Editors' Review

+

Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security protects your sensitive data and personal information, without compromising computer performance.

Pros

Effective software: During testing, Webroot found some issues on the test machine and removed them.

Overall computer security: This software allows you to safeguard against future breaches by deleting temporary files and ensuring that deleted files aren't recoverable.

Clarity in design: The interface design is very well thought out. Even if this is the first piece of protection software you've worked with, you should have no problem figuring out how to use it.

Cons

Pricing structure: Webroot uses an annual fee pricing structure for its software. This is becoming more and more common in software, but it is a difficult sell in virus protection, when there are still virus protection suites that are available for a one-time cost or even no cost.

Bottom Line

When it comes to protecting your system from Internet threats, Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Securitydoes a very solid job and so is an option worth considering.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security 2015.

"My new favorite security software"

September 10, 2016  |  By gmc_cowboy

2016-09-10 04:00:13  |  By gmc_cowboy

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete 2015

Pros

Uses almost no background memory; no impact on computer speed; lots of settings to tailor to your needs; website ratings in search engine results; quick scans; good detection rates in tests/reviews

Cons

Not the best option if you're not always connected to the internet, as it relies on the cloud to function

Summary

I tried Webroot Secure Anywhere Internet Security after reading a PC Mag article giving it an outstanding review, and I'm glad I did. It offers all the basics and no useless bloatware garbage that so many other anti-viruses bundle nowadays. Most impressively, it uses almost no memory and has by far the least impact on computer speed of any anti-virus software I've ever used (second best would be Norton Security, and the worst would be Bitdefender and McAfee based on memory used and personal speed perception). Webroot offers plenty of settings for power users to play around with. And the web protection, which includes clear web site ratings in search engine results (so you don't click on an infected link) is among the best of any out there. I'm a techie so I tend to try out new stuff because I get asked all the time "what should I use" for various software. So my new top recommendation for anti-virus is Webroot, as long as you're always connected to the internet as it relies upon the cloud to check unknown processes and files. It is fast and offers just the right amount of features, and has excellent detection rates per reviews and lab tests.

"Very Low Resource Impact / Very High Security"

February 17, 2015  |  By Interprises

2015-02-17 21:10:51  |  By Interprises

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete 2015

Pros

No appreciable impact on system resources
Excellent heuristics and threat database refreshment
Robust administrative interface
Uncluttered GUI
Very flexible and feature rich user security preferences
Multi-platform protection with single license; each endpoint allowed five additional devices (smartphone, tablet, etc)

Cons

Adding devices requires several "secure" steps, which some could see as a a negative

Summary

Having been a longtime user (1998-2011) of ESET's NOD32, then Kaspersky (2011-2013), I was very reluctant to switch. However, NOD32 became a bloated, resource hog from v4 on. Switching to Kaspersky I noticed issues with resource impact as well. Webroot has been as invisible as any AVM package I've used. My local tests continue to satisfy me. Webroot protects my systems from threats and attacks on a variety of levels. Their Webroot Infrared algo even provides advanced detection of zero-day malware. Very pleased with Webroot.

"Does not appear to work at all"

January 03, 2015  |  By cnet-member-666

2015-01-03 14:01:07  |  By cnet-member-666

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete 2015

Pros

Simple to use and fast.

Cons

Does not actually work.

Summary

Just purchased this to help remove some dllhost hijacking malware (I ended up just wiping the disk). Webroot detected nothing. Spyhunter was a little better, finding secondary issues, though not the actual malware itself. Malwarebytes noticed and blocked the port usage. Vipre blocked a few things from running as well. So essentially it is a complete waste of money. Any kickbacks to CNET for their friendly article I wonder?
