Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus is our go to choice, for an antivirus solution which can secure your computer not just from malware, but from network based attacks.
The firewall in Webroot ensures network intrusions are blocked automatically, as are malicious websites. Programs which make connections to unknown servers will be blocked from phoning home, and you can use the network monitor to spot the shady connections. The Identity Shield in Webroot, prevents phishing websites from stealing your financial information, social ids, etc.
The Webroot password manager, which is part of the suite, can be used to save your online login information in a secured vault. The details in the vault are encrypted, and locked with a master password, that only you know
The primary feature in Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus, is without a doubt, the antivirus, which can prevent ransomware, malware, viruses, trojans, etc before they can infect the computer. The scans which the application runs, are the fastest you will ever see in an antivirus. Mostly, the scans are done in a minute or so.
Here’s the really unbelievable part, Webroot is about 10 to 15 MB to install. That’s after the program has been installed, not just the download. Amazing, isn’t it? So, if the application is 15MB, will it work offline? Yes, of course it will, the program has an Offline Shield, which monitors unknown files and checks them when you next connect to the internet. And if things aren’t good with the files detected offline, the program will rollback your system to the previous state.
Want even more features? How about the fact that you can use the SecureAnywhere dashboard, from literally anywhere using just a web browser, to keep an eye on your computer’s security?
You can use Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus to protect 3 devices; PC, Mac or mobile phone (or tablet). There are dedicated Webroot apps for Android and iOS, both of which can block malicious websites. The apps allow you to locate a stolen device too. The Android version is slightly more powerful thanks to its malware detection capabilities.
