I am coming from a McAfee EPo and ESET solution to a webroot solution. I am using the “Management Console - CE 22.4” to setup a range of Windows servers.
I have a few questions:
1: Can we set the on access scan to “scan only on write” not read.
2: Should we use file/folder exclusions?
3: Is there a live scanning monitor to see what is being scanned at any time - this will test what should and what should not be scanned?
We also have seen that when we do a remote desktop to a server, the scanner activates and the CPU increases.

Welcome to the forum and I have no doubt your decision to move to Webroot is the right one.
To answer your questions (to my knowledge, and I am no expert, I would recommend logging a support case to get a definitive answer on each)
When you mention the CPU increase, how much are we talking? As mentioned above, I genuinely have never had an issue with resource hogging from Webroot aside from one machine that was running an OS that was no longer in support.
Sorry I can’t be more help, I am sure others will chime in here as well if they have anything they can add.
