Pros: I love this program it scans every document and file and will find any virsus or file that can be harmful to your device and lets you pick what you would like to do with each specific one it finds. It does not slow up your PC even when you have several things running at the same time. You could pay for one subscription and add up to 3 or 4 devices on it.

Overall: It does exactly what it says it does, moderately affordable and you could use one subscription for 3-4 different devices in totally different zip codes and it still works fine. NO SLOWING OF YOUR PC WHILE IT IS RUNNING

Webroot DNS is 100% garbage. No customization by groups.

Cons: You need to create a custom policy for specific devices in a group, doesn't happen. You are forced to use a default global policy for roaming agents (no, you can't customize per site).

The other option is global per site (DHCP or Static IP) and you are forced to use one policy for all. This isn't a solution for any corporation.

Recommendation is to use either Cisco Umbrella or MaxFocus Content filtering

Overall: Honestly, not sure why we keep it for even AV

Webroot AV states it catches malware and virus's, it only catches some virus(s). Malware, it's a joke. If you want malware protection, use Malwarebytes.

Pros: Webroot helps us with the need for anti-malware, anti-virus nd improved firewall security. it also help a lot with vulnerability scanning which is essential to our business.

Cons: It may take a while to get it going - we had some trouble purchasing and deploying. but otherwise it has been a great asset for our team.

Easy to use. No need to keep installing updates, it will automatically update.

Pros: I was a huge Norton fan until I purchased a new computer from Best Buy. They recommended this program and included a free trial. I was highly skeptical, but they convinced me to give it a try. I love the fact that it doesn't install a lot of files on your computer and uses very little space. It has not changed the speed of my computer either. I am very happy with this program and it is working perfectly. I love the piece of mind you get by using Webroot to protect your computer.

Cons: You have to be careful when you renew this program. They will send you a renewal price, but it will not be the lowest price you can find. If you purchase off eBay, make sure you confirm the activation date. I purchased one and there were only 7 months left on the 1 year subscription. Best Buy will activate on the date of purchase even if it has not been activated.

Pros: I like the fact that you can put this software on an image and it will scan the new computer that you put it on without having to download.

Cons: the only thing I dont like so far is that it has been bad about picking up ransomware. the company has been hit a few times with this issue and there are no logs of it in webroot.

Pros: I never have to update the software and I never have to scan the system.
I just runs in the background and does it's thing protecting your PC while you work.
Adding the web root filtering extension to my browser also gives added protection while you surf the internet.

Cons: Had to setup a custom policy for one workstation to allow it access to an outside the network server which is a little tricky but software support walked me through process so no problem.

Overall: Secure network with little or no user interface.
