Overall Satisfaction with Webroot

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.
  • 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.
I am not a McAfee lover and have not been for a long while. I have on occasion had to support computers with it. In fact a business we provide support for now uses it. There are more incidents of malware infection and more complaints of computer performance for those using different McAffee protection products than those using Webroot. I would recommend Webroot.
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.
