Cool Features:

Eset has advanced parental control with the ability to block unwanted websites by category or individual websites. Their anti-theft feature helps you track down your laptop if it gets stolen which is definitely a unique feature. Another different feature of Eset is the webcam security. If a rogue program takes control of your webcam Eset will notify you of such a violation of privacy.

Cool Features:

Webroot uses a unique method for cloud detection. It relies on the cloud to not touch safe programs and attack dangerous programs. The unique feature is if Webroot finds an unknown program it pauses any irreversible actions such as transmitting private data and it monitors all actions taken by the program. Meanwhile a combination of automated systems and real human experts back at Webroot Headquarters analyze the questionable program. If the human experts determine there is danger then your local Webroot utility will take action on the dangerous program. Furthermore it will reverse actions taken in its logs in an attempt to undo the damage. Webroot states that it can take between 45 and 90 minutes for a decision to be made on a questionable programs by human analysis. For this reason removing all viruses is not instant but is quite useful that professionals will help you behind the scenes. See other features at webroot.com.

Business / Endpoint Info:

Remote Administrator now runs on either Windows or Linux. Schedule or initiate scans and configure policies and rules from the Remote Administrator. It is not necessary to install Remote Administrator on premise. It can be run from the cloud on Microsoft Azure. The Endpoint Security product comes with data encryption options and two-factor authentication. Safetica technology has a grocery list of settings to prevent your sensitive data from leaving the company via CD, DVD, emails, etc. Even copy and paste is blocked if you want that. The Server Security suite provides file security for Windows Server / Linux / Azure, mail security for Exchange Server, and more.

Business / Endpoint Info:

Webroot has a super cool feature where you can test out a live demo of the Endpoint Protection in action on their website without downloading or installing anything. It features a web-based dashboard that will notify you of any viruses on any computers in the network. Control every aspect of the software from the Policies tab. I counted 150+ settings available to be customized in the Policies tab alone. Some of these settings include advanced heuristics, popularity heuristics, operating background functions using fewer CPU resources, enabling or disabling enhanced rootkit detection, favor low memory usage over fast scanning, and more. Organize the computers on the network by groups like Human Resources and Programmers for example. Easily generate reports showing user computers with threats on them. Webroot is not shy to take on competitors. Their website claims to write, open, and close files 16x faster than Microsoft. They also claim to use 20x less memory than McAfee. Impressive numbers.

Detection:

ESET can identify Rbot, Zbot, Sirefef, Spatet, Autorun, Dorkbot, Bifrose, Qhost, Delf, and TrojanDownloader.Wauchos to name a few.

Detection:

Webroot can identify Spora, Locky (Osiris), Sama, Crysis, Nemucod, and Fantom to name a few.

Customer Support:

ESET Support includes a forum, a knowledgebase, and a contact form.

Customer Support:

WebRoot has a troubleshooting agent which attempts to solve the problem. If that fails you can submit the issue via an online form.
