Home Business IT Security Webroot SecureAnywhere - fast and furious!

 

Released late this evening, Webroot's new personal security product claims to be the fastest available.

 

 

 

As with most personal device security products, Webroot's SecureAnywhere 2102 ticks all the main boxes.

Of course it blocks viruses, spyware, rootkits etc; it also performs regular full scans of the device and has sufficient heuristics to (hopefully) identify suspicious behaviour in malware it doesn't yet know about.

Webroot also claims that the product is in a state of continual update and is also able to manage device settings so that they are unaffected by malicious activity.  All of those features are in the basic product, Webroot Secure Anywhere Antivirus.

Add to that a firewall and a handful of identity protection features (anonymous browsing, permanent file deletion and phishing attack blocks) along with 2GB of online backup and a PC file synchronisation service and you have Webroot Secure Anywhere Essentials.

Finally, in Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete, purchasers will also receive authentication encryption, secure form filling and online shopping protection.  Additionally in this top-end version, there are a number of mobile device protection features such as app scanning, remote wiping and a location service (both if the device is stolen).  Also, the online backup storage is increased to 10GB.

How about a few more details about how it works?  Read on.
