Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus Editor's Review

To thwart various types of malware and attacks, a PC user needs more than just an antivirus application nowadays. If you are among such security conscious users, investing in a capable internet security suite makes sense. However, the problem lies in selecting the right app from a wide range of contenders. If you want a capable PC security app that offers decent protection from various offline and web based threats at an attractive price point, give Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus a try. It offers a tad better protection that the company’s antivirus and you can buy either single or triple license copy.

If you had trouble installing PC security software in the past, the installation of Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus will be a big relief for you. It is quite fast and you will not be asked to restart the computer after the process finishes. Its hardware requirement is quite modest as well. You will be able to use this app on a PC with Windows XP and its later versions. Besides, this app does not try to bundle any third party tool or changes browser settings. When install runs, the app checks for malware and risks in your PC.

The app interface is visually appealing though it can seem a little cluttered for some users. It is divided into 5 tabs- My Account, System Tools, PC Security, Overview and Identity & Privacy. While the settings contain too many options, it is targeted at advanced users. Others can rely on the app’s default settings for most tasks and adequate level of protection. For aid on using the software, you have to resort to Webroot’s online help. One glaring omission is an anti spam module, something many security suites in its category offer. Same can be said about lack of parental control.

Its tiny footprint notwithstanding, Webroot’s Internet Security app beats many of the reputed security suites in malware detection and cleanup performance. It detects threats in web sites and folders quickly and jumps into action. The app comes with a firewall but it’s not two way. In fact, Webroot relies on Windows Firewall to cope with stealth attacks and port based intrusions. However, it keeps a tab on programs that try to connect to web. The good thing is that malicious programs cannot terminate the processes of the security suite.

In anti phishing performance, Webroot’s Internet Security software performs moderately and scores below SmartScreen Filter of IE8. The app’s Identity Shield component works in the background to safeguard your privacy. To let you test a suspected file the app has its SafeStart Sandbox.

One useful bundled utility you get with this suite is a password manager. The feature is handy for users who need to use lots of online services including purchases. It can also save sites in its menu which can be used for instant logging in later. The app also offers protection for mobile devices, running iOS and Android. This is useful since many people nowadays use iPhone or Android based tablets and phones. However, it is not as comprehensive as a full scale mobile security app. It is handy for locating registered mobile devices that get stolen. It is also possible to wipe data or lock the device remotely.

Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus is light on system resources. This is a boon for those users who are weary of PC security apps that offer protection at the cost of sluggish PC performance. It does not add to boot and shutdown timing much. You will not face any slowdown in web browsing either. The scans are also quite fast.

Positive Points:
•    Low on system resources, easy installation.
•    Top notch malware protection.
•    Handy password management feature.
•    Covers Mobile devices.

Negative Points:
•    Anti-Phishing performance is just average.
•    No protection against spam, no parental control.
•    Firewall protection not adequate.
•    Advanced settings can be intimidating for new users.

Conclusion:
Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus offers good malware protection and covers up to 3 devices and PCs. However, that may not be enough to buy it for some users. Its firewall is not a strong performer and same is true of the anti phishing component. While password manager feature is useful, you can opt for third party tools that perform as well. Exclusion of a parental control section and spam filter is quite unacceptable. If you do not need multi device protection, opt for the company’s entry level antivirus which offers near identical protection at a lower price.
