If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
My advice about this product is that it is a very good solution and offers a stable and trusted software that runs smoothly and is easy to deploy. It was missing some features that were desirable like reporting, but it was good a solution. I really do not know why they are not providing the product anymore, especially considering that most people right now are using tablets and mobiles — not computers as much as before. Their policy has them heading in another business direction. I would have preferred to stay with the product. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Webroot Endpoint Protection as about an eight. But even concerning adding reporting and maybe some other minor features, I do not think the product would be a ten because I am convinced there is no software product that is absolutely perfect. A ten is something I have not seen before.
We use the cloud deployment model. We originally used the paid version, which was a complete version of the solution. We don't use the solution extensively; it's a very budgeted amount. We need more advanced capabilities than we can get with Webroot. For companies who do not suffer advanced attacks, Webroot will be amazing for them and very budget-friendly for their business. However, companies will need to search for an expansion into areas like PCI compliance. For attacks, it's better to go over to more advanced protection. It can provide you the forensics and the EDR automation needed to avoid any attacks. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. The solution isn't perfect, but it's good.
To implement endpoint protection, Webroot is a good product. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate this product an eight. Maybe it could be better. I've had no significant virus problems since I installed it. For us, that's what it's all about.
Setup two-factor for the admin console, give "manager" clients access to their own consoles (good PR), and keep a set of shortcut links to the pre-configured install images for each client (if you are using that model). Otherwise, you have to login to download a crafted version for the account, and that sometimes (compromised network) is not a good idea (reveals credentials).
