Webroot SecureAnywhere

Endpoint Anti Virus Protection

Why is computer protection important?
Computers that are not secured will rapidly be confronted with a variety of threats and annoyances that could include viruses, trojan horses, worms, spyware, hacker attacks, spam, inappropriate content and many more. Typical consequences of such threats range from loss of files and slowing down your computer to theft of personal data.
What is Webroot SecureAnywhere?
Advanced threat protection for PCs and Macs that stops threats in real time and secures businesses and individuals wherever they connect.

  • Firewall and network connection monitor
  • Identity theft protection
  • Real-time anti-phishing blocks harmful sites
  • Is Webroot SecureAnywhere compatible with my apps?
    Webroot SecureAnywhere is made to be compatible with most software on your computer, but there can be times when a conflict occurs. However, this is very rare. Other software may report that there could be an issue with your Antivirus or Firewall, when this may not be the case.
    Webroot SecureAnywhere is so small, is it working?
    Webroot SecureAnywhere is unique in that it leverages the power of cloud computing to protect your computer. In a simplistic way, it uses a powerful algorithm to offload all the processing hardwork to the cloud, leaving your PC protected without the slowdowns.

  • What happens during an infection?
    A computer virus attaches itself to, overwrites or otherwise replaces another program in order to reproduce itself without your knowledge. This may quickly use your computer's available memory and slow down the system or possibly bring it to a halt. Viruses may encrypt and lock your photos and files, demanding a ransom for the unlock key, known as Ransomware. Others damage data files, attempt to destroy files or possibly make disks unreadable. Viruses can delete files, format hard drives or mix up the data on them.

    Malware (malicious software) is any file or software that can do harm to a computer system. Malware is a common term that is used for Internet threats like viruses, Trojan horses, worms and spyware.
