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.
Kaspersky provides some creative solutions! The Secure Connection feature is worth mentioning. The Secure Connection technology assists in protecting data when you connect to public networks such as internet cafes. Secure Connection makes sure all sent & received data is encrypted & protected from theft or tracking. I do not know of any other antivirus that does this. The Kaspersky Installation Assistant will support you during the installation process of new programs from the internet. It will ensure that you install nothing extra besides the programs you have selected. The Safe Surf technology warns you about potentially malicious websites. URL Advisor uses cloud-based data to determine the reputation of websites. URL Advisor will display a color-coded icon to show you whether a link is trusted, suspicious or dangerous. File Shredder totally destroys unwanted files. See other features at Kaspersky.com.
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.
Business / Endpoint Info:
Kaspersky offers a Small Office solution for less than 45 employees. Anything larger than 45+ employees will require their Endpoint Security solution. Let's talk about the Small Office solution first. This is designed to work out-of-the-box without much IT skills required. This does not mean that the product lacks the punch. Powerful security tools are included to connect any device you choose. Administrate the software from a single admin web page which will display the security status of all your devices. Activate Small Office on any device and have easy access to the Technical Support. Features include anti-phishing, anti-spam, anti-ransomware, backup and encryption. Secure email and web activity
against hidden exploits and a malware. Possibly one of the coolest features of Small Office is the anti-cryptor. If you have ever heard of a crypto-locker the anti-cryptor defends against this kind of attack which can lock you out of your own files on the network and demand a ransom to unlock them. Protect Windows PCs, laptops, servers, Mac computers and Android mobile devices.
