The feature we found most valuable is the AI functionality for maintaining endpoint security. This is very powerful.Valuable features include good scanning, very light footprint and management console that the client can access and (just as important) in which I can see status of groups of computers (I am a consultant, IT role).Auto-RemediationLow performance requirements.It is very lightweight on the workstations, not slowing them down while still doing its job very well.The ease of use of the centralized admin console is its best asset.SpeedThe Webroot cloud console is very powerful.

Cons
In terms of the site-to-site VPN elements, they tend to concentrate. It's quite simple when there are Meraki devices at both ends of the VPN but if there is another user at one end, on another device, it can be a bit tricky. So they could really simplify that process a bit.Sophos needs to create a YouTube channel with educational material for technicians or engineers.They should work on the logs and events. Sophos Intercept X needs to increase the interface test so that it can export to a live event.Technical support can be improved. There could be shared support, i.e. where someone in Egypt can respond.

We need to know more details about how the virus interacted with the computer.The console spins up relatively slowly, and some of the configuration items are obscure (e.g., reporting back one time per day is a default setting) and need to be tweaked.An updated UI would be nice, but is not hardly used.Unified threat management (UTM) integration.The reporting is the weakest part of the Webroot console. Frequently, I export to Excel to massage something into it to pass on to others.It would be great if there was a feature which would allow you to scan an individual file on an endpoint user's computer.We need more control over when upgrades to the app are rolled out.It needs to improve the problems with the faster connection, and have a huge reduction in false positives.

If you purchase for clients, then you are the managing billing entity. It's better to either get a monthly subscription check from your clients, or to prepay for the year (so as to not keep cash in reserve to pay the bill each month) IMHO.Work on a price tier plan.We evaluate other options using multiple choices, best value, management and functionality.Get a trial, then a multi-year license.Our strategy was to overestimate the complexity and cost. It turned out that Webroot's assurance was justified.
