Webroot is an outstanding Internet Security suite. Easy to use, powerful and has a slick user interface. Highly recommended. Incredible protection for a great price.
Webroot has offered their latest product to the general public – the Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security 2017 suite.
The suite includes antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-malware, firewall and anti-phishing solutions for personal home use, business and corporate applications.
The program comes in three different bundles, each offering additional components, depending on the price you’re willing to pay – the basic antivirus, the Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus version and lastly, the Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete version.
The Complete version includes functionalities provided by the previous two versions along with a few unique technologies available only for that bundle.
Is Webroot Internet Security Suite Worth Buying?
In order to answer that question, we need to talk a bit more about the Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security capabilities and functions.
For the purpose of this internet security review, we’ll refer to the aforementioned product keeping the all-inclusive Complete version in mind.
The first thing you need to know and the best thing, in my opinion, about this suite is the fact that it has just a minor footprint on your system. That means that the program is easy to install, takes up just a little space and relies almost exclusively on cloud technology to run.
For you, that means close to none performance impact and tests and other reviews attest to this fact.
Through using the cloud, there’s a much better overall management of this particular software.
Virus and other malware and spyware definitions are updated accordingly and the customer support is something enviable among antivirus competitors of the Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security 2017 suite. Website and link scanning capabilities are included in this suite as well.
Scans done with this antivirus usually take a lot less to complete than any of its competitors, even if they’re complete scans that include root kits. The suite also features real-time scanning for key loggers and potential phishing activities.
You can erase your online activity completely in order to keep your browsing history, saved passwords and other, possibly private information secure.
Speaking of passwords – it also allows you to save your passwords into one single place and retrieve them whenever you need to in a safe, secure manner.
Last, but not least, the Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security 2017 suite offers 25GB of free storage on their cloud. You can access whatever you’ve stored there from any device connected to the web.
Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security 2017 Review Summary
The Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete suite offers all the aforementioned capabilities.
However, if you want the cheaper versions, you’ll still get most of its functionality and the important stuff like the antivirus, firewall and antispyware functions. But considering the low price and overall positive reviews, I don’t think you should take a compromise when it comes to your computer and your own online safety and go for the complete version.
