Good application for internet users looking to secure their domain data

What is our primary use case?

I've worked in the IT industry for almost 15 years. I have worked with many applications, like Webroot and other anti-viruses. Webroot's domain can be secured for malware attacks. Their website, email data, and domain data can be secured from unwanted malware attacks and otherwise. I have found Webroot to be a good application for internet users looking to secure their domain data.

Pros and Cons

  • "Almost everyone who uses it is happy about the product. I don't get any types of complaints from my clients."
  • "It needs to be more secure for production environments."

What other advice do I have?

Almost everyone who uses it is happy about the product. I don't get any types of complaints from my clients. I would rate Webroot DNS a nine out of ten.

Speedy, finds a lot of infections, and protects your computer

Pros and Cons

  • "The installation is easy and doesn't take long. The program speedy and doesn't crash. It doesn't consume computer hardware or software."
  • "The reporting system needs improvement. They should make is that we can customize it so we can add, remove or change its interface but they use a template. The reports cannot be changed."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Nothing at all can be 10 or be perfect. No solution on the market gets a ten. I rate it an eight because of the features. To make it better, they should have the ability to customize or add remote desktops. I would recommend Webroot; it is a very good solution and a solid solution that keeps our computers protected. It works smoothly, with no problems. It is a very good solution. I can highly recommend for others to buy and go for.
