Webroot SecureAnywhere is a blazing-fast malware scanner that offers protection from phishing attacks, software hijacks, and more.
Excellent design: Webroot uses colors to indicate the protection status of products. Green stands for fully protected, orange represents a warning state, and red indicates a critical vulnerability. For example, disabling the real-time shield pulls up a caption notification and immediately puts the Webroot SecureAnywhere state into the red, making it difficult for others to hijack and disable the antivirus software unnoticed.
Lightweight: Webroot's complete installation takes up around 1MB of space. The AntiVirus version doesn't take a very noticeable toll on your system, even for full scans -- a complete scan took less than 30 seconds, which blows most scan times out of the water. However, SecureAnywhere also puts less emphasis on definition-based scans compared to similar applications in the field, and instead puts more weight on cloud-based scanning.
Uncertain performance: Webroot SecureAnywhere is responsive, adapting to your machine's activities and behaviors. SecureAnywhere may not initially categorize certain activity as malicious until it learns and digests the behavior, and there's no real way to predict when the app will learn enough to become effective in assessing that threat.
Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus is an impressive product overall. It has a solid performance ranking, barely takes a toll on your system, and has a clear user interface that makes its workings transparent. Though Webroot's heavier, cloud-based approach to online security makes it hard to rate against other antivirus apps, the change is perhaps a necessary step to keep up with current security threats.
Webroot SecureAnywhere protects you from online threats with the world's most powerful cloud security solution, keeping you safe no matter how or where you connect. It scans faster, uses fewer system resources, and protects you in real-time by instantly identifying and blocking new threats as soon as they appear.
