Threat Intelligence

2018-05-17

It ensures that data from millions of sources, including real-world endpoints and our embedded security partners.

Pros

Very rarely requires an increased hardware profile Integrates directly with the partner's management console, policy engine, and reporting infrastructure.Scales across the partner's product lines, from solutions for SMBs to those for remote offices or roaming machines, to the data center Development efforts that can be leveraged across the same range of product lines.

Cons

From the time it was installed to the time it was up and running we hadn't had any major issues that would cause any type of concern.

Powerfull file protection program.

2017-08-08

Excellent Business Internet Security/File Protection solution.

Pros

Webroot has very secure admin settings to prevent users from disabling it.

Cons

It uses a good deal of resources. It would work better in windows if it used less resources. That's merely a technicality though.

Speed, but with sacrifices.

2016-03-29

I've used Webroot Endpoint Protection for a little over two years. I've found every aspect of the product to be excellent except (and this is a big except) actual detection of threats, and client speed on OS X systems.

Pros

Integrates with Windows server products for deployment (though I use Samba instead, so this was not an option), and provides a centralized point for administrator notification and action when compromised/infected systems are detected.

Cons

I discovered that Webroot, though fully deployed and set to monitor downloads, warn on browsing, and scan the affected directories, simply had not alerted on anything.

Essential cloud based security suite

2018-03-18

Ease of use for setting daily scans and automatic security updates.

Pros

Webroot didn't conflict when I ran alongside other security software which means there's no need to uninstall existing protection if you want to test this awesome security suite of powerful tools.

Cons

The price point is competitive especially for multi-year subscription. It would be nice to have a 30-day trial period instead of just 14-days.

The Default AntiVirus we use for ALL our clients

2018-05-14

Pros

Its one of the fastest AntiVirus Scanners out there; we liked it so much that we shifted all of our clients from another AV to this one in under 3 months. The Single pane of glass for multi-tenant management is great.

Cons

The Billing piece can use some better reporting.

It gets the job done

2018-05-10

Pros

It is easy to deploy and the management interface is easy to manage, if you are managing your customers solution, you can easily separate them and their licenses from each other.

Cons

It gets the jog done, i do not like that you cannot disable the AV from the machine, you have to use the console. This makes sense but can be incontinent at times.

Hello Bianca,

Logging into the console can be done from the endpoints themselves as well, if you are looking to manage it from each individual machine.

Smooth software

2017-09-08

Business grade protection, cloud control

Pros

I most like the simple and common interface, works on PC & Mac, with a single control panel, cloud hosted means escalation events are available to follow the helpdesk.

Cons

Previously we used a used another product, and both the user interface and server control were adequate, but pale in comparison - should have moved to Webroot sooner!

Webroot just as good as any other antivirus

2018-05-17

This is a great antivirus you could use it on all your devices, I like using it better than Norton thats for sure.

Pros

I can set it to do automatic scans at times when I am not using the PC so it does not interrupt what I am doing with scans.

Cons

I also think it should have a monitoring system that automatically scans incoming emails and separates junk from real emails that would be cool

The best malware protection that doesn't annoy you to death

2018-05-25

Pros

I absolutely love Webroot. It doesn't slow down any of our computers, it does protect you, but it doesn't annoy you to death with prompts. One of the big issues I've had with antivirus software in the past is that it would constantly block something that was safe for me to do. I have NEVER had Webroot do that.

Cons

I mean, could they branch out and start making other software products outside of security? Their software has worked so well, I don't have any complaints.

One of the absolute BEST security vendors to work with.

2017-09-08

Centrally managed through a console and no definitions to download on the system making it the lightest in the world.

Pros

The product is the lightest in the industry and all management is done through a centralized web console.

Cons

They just need to integrate all of their product portfolio into the Global Site Manger console. Other than that, it's a perfect fit for MSP's and home users alike
