of our PCs, letting me
isolate the issue right away. Webroot has definitely won
me as a lifelong customer!”
Geomar Morales, IT Specialist at Ouray Sportswear
RESULTS
Morales deployed Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection
across their network and immediately saw a significant improvement over
their previous solution. Whereas before, scans had taken a great deal of time
and had caused issues to the overall performance of the company’s systems,
the light and effective Webroot solution could run scans on Ouray’s main
production server without any slowdown at all. Its instantaneous cloudpredictive malware protection and notification system enabled Morales to
easily monitor and remediate any infections that might get through, all through
an easy-to-use online console.
“The notification system has also been a blessing. It’s
awesome to know exactly when a PC is infected, so we
can stop the intrusion before it infects the rest of our
server.”
Geomar Morales, IT Specialist at Ouray Sportswear
In addition to the improved performance and protection offered by Webroot,
Ouray has saved money and time on security for the company. They have
also had a great experience with the friendly and knowledgeable support
teams at Webroot, who were always on standby to assist if needed. All of
this has allowed Morales to feel confident that Ouray’s network is in good
hands, and the company’s staff can focus on providing the best service
possible to their customers.
