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.,9,Centralized management reduces desk-side support.

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,10,Now that Webroot SecureAnywhere is set up I can rest assured that all the computers I look after are safe.,Norton Internet Security and AVG AntiVirus Business Edition,Microsoft 365 BusinessWebroot - Best Anti-Virus for BusinessesIt is being used on workstations across our entire organization. It was used more in depth at my previous employer(MSP) and is where I interacted with it the most. We were able to silently install on computers that were missing Webroot which could automatically license and poll to the cloud. This was great in the fact that we didn't have to big the end user, we just had to wait for it to show in the cloud admin console. As an admin you have complete control and can even go as far as to not allow the end user to open and see the Webroot client interface. Since we had an overview of all Webroot clients from the cloud, we were able to proactively see viruses or threats before they caused major harm on the computer. As for the servers you were able to turn off certain features if you felt it would interfere with the performance or programs running on them. There are some helpful tools that you can use if the client is on a workstation. For example you can send a command to reboot the computer with no interaction. It runs mostly on it's own and is my favorite Antivirus to use.,It is very light weight and does not tax the computers resources Has a quick scan and does not take forevere when scanning It's central management on the web makes it easy to use and gives tons of control for Admins,Sometimes when programs are being blocked it can be time consuming to unblock There are steps on removing webroot from a computer if it is locked down by policy and removing will take knwoing how. Never really have had too many issues with Webroot honestly,10,It saves us time and money in the fact that it runs and we never really have to worry about that part of IT. IT just runs Being able to centrally manage the clients is another plus because of being able to reach it virtually anywhere. Very simple quick installs. Gives us time to do other things.,VIPRE, AVG AntiVirus Business Edition, Avast Business Antivirus and Norton Internet Security,Altaro Hyper-V Backup, Datto, Trimble AccubidBest security system for your network? Maybe.Webroot is being used by our entire organization. We have deployed it on all of our systems and couldn't be happier. There have been instances that we are 100% aware of where Webroot has saved our company. The ease of use, automatic updates, and agility are its best features.,Implementation - super easy and seamless. Security - constant monitoring and automatic updates. Low memory use - the application takes almost no memory running in the background and does not distract from any other activities.,In my opinion, it's a perfect system. I have no complaints - truly.,10,Feeling safe. There's nothing better than knowing that your files and systems are secure.,Kaspersky Endpoint Security,Agile CRM, Adobe Acrobat DCWebroot is definitely worth the money for security!!!It's currently being used across the entire organization. It definitely addresses our need for cybersecurity on many fronts. Between covering us against malware and ransomware; to keep us abreast of hacker attempts using the DNS protection, it's definitely been an asset that our company has been utilizing for the last 4 years.,The minimal amount of resources used to both install and run the program in the background for our end users is very efficient. The amount of time in between when an infection is found on a user's computer and when we in the IT department are notified is very fast and enables us to react to these issues in a very timely fashion. Having all of the virus and malware definitions in the cloud proactively checking for not just files but behaviors of how files act is a very cool feature to have as well.,I don't like how from the admin console, I am not able to scan an individual file on an end user's computer. I can only do either a full system scan or a scan of a user's folder. It would be nice if it could get a little more granular.,10,It has definitely had a positive impact on our company with how secure its made our business digitally.,Avast Business Antivirus, Norton Internet Security and Kaspersky Endpoint SecurityReview: WebrootWebroot 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.,5,It cost us time on projects (see above). I'm unaware of the cost associated with Webroot, but it did cost money to use and process with the external IT department.,Slack, Accounting by Wave, Adobe Illustrator CC, Adobe Acrobat DC, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere ProWebroot, all others are fighting for second place.We use it exclusively for our clients and our machines. It is very lightweight and not resource intensive. The management console makes it simple to apply sitewide policies or just for specific users. False positives do occur but are rare.,Does not impact Machine performance. Easy administration and deployment. Very effective.,Impacts on some larger clients during initial deployment as far as making custom applications not give false positives. Admin Portal could be more intuitive. Decommissioning could be a bit simpler.,10,Pretty much handles everything on its own. Does not require input from user or admins. Saves money/time not having to manually scan/monitor machines.,,ConnectWise Automate (formerly LabTech), ConnectWise Manage, Microsoft Office 365Webroot Just WorksIt is used across the whole company for anti-virus/etc services.,Not too heavy on system Protects well Never had a virus or hacking issue Easy to implement,Mobile security needs work, especially with Apple products.,10,Kaspersky Endpoint Security, Norton Internet Security and Trend Micro,Microsoft Office 365, LexisNexis PCLaw, Dropbox, TeamViewer, Adobe Acrobat DCHonest - IT oriented reviewWe 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.,9,From an MSP perspective - I would say it has been an amazing ROI. Cost is important and sometimes not the most important. Overall for the value - we are very happy with the product. Simple to use, simple to roll out, great integration's, and decent support for enterprise partners. Non technical people would consider this a "negative" but anybody in the IT field would understand why things have to be done this way. When rolling out to new clients, inherently, it is challenging to determine all necessary exclusions needed for every application a company has. This can be frustrating for clients with the great level of protection that Webroot provides. From the IT field, we understand that AV roll outs needs to be watched closely to determine when proper exclusions need to be put in place to ensure the clients LOB applications are working correctly. Webroot has helped us achieve the business objectives we set out to make - a strong 'Security Package' that address both virus and malware protection. We will continue to use Webroot in the future as we add more products into our Security Package.,,ConnectWise Control (formerly ScreenConnect), ConnectWise Automate (formerly LabTech), ConnectWise ManagePeace of Mind with your Anti-Virus with an MVP solutionWebroot provides ease of onboarding/migration while providing multiple vectors of protection. The best support team!,Silent audit Journaling and rollback Ease of deployment Reporting,Change the Firewall wording to match what it should be!,10,Positive - no more remediation,Acronis Backup Cloud, Webroot, Kaseya Virtual System Administrator (VSA)Webroot - Doing us right for 5 years and countingWebroot 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.,9,It has prevented ransomware from spreading from an unprotected endpoint to the rest of the network, that alone was worth the price. Multiple subscription length options give us flexibility in price and budgeting.,Kaspersky Endpoint Security,Microsoft Office 365, CrashPlan, RingCentralWebroot is a Great Choice For Protection and SpeedWe 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.,8,Webroot for a business environment and for service providers is an excellent choice. It offers extremely affordable options to protect. Webroot offers multiple bulk/dashboard packages including the ability to provide PC/MAC/Mobile protection with a single package. Webroot does require annual purchases even though they are low in most cases it is still a higher up front impact for small or new businesses.,McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite,Microsoft Access, Adobe Photoshop, Oracle VM VirtualBoxWebroot is Your Roadrunner to Other Antiviruses' CoyotesIt 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.,8,There are no legal problems to hurdle, because it shows quite well how committed we are to preventing information loss. It also shows how committed to protecting data - such as HIPAA concerns. Using it is a demonstrate how to properly display a companies priorities when it comes to spending the right amount of money on a very reliable service. "We are not cutting corners" is the message there.,,Microsoft Office 365, ConnectWise Manage, LabTechWebroot pulls all the virus roots out!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.,10,Better customer service due to fast scanning, ease of use, and little impact on both user and technician time allowing fast and prompt service when necessary. Increased technical staff efficiency due to enhanced security from Webroot allowing technical staff to work on other issues without worrying about security threats.

Cloud-based defense provides a much better defense for zero-day exploits than traditional A/V solutions.,more notification when a client is not updating or connecting to the console Manual remediation is required after being notified of malware or virus.,9,Positive ROI. We replaced McAfee with Webroot at Helac Corp. Webroot is vastly superior to McAfee for ease of management and policy creation/deployment. McAfee required a lot of manual work and was not very reliable, Webroot is the exact opposite. After deploying Webroot; its simple administration and management requires us to spend less time administering/remediating client computers, so we can spend time working on business critical projects. Reliability and confidence for users travelling the world, having Webroot's cloud-based updating keeps our systems safe so we can focus on doing business.,,10,10Webroot is the root of our web defense.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.

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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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 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.

It is being used on workstations across our entire organization. It was used more in depth at my previous employer(MSP) and is where I interacted with it the most. We were able to silently install on computers that were missing Webroot which could automatically license and poll to the cloud. This was great in the fact that we didn't have to big the end user, we just had to wait for it to show in the cloud admin console. As an admin you have complete control and can even go as far as to not allow the end user to open and see the Webroot client interface. Since we had an overview of all Webroot clients from the cloud, we were able to proactively see viruses or threats before they caused major harm on the computer. As for the servers you were able to turn off certain features if you felt it would interfere with the performance or programs running on them. There are some helpful tools that you can use if the client is on a workstation. For example you can send a command to reboot the computer with no interaction. It runs mostly on it's own and is my favorite Antivirus to use.
  • It is very light weight and does not tax the computers resources
  • Has a quick scan and does not take forevere when scanning
  • It's central management on the web makes it easy to use and gives tons of control for Admins
  • Sometimes when programs are being blocked it can be time consuming to unblock
  • There are steps on removing webroot from a computer if it is locked down by policy and removing will take knwoing how.
  • Never really have had too many issues with Webroot honestly
It works well for the company and love that it is centrally managed on the web. Being able to create policies and assign per individuals Webroot client is awesome. So easy to use and the support is awesome!

Webroot is being used by our entire organization. We have deployed it on all of our systems and couldn't be happier. There have been instances that we are 100% aware of where Webroot has saved our company. The ease of use, automatic updates, and agility are its best features.
  • Implementation - super easy and seamless.
  • Security - constant monitoring and automatic updates.
  • Low memory use - the application takes almost no memory running in the background and does not distract from any other activities.
  • In my opinion, it's a perfect system. I have no complaints - truly.
The best use of Webroot would be on a multiple machine system or a network. If you are only interested in securing one end point, this may not be the best solution.

It's currently being used across the entire organization. It definitely addresses our need for cybersecurity on many fronts. Between covering us against malware and ransomware; to keep us abreast of hacker attempts using the DNS protection, it's definitely been an asset that our company has been utilizing for the last 4 years.
  • The minimal amount of resources used to both install and run the program in the background for our end users is very efficient.
  • The amount of time in between when an infection is found on a user's computer and when we in the IT department are notified is very fast and enables us to react to these issues in a very timely fashion.
  • Having all of the virus and malware definitions in the cloud proactively checking for not just files but behaviors of how files act is a very cool feature to have as well.
  • I don't like how from the admin console, I am not able to scan an individual file on an end user's computer. I can only do either a full system scan or a scan of a user's folder. It would be nice if it could get a little more granular.
I don't have any specific scenarios where it wouldn't be appropriate. I would highly recommend the program in any situation, both personal use and in a corporate environment.

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 it exclusively for our clients and our machines. It is very lightweight and not resource intensive. The management console makes it simple to apply sitewide policies or just for specific users. False positives do occur but are rare.
  • Does not impact Machine performance.
  • Easy administration and deployment.
  • Very effective.
  • Impacts on some larger clients during initial deployment as far as making custom applications not give false positives.
  • Admin Portal could be more intuitive.
  • Decommissioning could be a bit simpler.
It is very well suited to business applications with multiple users due to it central management console. Might be business with one or two overkill for businesses with just one or two machines.

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. :)

Webroot provides ease of onboarding/migration while providing multiple vectors of protection. The best support team!
  • Silent audit
  • Journaling and rollback
  • Ease of deployment
  • Reporting
  • Change the Firewall wording to match what it should be!
Well suited through Kaseya because of the extra value from the integration as well as the ability to deploy alongside any other antivirus without issue, allowing you to uninstall the old antivirus at your leisure. Under 2 MG is the size and if you also want ransomware protection to go along with the AV protection from one solution.

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.

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.

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.

Helac Corp. uses Webroot to protect distributed systems within our enterprise. We have a remote sales team located across the United States and Europe. Keeping all endpoints virus and malware free is critical to our daily operation. Webroot's cloud updating means that our endpoints are always kept up-to-date to ensure we are protected.
  • Cloud-based client updates, client computers are always up-to-date
  • Single pane administration, provides quick client remediation when malware or a virus is detected.
  • Cloud-based defense provides a much better defense for zero-day exploits than traditional A/V solutions.
  • more notification when a client is not updating or connecting to the console
  • Manual remediation is required after being notified of malware or virus.
It is suitable for remote sales users who do not frequently connect to the corporate domain. Webroot updates are available as soon as the client connects to the internet.

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.
