Webroot is being used across the entire company. We are an MSP and we also use it with all of our clients. Our old antivirus solution was a flavor of Kaspersky with Kaseya and had a noticeable performance impact on machines. Management was also a hassle. We switched to Webroot since it was much easier to manage, and its footprint is very small on all machines we have it on.
- Its footprint is very small. We have not seen performance impacts on the machine, and scans are very fast. The only time there have been issues is when testing for needed exclusions. Once everything is configured, you can't notice it's there unless it alerts for a threat.
- The installation is quick and doesn't require a reboot. This is very useful, as we don't need to worry about rebooting machines before protection is active. It also installs within 5 minutes at the most. That is not an exaggeration, and it's usually even faster than that.
- I would like to see an option for automatic cleanup of duplicate Agents. Occasionally, a machine will show up twice and one of the Agents will show as disconnected. I'm not entirely sure if this is from updates or something weird in Windows. We stay on top of cleaning this up on a regular basis, but for instances where the names are similar enough to detect duplicates, it would be nice to automate this and then have a report sent showing what was cleaned up in case there was a mistake.

I feel that Webroot Endpoint Protection is well suited for any environment requiring a trustworthy and efficient antivirus solution. It doesn't have any downsides I have seen if a small business wanted to use it versus a large enterprise. The management can cope with managing a large number of Agent and Sites, so I feel it could scale well for any size business. It's the best antivirus option I've used over the year, and I would recommend it highly to anyone, and even for personal use.

Our company is using Webroot Endpoint Protection in all of our 3 offices. Webroot does a great job of preventing virus attacks via the web. It also does a great job to prevent viruses from attacking through other channels when using our computers.
- Webroot Endpoint Protection is easy to deploy. Staff just needs to receive a link to run the installation along with an input key.
- Webroot Endpoint Protection provides a very simple method to monitor all computer status via a web sign-in portal. From this portal, the admin can temporarily disable Webroot in case it's preventing certain programs from being installed.
- We experienced problems with getting Webroot Endpoint Protection to be deployed to protect web browsers. Unfortunately, users when opening a web browser will have to for the first time accept the Webroot extension/add-in protection. If staff chooses to not allow the extension/add-in to run, then there would be no web browser protection.
- Webroot Endpoint Protection seems to take a bit of time to uninstall. The documentation shows a possibility of waiting for up to 24 hours. The uninstallation response time should be immediate when this agent operation/command is selected on the web portal.

Webroot Endpoint Protection is well suited for large organizations where you want to provide different protection policies to various department groups. Via the web portal, Webroot Endpoint Protection gives the admin the needed feature functions to create these groups and policies.

We use Webroot Endpoint Protection to shield against a variety of malware attacks, including screening websites, incoming e-mails, attachments, and downloaded files. We have a blended environment of Windows-, Mac-, Android- and iOS-based devices, so Webroot Endpoint Protection allows us to use the same suite of tools for all operating systems.
- Screens incoming e-mails for threats
- Blocks potentially dangerous websites
- Removes infected files from downloaded materials
- Can't screen for the newest threats on the web
- Sometimes misses threats in documents
- Overly aggressive at times, blocking legitimate websites by mistake

We have a fair number of non-tech-savvy employees, who might visit dangerous websites or fall victim to phishing scams through e-mail. Most of these employees aren't yet able to discern the difference between legitimate communications and threats, so we had to put in place a very robust tool for screening malware. Webroot Endpoint Protection is generally very aggressive and helps those less-experienced computer users avoid Internet security issues. Still, those same aggressive settings sometimes get in the way of accessing legitimate sites and documents, resulting in some frustration from employees who are more familiar with self-screening methods.
