Webroot Business Endpoint Protection Review

Easy policy defining, light on system resources, but lacking updated features

What is our primary use case?

We have been using a two-prong security system for our network. We had a combination of Kaspersky along with Webroot Business Endpoint Protection. This gave us two layers of defense and it has been working really well for us. 

With the current increased world threat scenarios, we are looking for other protection possibilities.

What is most valuable?

The solution has many features. It is very easy to define and set the policies based on the user groups, it does not take up a lot of resources in operation, and has provided us with a good track record of protection.

What needs improvement?

The solution could improve by providing better ransomware protection.

If Webroot could match up to something similar to what a CrowdStrike or SentinelOne is providing, I would consider Webroot again. For example, there are more advanced features such as EDR and sandboxing. In SentinelOne, when there is a threat it automatically does the analysis and provides you with detailed reports, but Webroot is lacking in the details.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for approximately two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In my experience the solution is stable.

We have approximately 75 people using the solution in my organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have used the support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have previously used many other solutions, such as Mcafee and Norton. Many of them were pretty heavy on resources and users are complaining about slowness on the systems. This is why we had to move to another solution, which is a combination of Kaspersky and Webroot. 

How was the initial setup?

The installation is straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Webroot Business Endpoint Protection a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
