Overall Satisfaction with Webroot SecureAnywhere

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.
  • Centralized management reduces desk-side support.
  • Webroot is priced very competitively in the market.
  • In a world where phishing is more prevalent, it's a hard sell to "buy" AV when free and included AV works well.
Webroot was the easiest to deploy, remove, and manage compared to all other products tested.
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.
