Overall Satisfaction with Webroot Antivirus + Internet Security Complete (SecureAnywhere)

We install Webroot SecureAnywhere on all devices, such as servers and workstations. Webroot SecureAnywhere helps products the devices from viruses and malicious activity.
  • It has a very small footprint
  • It scans fairly quickly
  • It's very unobtrusive
  • Alerting from the console is lacking some useful options
  • Small footprint
  • Easy of management
  • Global console to view all devices
  • We've had fewer virus infections
  • We've been able to make workstations last longer because of the smaller footprint
Webroot SecureAnywhere is so much easier to use than the other products we've used or tested. The small footprint of Webroot makes up for any enhanced features that a competitor might have. We chose Webroot SecureAnywhere because of the competitive cost, ease of management, and increase in the speed of the machine being protected.

Webroot SecureAnywhere is perfect for business machines as well as personal devices because of its small footprint. The Webroot Console is great to be able to managing multiple devices while being easy to use. There's no need to manage specific scan schedules or custom settings for individual machines because the defaults work on 99%+ of machines. One of the downsides is the Webroot Console has both a new way and an old way to view devices and the new way doesn't have all the same functionality as the old way, so we still have to access the older console views occasionally.

Evaluating Webroot Antivirus + Internet Security Complete (SecureAnywhere) and Competitors

Yes - We had previously been using AVG CloudCare when Avast them took over. That product was decent, but it was slow and the management console was also very slow. The cost was also a bit high, so we wanted something better and/or cheaper, and Webroot fit that perfectly.

  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
The biggest factor was management. We needed something that was easy to manage in terms of time spent dealing with the management console itself and dealing with any alerts that it generated.
I'm not sure I'd change anything about the evaluation and selection process. Maybe I would include some other lesser-known products to test, but I'm not sure I would have chosen a product that wasn't already a popular product.
