We know the software side is good, but let’s not forget that the technical support is also very good as well.

I have only ever contacted support a couple of times through the years, and the response and resolutions to the contact has been excellent. That’s the most important part in any software company’s business… when you have issues, how they get resolved, and Webroot has earned their reward as far as I am concerned. Well Done!

Great news, congrats !

Absolutely well deserved. Honestly speaking, since we have changed to Webroot in 2017 ransomware and virus/malware related incidents has decreased dramatically. For me, I will find it very hard to change and move away from Webroot. 

Excellent product, excellent support, all-around amazing experience working with the product.

Light load security solutions that just work.  Having webroot with non-admin users seems to result in zero infections for our customers.  Something we think is great.

Headlines like this annoy the crap outta me. The testing for this must have been done as the clock struck midnight on Dec 31st 2020. 2021 has barely existed, such marketing fluff.

Well done team Webroot!!
