Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete – Review
SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete is Webroot’s top-of-the-line product for consumers; it encompasses all the functionality the company has to offer for this category of customers in order to deliver easy to configure comprehensive protection without putting a heavy load on the system.
ll Webroot consumer products have the same installer, which is less than 1MB in size, and the same interface, the package-specific components being enabled through the license code inputted during the installation process.
Getting the package on the system is an easy task that does not require rebooting. Among the options available for this operation there is the possibility to rename the installed file name to a random string in order to bypass certain threats that may attempt the installation of a security product on an infected machine.
The entire procedure is swift and involves checking for compatibility problems, analyzing the programs already available to minimize alerts as well as performance optimization routines.
Apart from the anti-malware module that is available in all SecureAnywhere products, Complete edition includes a password manager along with file backup and synchronization capabilities that come with 25GB of online storage.
Also included is a system optimization tool that can remove junk files to reclaim free space and eliminates browsing tracks in order to maintain privacy.
As far as detection of new threats is concerned, Webroot products work based mostly on the presumption of innocence; that is, they rely on behavior analysis to determine whether a program is malicious or not. Signatures are also used, but to a lesser extent.
The developer maintains a vast database of threats and legitimate programs and, based on this, the real-time shield determines if they stay or go. In the case of potential threats, users receive an alert and decide on the continuing action.
