How it Works?
Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus protects the system using various techniques. It can detect malware by the way of scanning and blocking virus in real-time from background process. Also, checks the Windows registry for record of possible threats. It heuristic analysis features can analyze suspicious behavior on PC. It is somewhat better than antivirus having latest signature update that could be unable to detect zero day threats. Webroot mostly relies on behavior observation of suspected malware activity on process, rather than having signature database update each day. It is quite light weight security software and occupies less space on its installation area. Best thing is, it consumes fewer amount of resources while working hard on protection. However, because of its different behavior of action as compared to other security software, there is no AV Lab test record. It is quite hard to conclude its overall performance.
Webroot detection system is cloud based for accurate detection. However, it uses small footprint to clear out the malicious programs leaving the rest in peace. Detected suspicious programs are halted while it waits from user’s action to avoid false positives and roll backs the system on previous good state. In our test it wiped out 100% of possible threats so it won’t be the bad idea to score it with 10/10 points.
