Webroot Business Endpoint Protection is used across our entire organization. We use it on a mix of PCs, Servers, and Macs. It is one of the security tools we use in our organization. It protects our machines from viruses and malware. It has proven reliable, easy to install and administer and does not consume as much memory as other products.
  • Admin console.
  • Lightweight client.
  • Deployment.
  • Monitoring statuses.
  • Conducting remote scans/cleaning.
  • Has a tendency to randomly duplicate machine names.
  • Once added, machines cannot be deleted, even if they are deactivated and never had a virus incident.
  • Policy management could be improved, it's not intuitive enough how to create/edit them.
Webroot is very well suited for being resource-efficient on Windows machines. It is seamless to the end-users as it runs reliably. Even when we set off a remote scan/clean of a machine, the user never realizes this and is not affected by that procedure. On the other hand, it should not be solely relied on in the ever-increasing threat landscape. Add at least another solution. One solution cannot catch everything, unfortunately.
We have not had to use Webroot support much over the years. The one or two times we did we were referred to online documentation and in a somewhat condescending manner in one case and in another case, the support person did not demonstrate much knowledge of their product and referred us to the user community for support.

We have been using Webroot for approximately 2 years now with very few issues and a few problems caught and resolved before they were a hindrance to our business. It is our primary antivirus, and is very easy to use and intuitive to run.
  • Anti malware, detects and quarantines anti malware using the latest heuristics
  • Anti virus is very light and the web based database keeps the interface clean and light at the end points with a robust back bone to identify threats
  • The live scan and central user interface is a great addition to the software and very integral to identifying issues early on.
  • I have not seen any issues to date
For a small to medium sized business this is a great piece of software to have and is easy to understand and use. I cannot speak for scalability to larger businesses. I believe the price point for smaller businesses might be a factor.

Used throughout the entire organization as one of our one and only antivirus package, Webroot is a lightweight, and easy to install throughout your organization. A single pane of glass allows IT to quickly see any issues that may arise and complete remediation steps within moments. After initial installation, it automatically runs your first scan and you are up and running in minutes.
  • Fast deployment, lightweight and is always up-to-date with virus definitions deploying in the background.
  • Online management portal allows the administrator to manage the console from anywhere there is a web connection.
  • Handy browser plugin alerting the end user if a site is trustworthy.
  • The new administrator portal is a bit cumbersome and takes some getting used to.
Webroot is a great tool for SMBs that are looking for a product that is easy to deploy and maintain. The lightweight agent doesn't contain any bloatware and that makes for quicker scanning capabilities. I would think anyone looking for a stable, easy to use antivirus program should consider Webroot and at least download a trial and try it.

Webroot SecureAnywhere is being used throughout my organization and with client's, as I manage their security at this time. It addresses the problem of network and machine security.
  • Price point is great for businesses of all sizes
  • Administration interface for deploying and managing clients is easy to use
  • Does a great job of detecting threats and stopping security issues
  • Reporting features of the application and portal could be better
  • Bettering tiering of the pricing structure as it could be better for partners and clients
I think the product is well suited for any business of any size and/or type.

We use Webroot SecureAnywhere as a security solution for our Managed Service customers. It addresses the need for antivirus, anti-malware, and other threat prevention, such as protection against ransomware, encryption viruses, rootkits, Trojans, worms, bots, email and macro infections, and more.
  • Centralized management makes it easy to administer multiple customer systems from one location.
  • The dependable protection can be relied upon to catch and stop most threats.
  • Minimal resource impact means protected endpoints continue to enjoy their full performance capability.
  • Installation challenges compelled us to compile our own deployment scripting system.
Webroot SecureAnywhere is well suited for small and medium networks, where Windows Server is the predominant back office operating system, and Windows is the predominant desktop OS.

We are currently using Webroot SecureAnywhere for Business across 19 company locations. At the time, we were needing to address the footprint of the installation size, as well as manageability from a central location (preferably without the need to elect a server to install back-end software). For this scenario, Webroot met all demands with the smallest installation package in the industry, as well as cloud-based centralized management. While comparing Webroot with competitors, my findings were better overall detection with less false-positives.
  • Deployment in seconds with small installation file.
  • Fast scanning of computers utilizing minimum resources.
  • Centralized cloud-based management.
  • Fast scanning with great detection.
  • No "push" technology from management to client. Client checks in for policy updates in intervals.
  • Additional offerings such as education and phishing campaigns are far too expensive, and (in our experience) have technical issues.
I would recommend Webroot for any business that needs to manage endpoints. For small workgroups within single locations, an OS provided AV such as Windows Defender may suffice.

We use Webroot company wide for both static location users and mobile users.
  • Webroot has an incredibly fast install & scan
  • I average 30 seconds to install & the initial scan averages 2 minutes.
  • Updates are tiny, usually only a few
  • I'm not sure of anything that NEEDS to be improved, maybe make it free!
Webroot packs everything you want from an anti-virus package into a ridiculously small & fast package. Use it in a corporate or small business setting with equal results, it the best 'last line of defense' available.

We use Webroot SecureAnywhere for our entire onsite office and all of our remote users. Installation was simple and it handles our internet security needs wonderfully. The BEST part is that the program is very light on system resources.
  • As I said before the program is very light on system resources so more of your machine's power is available to do your work.
  • You don't have to waste time downloading new antivirus definitions.
  • The control panel could use some improvements as it can be confusing at times
I think it is appropriate for all computers and I can't think of a reason that I wouldn't use it.

In addition to using Webroot SecureAnywhere in our organization, it is a linchpin of our SECURUS© Network Security offering. We recommend all clients use this product as their endpoint "first line of defense". We have found it to be extremely flexible, usable across many platforms, and has very few negative interactions with other OS and application software installs.
  • Very comprehensive model for catching new and previously uncategorized malware and for a low "false positive" count.
  • Extremely lightweight agent allows us to place this product on many more machines than other antivirus/antimalware softwares.
  • Backend management of all agent functions and installs keeps the oversight of security issues with us or the in-house IT department, where it belongs.
  • Better reporting on rejected malware attempts. Currently, the only reporting is for items that actually made it past the initial screening by Webroot SecureAnywhere.
The backend management portal is well-suited to larger and geographically dispersed installations. Organizations where specific LoB software dictates older low-powered hardware it works well with (within reason). We've also seen great results with virtual environments.

Webroot was used to help filter search results and other online activity to promote internet safety and prevent malicious issues from improper online security. Webroot was used on all company computers and monitored by our external IT department.
  • Webroot checks all search result links and delivers warnings or approvals to users. This means Webroot is thorough and assists to keep users familiar with any potential problem sites.
  • Webroot is easily activated as a Chrome or browser extension to ensure ease of access.
  • Webroot monitors activity and will send updates to the IT department to keep them privy of any potential problems.
  • Webroot seems a heavy step in the way of keeping Apple computers safe. There are potential security issues when working with Macs, but as always, careful internet use should result in no problems. I do recognize that most people are unfortunately unaware of how to avoid malicious threats online, but careful training can avoid needing many features provided by something like Webroot.
  • Webroot extensions on internet browsers would slow down searches on Google and other sites by about 50% or more. It's fairly negligible, as you can learn patience with the software, but it does add time to your work. When you are doing a lot of searching online, I don't think it's outrageous to say Webroot makes things annoying and frustrating. Especially when accessing sites Webroot believes to be harmful when they are totally fine to access.
  • The biggest issue with Webroot is its interaction with video editing software. We had a few instances where its backend processes would interact with some of our third-party plugins, resulting in non-functioning applications and other issues. This is a very specific issue, which I realize, but it was a huge detriment to the team.
Webroot can be great if you have many employees using computers. Sensitive business information can be accessed by malicious threats online if your employees are not trained to avoid these problems. In this case, I think it's important to have software to protect you.
If working with a smaller team (and not doing any sort of video production or other intensive software/applications) I can't see a need for anything like Webroot. Learning how to use the internet safely and protecting your file storage are things to be done on the cheap and with smarts.

We use Webroot as part of a two-piece branded product that we call 'Security Packages'. Webroot is the AV portion of our security packages that get deployed to all of our endpoints that are using our core managed services. We also use Webroot internally for our organization as AV protection. Webroot helps us address the ever-growing threat landscape with our clients to ensure they are protected.
  • Webroot provides a very easy to use web interface with GSM. From a single dashboard we can control all of our endpoints that are currently using Webroot services. This is extremely helpful for central management for my engineers.
  • Webroot's new (2.0) plugin for Automate (formerly LabTech) provides us with integration into our RMM platform that allows for a large majority of the daily operational tasks to be completed without ever having to move to a different application and/or the web dashboard. The integration is key for engineers to make changes on the fly and quickly. They have done a good job with the 2.0 plugin after coming from the 1st iteration.
  • Webroot interface on the machines is a simple and easy UI to follow and understand. Seeing what the product is doing and how it is configured is very straightforward and doesn't require much hunting with the local interface on machines.
  • Webroot could do a better job of working on their integration partnerships with companies like LabTech (now known as Automate). Many times we make it through 2 or 3 levels of support before one of the parties says "oh well you need to talk to LabTech about this" or vice versa. That can be frustrating for partners when trying to understand and resolve issues between the two applications.
  • Cryptolocker/ransomware is a hot topic and I will say that Webroot has provided us with adequate protection when we first started using in 2014. I understand the complexities and challenges AV companies face with new threats being created everyday. I do want to point out that there have been instances where Webroot has not been able to stop one of those types of attacks. After talking with support - it was clear that they had no good answer as to why that particular threat was not stopped and quarantined.
  • Support for the enterprise side of Webroot can be daunting at times. Response times are hit or miss depending on the severity of the issue. Sometimes you get a great support engineer who will go above and beyond - sometimes I ask myself how this person is even employed with the lack of communication skills or actual interest in helping resolve partner issues.
Webroot is well suited for anybody looking for a strong AV product. In our particular experience - we have had great success in using the product from an MSP standpoint. It functions and allows us to create what we need knowing that we are deploying strong protection to our endpoints. I would say it is more on the technical side of AV products and could see where some people might find it as "overkill". Personally, I would rather be more protected than not in 2018. :)

We currently provide remote computer support to a number of people and businesses. Webroot is a security software that answers the needs of several of our clients. Webroot provides great protection and a low overhead profile that answers several special needs of our clients.
  • Offers advanced protection without requiring a great deal of computer resources to accomplish it.
  • Scans are super fast and allow work to continue while it is going on in the background.
  • Webroot provides an awesome dashboard for companies that need to support a large number of computers.
  • Webroot has had difficulty with the size of logs at times.
  • A better way to control and access logs.
  • Improved way for the computer owner to completely remove.
People with older and slower systems benefit greatly from using Webroot.

People that do home transcriptions with software that is clunky and hard to work with have an easier time setting up any exceptions and special needs to allow Webroot and their special software to behave together.

People that are more highly active on the Internet clicking every link they see and doing a lot of downloading from questionable sites may benefit more from a different protection system.

Webroot is used on every Windows and Mac computer we have it our company. This includes not only employee computers, but also all Windows servers we use. Previous to Webroot we used a basic anti virus scanner which did nothing to prevent malware. We started using Webroot in hopes of reducing helpdesk tickets that were due to malware getting on users computers and it we have had hardly any incidents of malware since then, 5 years ago.
  • It is very lightweight. You dont even know it is running, yet it is always protecting the endpoint.
  • It has protected us from various threats, including ransomware - even when wannacry was hitting companies everywhere.
  • They have a good console with multiple provisioning options, so we were able to push it to everyone when we first started using it, and then include it as part of our deployment process going forward.
  • It would be nice if there was a notification when Webroot blocked something. Power users may need to legitimately edit things like their hosts file, but they dont know Webroot is preventing them from doing so. They could easily temporarily disable it to do what they need to do if they were aware. Same thing goes for files that get quarantined without notice, it leaves the user wondering why their legitimate file keeps disappearing.
  • While the web based console is nice and easy to use, it could use a little better reporting.
  • If an administrator disabled a feature (like the firewall, for example) then the Webroot GUI should not alert the end user about whenever they open it. The software should be aware it is being administratively controlled.
Being a cloud based endpoint protection, it is great for companies who have a very mobile workforce, and are looking to be able to control their software using a cloud based console, instead of relying on the user to connect to their domain. Companies that are using an endpoint protection solution that may be consuming a large amount of system resources would also benefit from using Webroot since it is so lightweight.

It is used across the whole network. It is pushed out to all users by the domain controller. It is what we use to protect all of our machines and computers.
  • Great protection.
  • Easy to deploy.
  • Easy to manage by all users. If they have a blocked email, each user can log into a portal and find out why, and let it through based on their understanding of the nature of the email.
  • If there is no network connection to the cloud infrastructure, there will be no protection (drawback if there is no "layer 1" connection).
  • Heuristics can only combat some viruses, so it probably needs more methods to combat different viruses.
  • There are some instances where the server fails to push out (the server's fault), leaving a small fraction of users unprotected when they are set up for the first time.
Webroot is not a CPU hog, so it doesn't slow down the performance of our end-users' machines. Updates don't interfere, also, and there is no "walking on eggshells" when it comes to matriculating those updates. There is no need for such gentle handling. The same goes for definition updates also. Even when the risk of infecting a machine when the network is not connected, or when a USB drive is inserted while offline - those incidents are the times we tell our end-users to be careful when they do NOT have an internet connection.

We utilize Webroot on both employee and my own personal equipment. It addresses all of the things I am looking for in a security product in terms of reliability, ease of use, and low impact on system performance while maintaining a very active role in providing live security feedback. The antivirus picks up threats actively and has minimal false identifications. The website monitoring is a great tool that helps protect our non-technological users from unknown threats and the updates to the software have little bandwidth impact.
  • My number one reason I enjoy using Webroot is that it is the least resource intensive security solution I have used on the market while providing the most accurate protection against current threats.
  • Website monitoring provides great protection to users who are unsure of what are "safe" websites allowing our I.T. team to worry less about possible infections on our systems.
  • Webroot updates itself in the background with very little impact on system performance and its fast scans allow us to identify threats quickly with minimal impact on downtime.
  • Scheduling scans is somewhat counter-intuitive as the user interface could be a little more detailed so you can really fine-tune the settings.
The beauty of Webroot is its simplicity of use while providing great levels of protection. Additionally, Webroot can run concurrently with other security solutions (although we all know this is never advised) but the software really does play well with other solutions making transitions off of other products to this one easy to implement in almost any environment.

Webroot is being used as the primary antivirus solution across the organization on all user PCs and servers.
  • Zero day threat protection
  • Very low resource use even when scanning
  • Ease to deploy and manage
  • No complaints
The only time Webroot will not fit is when there is a need for control over the endpoint, like updates or applications.

We use Webroot across the entire organization as an antivirus solution and web filtering solution to prevent users from accessing questionable sites and content.
  • Low resource usage
  • Quick implementation of changes and updates
  • Central Monitoring and Reporting
  • Desktop Web Proxy service could use more bandwidth. Despite making exceptions via the Browser Bypass list, sites still load slightly slower than they would if there were no filtering software in place.
There's nothing actually bad about Webroot and how it handles itself. However, in organizations where computers are frequently recycled and put back into production it can become a chore to maintain an accurate list of active endpoints, and endpoints which have been removed as the web portal cannot track when an endpoint is removed vs. has simply been offline for some time.

We use Webroot within our company to protect our pcs and servers. It works pretty well. One of the hang-ups we had was with our laptops. Since we image them, we had to add –clone to the install exe which added additional time to our install.
  • Scanning
  • Protection
  • Remote restart
  • Imaged OS install warnings so the computers don't disappear from the console.
It works pretty well with all things. It is a little over reactive to in house software.
