Amazon users show Webroot some love!
Hi All, I'm very happy to let you know that we've been getting some really great reviews coming through Amazon for our 2013 products. We've been very strong in Amazon reviews with our SecureAnywhere product in the past so it's very exciting to see the trend continue with our newest product line. Thought I'd share a few with the Community folks! :D [b]First, two great SecureAnywhere Antivirus 2013 reviews:[/b] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/820i152CD7B5B18085AF.png[/img] [b] And now, a review from a very satisfied SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 user:[/b] [b] [/b] [b][img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/824iDBFA2C53A5D11320.png[/img] [/b] [b] [/b] I hope this is a sign of more good things to come!

Internet Policy Enforcement
Did you know Webroot Web Security Service (WWSS) can do internet policy enforcement? If you're an IT administrator looking for ways to lock down your internet use policies, you should consider [url=http://www.webroot.com/En_US/business/web-security/]trialing[/url] WWSS. Not only does it enforce internet use policies for PC's, it can also enforce policies for mobile devices and Mac's. And because it's a proxy system, it can even protect devices when those devices move off-network. You don't get that out of hardware solutions. Taking advantage of the world's largest URL database, WWSS groups websites into over 80 categories and subcategories that can be locked down or opened up to groups of users as you see fit. Are your employees looking at productivity-draining websites at work or going shopping online all day? Not anymore - and not even mobile users. Naturally, one category of websites you certainly don't want your employees visiting
SecureAnywhere Complete 2013-Another PCMag Editors' Choice!
Big News! Neil J. Rubenking of PCMag just finished up reviewing the last of our 2013 products-[url=http://bit.ly/AwyPnr]Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013[/url]. I'm thrilled to announce that we went out with a BANG. The bottom line? 4.5 stars, "Excellent" Editor Rating, and another PCMag Editors' Choice seal of approval. Read the full review [url=http://bit.ly/SqTXPY]here[/url]. From the man himself: [i]"Just what goes into a security suite? Some vendors pack in all the expected components and add backup and tuneup, creating a kind of mega-suite. Others extend protection to Macs and mobile devices, for multi-platform protection. Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 manages to do both in a package that's unbelievably small."[/i] [i] [/i] Couldn't have said it better myself. Icing on the cake.... Cheers,
Google webhp virus
I just read about the "webhp" virus for Chrome after noticing that phrase in my omnibox. I want to know if it is real, what type of threat it is to my browsing, and most importantly why my Secure Anywhere Complete didn't catch or remove it when I scan. It's pretty upsetting that a virus can exist on my computer after I bought this product. Can anyone help alleviate my concerns or tell me what I can do? Please.
Microsoft Announces a handful of Windows 8 Phones. Will you bite?
While Google was busy canceling their NYC Nexus launch announcement (they did later [url=http://bit.ly/VZ1Q58]unveil the devices[/url] on their blog), Microsoft was busy with their own announcement on the other side of the country as the Redmond software giant prepares to release a handful of Windows 8 phones in the coming month or so across a variety of US carriers. While I won't bore (or excite), you with the details (that's what the [url=http://bit.ly/TqXFeH]article[/url] and [url=http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2411484,00.asp]review[/url] are for), I will say that Windows Phone 8 adopters will have more options from the get-go than did those who elected to give Windows Phone 7 a shot. Whether you're looking for a budget-friendly Android alternative or an iPhone 5/Galaxy S3-fighting flagship smartphone, Windows has you covered (sort of). I saw "sort of" because this is based on specs and specs alone. Sure, on paper, the new Nokia 920, HTC Windows Phone 8X, and Samsung At
Internet Security Plus 2013 is "Excellent"
The verdict is out! Neil Rubenking at PCMag.com just reviewed Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus 2013 and gave it 4 out of 5 stars and a rating of "excellent." [url=http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2411513,00.asp]Read the full review here.[/url] My favorite line: [i]In testing, Webroot detected every single one of my current set of malware samples and scored 9.9 of a possible 10 points for malware blocking.[/i] A great first accolade for our newest SecureAnywhere product!
Google's Big Nexus Announcement: Canceled but not Concealed
As many of you may have heard, thanks to Hurricane Sandy, Google canceled today's NYC planned launch event that was going to serve as the unveiling ground of the new Nexus 4 phone, Nexus 10 tablet, 32 GB Nexus 7, and the new Google Now service. The good news is that the massive storm didn't completely stop the massive company-Google took the wraps off the devices via [url=http://bit.ly/S8NVU0]blog[/url]. I must say that some of the specs sound impressive-particularly the "highest resolution on the planet" screen of the Samsung Nexus 10. Here's a more [url=http://bit.ly/Q2jaDx]thorough rundown[/url] on the device. For a closer look at the LG Nexus 4 phone, click [url=http://bit.ly/QQlASA]here[/url]. It's a busy time of year for the big boys in tech. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on Google's new gadgets! Cheers,
New To This Site
I discovered Webroot by sheer accident. I have been a Norton user for many years. About a week ago I upgraded to Norton 360 Premier. With Norton, I am all too familiar with the amount of time it takes to complete routines, such as scans and backups, but I do consider it to be good software. While doing some research for the best internet security programs (I did a search on Cnet) I came across Webroot. The contrast between Norton and Webroot intrigued me, so I purchased Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete. I wanted to compare the differences between the Norton and Webroot software. Much to my surprise, I learned that I could run Norton and Webroot on the same machine without creating conflicts. So, that's precisely what I did ... I installed both programs. Much to my surprise, they seem to be functioning well, with no glitches or slowing down of processes. I am told that Webroot is non-intrusive, which allows it to function, and not compete, with Norton. So far, this seems t
Webroot wins Editors' Choice again!
[b]This just in! Webroot's VP of Global Communications, Genevieve Haldeman, passed along some great news![/b] Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2013 just received an Editors' Choice Award with 4.5 stars – AGAIN! We join Norton and BitDefender as the only Editors' Choice winners so far in this year’s round of reviews. The entire review is available online [url=http://bit.ly/VlR6fm]on PCMag.com[/url], but here are a few highlights: • An Excellent Choice Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2013 gives you speedy scanning and excellent malware blocking in a ridiculously small package. The whole product would fit on a 3.5" diskette, if you could find one. Its detection technology differs greatly from virtually all the competition, but it sure seems to work. The only worry I can think of is that a new, unknown threat might not be properly contained during the time it takes Webroot to analyze it online, and I can't say I have any evidence that could happen.
