The Next Generation of Webroot SecureAnywhere is Here

At Webroot, we continually strive for excellence. We're very excited to unveil our latest improvements to SecureAnywhere:

 

  • New interface that's even easier to use
  • Features and protection information at your fingertips
  • Set it and forget it – continuous protection without interruptions or slowdowns
  • Stronger identity protection with real-time anti-phishing to block fake websites that trick you into entering your personal information
  • A seamless update process – product improvements are continually added in the background, with no action required

For a quick recap of what's changed, please take a look at this video, featuring @JoeJ, our lead developer:

 

 

 

Additional screenshots and explanations are available on this page.

 

So, what are your initial thoughts?  We love feedback!

Re: The Next Generation of Webroot SecureAnywhere is Here

Jim, what happened to the "System Analyzer"? Has that been removed? And if so, is the only difference between Internet Security and Complete now only the Back up?

System Analyzer is still in there. It's under "System Control," though that area wasn't visited during the video.

There are other differences between Complete and Internet Security Plus. System Optimizer is available only in Complete. The number of devices allowed per keycode is also different based on which version you purchase, with 5 devices being available for Complete. And, as you mentioned, Backup & Sync is available only in Complete.

Thanks Jim! We're still putting the finishing touches on the 2014 release but I'll be checking in if there are any questions in the meantime.

[ Edited ]

As I've already left my feedback in private with the screenshots I will just ask these:

 

Any new functionality regarding out of date browser plugins?

 

Examples of deep architectural improvements?

 

Also, your description of phishing shield sounds more like DPI/anti-exploit detections than detecting fake Wells Fargo sites. Please explain.

 

Also, more info about Webroot Infrared?

Re: The Next Generation of Webroot SecureAnywhere is Here

I am still on my old phone so have not seen the video yet. Those screenshots look great!

I would like to hear more about "Webroot Infrared" as well.

All in all, it looks like the wait has been well worthwhile!
