I'd like to know what sort of protection is available to protect data in lost/stolen pc. For example, upon request, can webroot wipe the data or prevent it from being accessed? And if webroot doesn't do that sort of stuff, are there other programs/ security systems that can be purchased to do that?

Note I am only pointing you in a direction and thus we cant offer any support. So if you forget your password your data will be lost.
Other options would be a remote wipe but these arent 100% reliable as the device has to recieve a wipe signal in the 1st place so if the thief keeps the device off-line they can access your data.
It's free and open source.
Agreed on using TrueCrypt to encrypt the device, if you're worried about your data.
Also, Macs have both the encryption and device finding built-in.
Although Truecrypt doesn't support Win8, it works with Win8 and Win 8.1 regardless. It can fully encrypt the system and drives no problem. Also like Baldrick said Support for Win8 and uefi boot is first on the TrueCrypt team's priority list.
Truecrypt can be used with no worries.:)
