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.

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.
