Did You Know?

New Idea

Please make a report of endpoints that have checked in that are not on the latest software version. This indicates a problem on the client condition that must be addressed. 

When an endpoint has journaled a program and stored info in a db###.db file, please have that fact avaliable in the console along with the created, last updated, and size of the journal. 


The list of journaled data is already in WRData\Journal reg key.

For some reason, Secure Anywhere stopped working on several endpoints.  It was weeks before we knew a problem actually existed, during which time one of the PCs was actually infected with a virus.

The only reason I found out was by looking on the web console at the "Last Seen" date and I noticed that several PCs had not been seen in weeks.

Rebooting those PCs and then installing the newer build of Secure Anywhere seemed to solve that problem.  But, it would have been nice to know that there was a problem in the first place.  The Secure Anywhere icon sat in the tray and looked like it was protecting us, but it was doing nothing.  Right-clicking on it produced no results, and you couldn't even open the program.


I request a new alert be created that will e-mail the endpoint/PC name, date "Last Seen", and version fo Secure Anywhere if an endpoint has not been seen for a given number of days (that we can set on the alert).

I'd like to know when an endpoint hasn't been seen for more than 3 days as that is highly unusual in our organization...even when people are on vacation.

Changing key code for endpoint

Status: New

When you want to change key code for current endpoint it is simple but when you open a list of your keycodes, exacly, they are only keycodes. It will be great if you give option for adding name for key code - for example : lkasj-809asd-asdasd12-asd1 (Barber Shop)

Website Exception Management in Console

Status: Under Consideration
by ParkCountyGov ‎02-05-2014 05:53 PM - edited ‎02-05-2014 05:58 PM

Desperately need an addition to the Console that allows administrators the ability to add exceptions or "whitelist" valid and legitmate websites.  We have had numerous instances where users have attempted to visit a legitimate website (such as and are presented with a message that the site contains malicious content and offers the option to close or allow.


We do not want users to have the ability to click "Allow" on every site they come across that presents this warning (as all they care about is getting to the site they want) and would rather have the ability to whitelist legitmate sites that users report they cannot access, just as we're able to do on any Web Filtering Appliance / Service.


I have seen numerous forums and discussion boards where many other Webroot customers desperately desire the same functionality.  I saw where one of your developers said it is in the works, but that was more than half a year ago.  Please expedite this Feature Request and add this functionality to your next version update.  Thank You.

USB scan

Status: New
by Webroot Employee on ‎06-19-2014 09:00 AM

I am creating a request on behalf of one of our customers regarding the ability of Webroot to automatically scan USB's as they connect to a device. They would like this to be a feature that can be turned on/off from the Policies in the online Management Console.




Context sensitive options destroy usability

When I see an endpoint in the console, I should see a full list of all commands I can send to it. When I run an Undetermined Software report, I don't want to just create overrides. I want to send reverify commands.


In the list of endpoints encountering threats, I don't just want to see the blocked programs. I want to send commands to it.


Please stop removing my choices of what I can do with your product.

More useful information on undetermined software

Status: New
by Community Guide regnor on ‎10-30-2014 03:44 AM

As many here in the community have stated it's hard to get an overview over the undetermined software in the Webroot console. I can confirm that by myself as an export of the list contains more than 1000 entrys, which is the current limit for the export so there will probably be much more.

Of course undetermined/unknown software by itself doesn't have to be bad at all, but there are many cases where you need to get an overview what software is unkown to Webroot:

  • software which produces much data -> results in big rollback files on the client
  • driver installations -> should get whitelisted
  • software where WSA blocks certain functions
  • PUA which won't be detected by Webroot
  • new malware or malware which won't be in the wild

I would recommend to add additional information fields:

  • rollback database size
  • rollback database name(local on the client,dbXXXXX.db)
  • risk estimation: a counter which shows how deep or dangerous changes by the software are( runs in user context or does require admin rights, installs driver/service, changes C:\windows\* files,...)
  • root process: which process/executable created the undetermined files

Also additional filters:

  • file extension (eg. show only .exe)
  • filter by product (a single unknown executable can produces countless additional files)


Also it's very important that the 'out of sort' problem gets resolved in the near future:

Search feature

I was wondering, it will be nice if you place searching option in each place the files or threats are listed. It will be very helpful option for someone, who has to explore for example, over 200 overrides.


Best regards

Website Blocked Alert

Status: New
by New Voice Gigabyte on ‎07-08-2014 10:03 AM

In addition to needing a way to whitelist certain websites, or even a way to report them to Webroot through the console, we need to be able to create an alert to let us know if a user visits a website that is blocked by Webroot. This will help us respond quicker to a situation where a user comes to a legitimate website that many people in our company visit on a daily basis. Without this we are dependent on user feedback, which by the time we get any could be an issue for a lot of people...


Having an alert to notify us if a user comes to a blocked website is crucial to the WSA product, almost just as crucial as being able to whitelist (add exceptions or overrides for) certain websites. It will help us be more responsive and help us determine if we have issue before it becomes a big one for our company.


Please add this feature.
